Learning from the Experts - Connecting with the Community - 19/6/2018

| Tuesday June 19

Small Biz Matters – a half hour program each week where you can work ON your business rather than IN it.
with Alexi Boyd from Boyd Office Management Services
Date: 19 June 2018

We can learn a lot from the experts in small business. Those more experienced; business advisors who are leaders in their fields and in fact community groups who act as a real Hub for everyone; tapping into the resources and local businesses to support those around them from all walks of life.

A real bastion of community groups in Australia is the PCYC. Around for decades, they are the experts when it comes to collaboration and creating a hub around you as a business within their community.  

How do they connect so well?

Take for example Small business: Did you know PCYC Hornsby KuringGai has meeting & boardroom facilities available to small business at a great, reduced rate? And they can cater for functions? Breakfast meetings are a great option too. Thinking of hosting an unusual, collaborative event for the local community? Chances are the PCYC has the facilities you need.

Joining us today is David Grant, the Senior Club Manager & Peter Kirkwood from PCYC & Rotary.

Topics we’ll be covering:

Here are some other great ways in which your local PCYC engages with and supports the community.

  • Engagement with twelve local primary & high schools

    • St Edmunds disability programs

    • In-house sports programs for schools in area
