National Growth Summit 2011 – Is Your Business Connected?

On February 14th, when many people will be sending Valentine’s Day cards and booking romantic dinners, I will be winging my way down to Sydney to indulge another of my passions (sorry hubby!), namely business learning and networking at the Business Connect National Growth Summit for 2011.

Publicity Queen is the PR Partner for Business Connect, and I just can’t wait to get together with like-minded growth businesses, to get the very latest business thinking, and learn how to apply it to my own business.

Regular readers of our Queentessentials e-news (click here if you would like to subscribe – like all of the best things in life, it is FREE!) will recall that in our February edition, we featured Liz Wiseman, the author of the renowned business must-read Multipliers; and Tom Peters, the author of The Little Big Things – 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence. I’m very excited because both of these business gurus will be speaking at the National Growth Summit and sharing their priceless expertise.

I find the annual Growth Summit to be ‘mission-critical’ for Publicity Queen because it’s an amazing opportunity (to hang-out with other entrepreneurs) and learn the latest buzz about strategic leadership and how that can be practically implemented in your company to drive growth – SUPERBLY VALUABLE!  OK, here’s some anecdotal evidence – after first attending my first Growth Summit way back in 2008, I applied a few of the techniques that I learned at the summit and through those improvements, I was able to grow Publicity Queen by 65% that year!  Happy Days! 

The other serious consideration for me though is that PR is only truly successful when it’s linked into an organisation’s business strategy – so for us here at PQ, we like to be fully conversant with the strategies and business thinking that are proving to drive the best results around the world.

So, I will be there with my PR bells on (you’ll be able to spot me at 50 paces as I’ll have red on! – sadly no tiara!) and I encourage you to register for this business-changing event – and of course to come and introduce yourself so that we can have a chat over a coffee (or wine!) .
