Small Biz Matters – #180 Providing the small business community with educational content and advocacy since 2014
with Alexi Boyd, broadcaster, advocate and small business owner.
Date: 6 October 2020
We talk a lot on this program about advocacy and how you, the listener, are a leader. You’re passionate about small business whether that’s you being more successful in your own business, leading others by example or mentoring someone less experienced.
So, thanks to all of you from your small business community.
But what if you took it to the next level? What if you made advocacy your core work and grew a successful business from the foundation of looking after others?
Our guest today has done that not just once, but six times over. Amanda Rose is a columnist, TEXx speaker and the Founder of Small Business Women Australia.
Topics we’ll be covering:
- Tell us about your work with the Small Business Women Australia and how this advocacy strategy has supported specifically this group of small businesses?
- Why did you decide to support women in western Sydney in particular?
- What have you learned from your recent COVID survey results conducted on your Small Business Women Australia group?
- Why is real time data crucial for policy makers and how can it be used more effectively?
