Blog Talk in Ballina for Small Business Month

I’m one of the presenters at a lunchtime seminar tomorrow in Ballina, an hour and a half or so south of where I live. I’ll be speaking about business blogging, natch. Another local guy, Dave Heggie, of Digital and Virtual Education (DaVE) will be handling a wider range of web stuff – so I should be able to leave the geekier questions to him, which is just as well!

The event is being put on by the Northern Rivers Business Advisory Service (NORBAS) and the Ballina Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., as part of the statewide Small Business Month, which is in turn sponsored by the state government (New South Wales) and various corporate sponsors, as outlined at the website. Can’t find reference to tomorrow’s event on the website, but I think that may be due to some later changes in the program. Maybe next year they will have a blog, so that late changes can be listed easily!

  1. Hi Des and others,

    The Ballina event event went off really well, pity we were too busy to enjoy the food. I think everybody there really gained some vital information to help establish an online presence for their business and the two sessions complemented each other well. See you in a few weeks at the Byron breakfast for round two of this event. Wonder if we will get some refreshments there….? And I owe you a drink!

    PS I have published my powerpoint on my site

    I will put a link to this BLOG there as well.
