This July, the Council of Small Business of Australia (COSBOA) will host the premier policy event for small business representatives, government and industry leaders in Brisbane – the Vodafone National Small Business Summit.

Key themes for the 14th Annual Summit include people, policy and power. In an election year, the Summit will ensure that the voice of small business is heard and safeguard this community of more than 3 million small businesses, making sure the needs of small business people are front and centre.

Delegates will join the event to exchange ideas, shape policy and discuss how the interests of small business are represented in Australia, to ensure economic growth. This once-a-year event is the best opportunity for leaders in the small business community to connect with decision makers and key influencers, such as the newly created office of the Small Business & Family Enterprise Ombudsman and Fair Work Ombudsman.

Peter Strong, Chief Executive Officer, COSBOA says, “Every year the Summit brings together a community of business and policy experts and key decision makers to confront the key issues impacting small business. This year, I encourage you to get involved: join in the debates; let people know what you think and have an impact on the social fabric and economic future of Australia.”
