SHIFT YOUR BUSINESS UP A GEAR

ORGANIC growth will drive the Gold Coast’s SME sector in 2011 and there’s plenty of scope to capitalise on opportunities. The trick will be how to convert confidence into profits.

This new landscape will present new challenges too. Lending remains tight and many are bracing for another RBA rate rise next month. Identifying new clients and offering new products to existing clients could be the difference between surviving and growing.
