A busi­ness boot camp aims to of­fer up a se­ries of en­ter­tain­ing and in­for­ma­tive pre­sen­ta­tions for small to medium busi­nesses in Kar­ratha.

The Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Busi­ness Boot­camp will be held on July 27 at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex.

KDCCI chief ex­ec­u­tive John Lally said ex­perts would present in­spir­ing back­grounds and busi­ness hacks tai­lored to the au­di­ence.

“With fam­ily-friendly hours and short, punchy pre­sen­ta­tions, the boot camp will pro­vide at­ten­dees with a pre­scrip­tive so­lu­tion on how to power up their mar­ket­ing and sales ac­tiv­ity,” he said.

Speak­ers will in­clude Beech­worth Bak­ery founder Tom O’Toole, best known for cre­at­ing one of Aus­tralia’s most suc­cess­ful stand­alone re­tail bak­ery busi­nesses, which now em­ploys more than 250 staff with a turnover in ex­cess of $17 mil­lion and serv­ing more than 1 mil­lion cus­tomers per year.

Tim Reid is also set to fea­ture and is the host of The Small Busi­ness Big Mar­ket­ing Show pod­cast and au­thor of The Boomerang Ef­fect.

Cath Suther­land is a dy­namic Perth busi­ness­woman who be­gan her ca­reer as a cre­ative di­rec­tor for ra­dio sta­tions through­out Aus­tralia and later worked in events, public re­la­tions and na­tional mar­ket­ing man­age­ment. In 2000, she es­tab­lished her Perth-based con­sul­tancy, now Con­scious Busi­ness, which spe­cialises in help­ing busi­nesses be­come more con­scious of who they are, and to un­der­stand how “be­ing” who they are, is the key to their busi­ness suc­cess.

Nina Hob­son has been one of six fi­nal­ists of her cat­e­gory in the Telstra Women’s Busi­ness Awards and her com­pany was also a fi­nal­ist in the small busi­ness cat­e­gory of the Telstra Busi­ness Awards.
