The Tweed por­tal open for busi­ness

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

The Tweed is the nat­u­ral choice for busi­ness and a great place to in­vest in your fu­ture. That was the mes­sage at the launch of the Tweed Busi­ness In­vest­ment Guide and Busi­ness Por­tal held at Kingscliff last Tues­day.

Up to 100 rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lo­cal busi­nesses came along to cel­e­brate NSW Small Busi­ness Month and hear from some of the Tweedõs most suc­cess­ful busi­ness own­ers, such as Husk Dis­tillers, Wa­ter­sports Guru, The Beach Peo­ple, Qu­a­tro De­sign and Mur­willum­bah Farm­ers Mar­ket, who took part in a lively Q&A panel and spoke with pas­sion about their love for the Tweed.

Tim Jack-adams, Wa­ter­sports Guru: Òthe Tweed has ev­ery­thing you could pos­si­bly want to run a suc­cess­ful busi­ness in one desti­na­tion and I now have three busi­nesses in the Tweed. Each one uses the iconic nat­u­ral as­sets and aims to re­con­nect peo­ple through na­ture and the en­vi­ron­ment.ó

Vic­to­ria Hen­der­son, The Beach Peo­ple: ÒWE man­u­fac­ture all over the world, have of­fices in three lo­ca­tions and work across mul­ti­ple cur­ren­cies and teams and we are able to do all that from the Tweed.ó

Sue Beck­in­sale, Mur­willum­bah Farm­ers Mar­ket: Òpeo­ple in the Tweed are in­ter­ested in the food they eat and there is a strong de­mand for beau­ti­fully grown or­ganic food.ó

Chris North, Qu­a­tro De­sign: Òwhen we first started our busi­ness here we were a lit­tle ap­pre­hen­sive we were not go­ing to find the sup­pli­ers and trades that we needed. We ac­tu­ally found the com­plete op­po­site. The lo­cal com­mu­nity has a re­ally im­pres­sive skill set and the qual­ity of ser­vice we get from sur­round­ing busi­nesses far ex­ceeded my ex­pec­ta­tions.ó

Ed­wina Mes­sen­ger, Husk Dis­tillers: Òthe North­ern Rivers re­gion is be­com­ing known for the qual­ity of its pro­duc­ers, so be­ing here works for us and our busi­ness.ó

Coun­cil Gen­eral Man­ager Troy Green said the event was a great op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tives to min­gle and cel­e­brate what made them choose the Tweed to in­vest in.

Òthere are so many rea­sons to in­vest in and grow your busi­ness in the Tweed, apart from the ob­vi­ous life­style ben­e­fits and nat­u­ral beauty of the var­ied land­scapes,ó Mr Green said.

Òthe Tweed has a di­verse and pro­duc­tive econ­omy Ð with health ser­vices, con­struc­tion, re­tail, ed­u­ca­tion and tourism among the most sig­nif­i­cant sec­tors Ð and con­trib­utes al­most $2.5 bil­lion to Aus­trali­aõs econ­omy an­nu­ally.ó
