We're excited to bring you 'The Power of Resilience and Growth Mindset in Business' on Thursday, 26 October 2023 in partnership with the NSW Government's NSW Small Business Month 2023 Grant Program.

The evening will commence with a networking opportunity over nibbles for the region’s small businesses.
