UNIVERSITY SEMINAR TO PROVIDE KEY TO SURVIVING THE ECONOMIC CRISIS

 

If the economic downturn has you wondering about investment opportunities or strategies to give your business the edge, then the free seminar by Southern Cross University could be for you.
 
Far from predicting disaster for individuals and companies, the third in the series of free Business Insight evenings held by the University’s Graduate College of Management will shed light on how to profit from opportunities in the current economic climate and maintain a successful business in the coming year. 
 
Jim Taggart (pictured), president of the Australian Financial Advisors of Australia and managing director of the Taggart Group, Jim Taggart, will present ‘Investing in 2009: Individual and Business Opportunities’.
 
“Many small enterprises and individuals have felt the impact of the global economic crisis and will continue to do so for a while yet, but it is important that they recognise that there are also considerable opportunities for investors in the current climate,” says Taggart.
 
“I will be providing guidance on market trends and identifying the sectors with the most potential, as well as looking at smart investment strategies for 2009.
 
“There are some practical techniques that businesses and individuals can use to thrive in the current economic conditions, and I’ll be showing how it can be done.”
 
Principal of Robina-based consultancy firm, Cornerstone Business Developments, Adrian Sim, will present ‘Get the Edge: Developing a Competitive Advantage’.
 
Sim, who has extensive experience in presenting to small and large businesses and is a member of the Gold Coast and Southport Chambers of Commerce, says the most successful enterprises would be those which had a positive outlook and worked smarter.
 
“With its robust banking sector, skilled workforce and strong fundamentals in some industries, Australia is well placed to take on the challenging times ahead,” says Sim.
 
“The trick for small and medium business owners is to uncover significant opportunities among the risks.
 
“Market dynamics have changed, so companies now have the chance to make innovative changes to their product offerings.
 
“Assets and services have been re-priced, which paves the way for some prospects to become more affordable for businesses.
 
“As most business people know, you make your own luck, and I’ll be providing ideas on how they can do just that in these uncertain times.”
 
The free Business Insight evening entitled ‘Opportunities in a Recovering Economy’ will take place on Wednesday, February 25, at the Sofitel in Broadbeach at 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. Seats are limited. More info at: [email protected].
