FRASER COAST businesspeople are being urged to get their tickets to next month’s special business summit soon to avoid disappointment.
The summit takes place at the Beach House Hotel in Scarness on Friday, 14 May.
Australian TV presenter and respected finance expert David Koch will headline the event.
Deputy Mayor Darren Everard said the summit would be a great way for local businesses to network and gain insights into how to bounce back in 2021.
“Kochie is one of Australia’s most recognised and respected faces. He is best known as a co-host of the Seven Network’s breakfast program, Sunrise, but he is also a former business owner and board director who is one of Australia’s foremost business and finance commentators,” Cr Everard said.
“We are excited to have a guest speaker of Kochie’s calibre here on the Fraser Coast and I encourage local business people to get in quick and book their tickets as we expect this special event to be a sell-out,” he continued.
