Adventurer, award-winning documentary-maker, television presenter, and businessman, Todd Sampson, will headline with the Geelong Small Business Festival in a packed event at The Pier Geelong.
During the opening event, the business, advertising and marketing guru will reveal the practical tools and techniques you can use to improve your brain and meet the challenges and stresses of modern life.
City of Greater Geelong Mayor Peter Murrihy:
We’re proud to host the festival and help local businesses gain insights from one of the best business minds in the country.
Guest speakers, like Todd, can really inspire business owners and operators to try something different and take their business to the next level.
We’re thrilled to have secured Todd for this headline event, and we encourage everyone to book early because tickets are likely to sell out
Whether you’re experienced in business, a budding entrepreneur or looking to start your own business, the festival provides opportunities to hear from industry experts, up-skill, and make new business connections.
Now in its 12th year, our region’s largest dedicated business festival features an exciting program of more than 50 low-cost and free events designed to connect, inspire, grow, and support our local business community.
Economic Development Deputy Chair, Councillor Bruce Harwood:
Todd Sampson will present an information session titled Boost your Brain Power, followed by a question-and-answer session.
Along with hearing from one of Australia’s best business minds, this is a fantastic opportunity for local business operators to network and make new contacts with like-minded businesses and industry experts.
Small businesses are a huge driver of Greater Geelong’s economy, so we want to provide learning and development opportunities for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
We have more than 19,000 small businesses in Greater Geelong, making up around 97 per cent of all businesses.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, much of last year’s festival was held online, with a small number being held in person and with a reduced capacity. Despite this shift, the festival still provided an important boost to our small business community and was attended by almost 700 people.
