‘Don’t’ fall into the social media trap’ will be the key message for local businesses at the first Business Breakfast event of 2019, proudly sponsored by the City of Melville and Melville-Cockburn Chamber of Commerce (MCCC).
Now in its third year, the Business Breakfast series was created by the City and the MCCC who wanted to support local businesses by offering practical skills they can take away and start using as soon as they get back to their business.
At the April event, speaker Pete Walmsley from the Space Station will explore the strengths and limitations of social media and how to develop a clear strategy, recognising that organisations too often invest considerable time and money on social media without a clear plan in place.
City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the City was committed to supporting growth and prosperity for local businesses and the local economy.
“By combining a 7.00am start with a quick continental breakfast and a 9.00am finish, the quarterly breakfasts have been very popular, helping local businesses get the training they need with minimal disruption to their working day,” Mayor Aubrey said.
Melville-Cockburn Chamber of Commerce President Tony Romano said the Chamber’s mission was to encourage and foster business growth.
“We have found our partnership with the City of Melville to be an effective way of increasing our outreach to the wider business community and the feedback we have had over the last three years has demonstrated that businesses welcome and value this collaboration” Mr Romano said.
Don’t fall into the social media trap will be held on Thursday, 4 April 2019 at the City of Melville Civic Centre from 7.00am to 9.00am, at a cost of $29 for MCCC members and $35 for non-members including a continental breakfast.
