Strategy Is For Everyone

It was Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, Prussian Army Chief of Staff during the 19th Century, who stated that “No battle plan survives first contact with the enemy.”

His line has been adopted and adapted many times over in everything from boxing to business. Despite that, many businesses and organisations persist in spending inordinate amounts of time, money and resources in detailed long-range planning that ends up being worthless past the very first stage of implementation.

ATO Seminars

I’m pleased to announce that following discussion with the Australian Taxation Office’s outreach arm, the Chamber of Commerce And Community will now be listing ATO’s educational seminars held locally in Ellenbrook.

The seminars are free and are lead by experienced businesspeople and experts, providing valuable information to help all types of businesses to grow.

For small businesses and organisations, particularly, these seminars provide a valuable learning opportunity.

We will regularly add the seminars to our events page, as we are notified of them by the ATO.

The addition of this link is all part of our growing services connecting you with valuable resources, opportunities and information.

Register here at

This event is shaping up to be a tremendous opportunity for exhibitors, businesses and consumers. We are arranging special exhibitors from a number of government services to provide information and advice and have a growing slate of businesses and organisations displaying to make this a fantastic event for all of Perth Metro North (and you all in the Metro South are also welcome) and surrounds.

How Does An Expo Benefit You?

Business Expos provide you as business owners/managers and not-for-profit organisations a prime position to promote yourself to other businesses and consumers, allowing prospects and potential connections the time to talk with you and examine what you have to offer. They continue to run the world over as a prime method of ‘displaying and promoting your wares’, even (or perhaps especially) in this digital age.

In conjunction with an attractive, interactive display and creative thinking, almost any business or organisation can engage others as a vital ingredient in their marketing mix. Capture the attendees’ contact data and you instantly expand the number of interested parties on your mailing list. Provide special and packaged offers and you develop instant buyers or investors. Talk with potential partners and even learn from the friendly competition around.

We have designed the Expo to be a valuable opportunity for both exhibitors and attendees of all persuasions. With Government 2 Business, Business 2 Business and Business 2 Consumer services throughout, VIP guest speakers from all levels of government and special mini-seminars, there will be multiple benefits attracting attendees and adding value to their experience. This means that as an exhibitor you are not just relying on your own brand name and that of the Chamber to draw people in, but have big recognisable names and worthwhile events attracting others.

Register Now

Register to exhibit at early bird rates now. The event is open to Chamber Members – businesses and not-for-profits – and to non-Members as well.
Display opportunities are not infinite, so it’s first come, first served.

Remember, early bird registration closes promptly at 5 pm, WST, on May 15.

Girls Without Limits Success

We’re thrilled to pass on the news that Chamber Members Girls Without Limits have received $300,000 in federal grant monies to continue their amazing success.

Federal MP for Pearce and Attorney-General Christian Porter (pictured with some of the ladies from GWL) and his staff were instrumental in assisting Girls Without Limits to secure this grant. Christian and his staff have been fabulous supporters of the Chamber and have continued to work on the behalf of a number of our Members to secure assistance and, where applicable, grants.

What’s Your Brand?

Sharron Attwood recently spoke on the topic of creating a distinctive, purposeful and consistent personal and corporate brand at our first Lunch ‘N Learn. Members and guests were highly intrigued and found the discussion both valuable and enjoyable. Sharron is a real asset to our Chamber and definitely knows what she’s speaking about.

Sharron asked a great question: “What do people say about you after you’ve left the room?”

As I said to the gathered group, as we draw business and services and look to promote our not-for-profits, community groups and businesses, we need to look and work like pros. Even when people approach a community group, they want to know that it’s not a joke and that matters are treated and managed sensibly, ethically and professionally – time and resources willing.

Sharron consistently demonstrates that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great distinctive style, be relaxed and friendly, be real and have fun at the same time. In fact, sometimes that proves the case that you are confident enough in your professionalism that you can relax and be yourself.

Sharron currently has a very special offer available for her coaching and consulting services. Visit her site at to find out more. It’s a steal!
