Free mo­ti­va­tional ses­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

BEST-SELL­ING small busi­ness au­thor An­drew Grif­fith will host a free mo­ti­va­tional pre­sen­ta­tion in Port Dou­glas next week.

Mr Grif­fith will share seven clear-cut strate­gies to dra­mat­i­cally in­crease busi­ness suc­cess and give tips on deal­ing with the mod­ern con­sumers, net­work­ing and com­pet­ing against the in­ter­net.

Known for his abil­ity to en­ter­tain, in­spire and to en­er­gise, Mr Grif­fith has be­come a highly sought-af­ter key­note speaker.

From hum­ble be­gin­nings grow­ing up as an or­phan in Western Australia to a se­ries of very suc­cess­ful small busi­nesses, Mr Grif­fith has a very colour­ful back­ground to demon­strate to oth­ers that any­thing is pos­si­ble.

“No one could deny that run­ning a small busi­ness has got tough, re­ally tough, in the last few years. Places like Port Dou­glas that are heav­ily de­pen­dent on tourism have felt the pinch a lot more than oth­ers,” Mr Grif­fith said.

“We have to be care­ful we don’t slide into vic­tim men­tal­ity and a sense of help­less­ness. Now is the time that small busi­nesses need to step up, in­vest time and en­ergy and pos­i­tiv­ity in what they are do­ing.

“At­ti­tude plays a crit­i­cal part to suc­cess and my aim at the Cham­ber event is put what is go­ing on into per­spec­tive, to share my own ex­pe­ri­ences and ob­ser­va­tions with what we need to do to come out the other side stronger and tougher.”

The event, spon­sored by The Port Dou­glas Cham­ber of Com­merce and Queens­land Flex­i­ble Fund­ing, will be held on Tues­day May 29, at The Clink Theatre from 6.15pm.
