At the next Enterprise Tuesday event on Tuesday 25 August from 4-6pm at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Innovation Centre, Annette will provide practical information and tips for new and emerging businesses.
For those who have a great business idea but are unsure where to begin, Annette will present her ‘Symply too good to be true’ success story. Annette commented “the reason I’m sharing my story is to show that with the right attitude you can achieve anything”.
Annette added “turning an idea into a business can be daunting, I’ve learnt many lessons along the way and want to inspire others to take their dream and create a business”
Annette is an acclaimed, multi-award winning businesswoman and entrepreneur, having won, among many other accolades, the Telstra Australian Government and Queensland Government Micro Business of the Year Awards in 2004.
Colin Graham, Innovation Centre CEO, commented “Annette Sym is a great example of a local entrepreneur and successful businesswoman. Her case study can offer practical insights for emerging entrepreneurs on how to start a business”
This event is the first of the final three Enterprise Tuesdays for the second semester of 2009 and is open to local entrepreneurs, business owners and USC staff and students.
Enterprise Tuesday, inspired by a program of the same name at the University of Cambridge, is free to attend and includes a presentation by a successful entrepreneur to inspire entrepreneurship in the local community.
Enterprise Tuesday is also a great opportunity to meet and network with like-minded business owners, start-up company directors and emerging entrepreneurs.
These events are an initiative of the Enterprise Program run by the Innovation Centre in collaboration with USC. As part of this program, the University’s Faculty of Business now offers an Entrepreneurship Minor comprising of four courses for students interested in starting their own business.
The Innovation Centre’s 2009 Enterprise Tuesday series is proudly sponsored by Westpac.
