Speakers break down barriers
The second Karratha and Districts Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Bootcamp was designed to boost the self-confidence of business people and introduce a greater focus on state of mind.
Speakers such as Flying Solo editor Kelly Exeter and Brain Fit director Jenny Brockis discussed topics such as mental barriers to success and how states of mind can affect business.
Mrs Brockis said some of the modern world’s demands, most notably multitasking, could limit our ability to focus on and complete tasks effectively.
“We are addicted to being busy ... it has become normal,” she said. “Your brain has to make a choice — do we go with speed or accuracy? —because we can’t have both.”
KDCCI vice-president Robin Vandenberg said feedback from guests indicated all six speakers had imparted new ideas for attendees at the forum.
“The chamber is obviously trying to get confidence back into small business and change the way they do things,” he said.
“I have been to many of these types of events over many years and ... I don’t think I’ve been to a day where all six (speakers) were very, very highcalibre.”
