Griffith business event a sell-out


Griffith City Council has held a highly successful, sold-out Business Planning & Strategic Thinking event.

The workshop, featuring Rebecca Crombie from Crombie Accounting, provided 40 participants with valuable tools and knowledge to kick-start their own business plans.

Council says the majority of attendees were new to business planning, with only one having prior experience.

Rebecca expertly guided the group through a comprehensive Business Plan template. She used relatable examples and facilitated engaging breakout sessions to ensure a hands-on learning experience. She highlighted the importance of business plans as vital tools for future benchmarking, focusing objectives, and identifying areas for improvement. She also emphasised that business plans should be regularly reviewed to ensure business decisions align with the established goals and vision.

Council’s Economic Development Coordinator, Karly Sivewright welcomed attendees and
reinforced Council’s commitment to supporting local businesses.

“We were thrilled to see such a strong turnout and high level of engagement from our local
business community,” said Mrs Sivewright.

“Our Economic Development department is here to support businesses at every step of their journey, providing the resources and guidance needed to succeed.”

A range of resources and assistance is available through Council’s Economic Development
