Among our keynote speaker line-up for the day we will be joined by Lucy Bloom, an award-winning leader and speaker, Lucy’s a change maker, exceptional communicator and business fixer with the best mohawk in the business.

Her topic for BDO will focus on ‘Doing Business Differently’. Participants will hear from a variety of keynote speakers and have the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals throughout the day.

This conference is planned and priced to ensure it is mostly accessible to all businesses. We hope to see you at Business Day Out, Wednesday, 27 May 2020!

Nominations for the 2020 Federation Business School Commerce Ballarat Business Excellence Awards open on Thursday 19 March. The underpinning philosophy of these awards is to foster innovation, promote excellence and recognise achievements and efforts. By nominating your business, you will begin a process of self-analysis rarely seen in day-to-day operations.

Preparation and planning for the growth that is and will continue to occur is critical to ensure we maintain the standard of living that we currently enjoy in our beautiful city.

Whilst causing some initial disruption, the works to our main thoroughfares of Mair and Sturt streets are much needed and will deliver better traffic flow and be safer for pedestrians.

It is thrilling to watch GovHub rise from the ground in the past months, the development of the building of this State government project will inject $100 million creating up to 500 construction jobs into our economy during the build and with 600 new jobs continue to stimulate our CBD businesses into the future.

While change can be challenging for all of us, to ensure a vibrant healthy city for future generations we must be open to and embrace new opportunities.
