Exclusive Melbourne Event with Mark Bouris!

 

Yellow Brick Road has announced that Mark Bouris will host his “Secrets to Business Success” Seminar in Melbourne for the very first time. The event will be held on Thursday 13th September 2012 at 8am at the Sebel Albert Park and will offer business owners, managers and entrepreneurs advice and tips on how to operate and grow their businesses in today’s challenging economic landscape.

“There are 2.7 million small businesses in Australia who don’t have the advice, support or resources that they need to operate to their full potential,” says Bouris. “We’ve created this seminar because every business, no matter what industry they’re in, needs someone who is going to ask them the tough questions. Business owners are convinced they know what’s best, but in reality they are spending more time working in their business than working on it. Yellow Brick Road is taking the underserviced and undervalued small business segment on because we want to work with people who are looking to prosper in a tough economy. To do that, they need the right advice – and that’s where we come in.”

Bouris created his wealth management company, Yellow Brick Road, in order to make quality financial advice available to all Australians. Through its network of over 125 community-based branches, Yellow Brick Road delivers products and services for loans, financial planning, superannuation, insurance, investments, accounting and tax. The company has seen a significant increase in activity from its small to medium enterprise (SME) clients, with business owners seeking advice on funding, cash flow management, business protection and appropriate structuring.

“SME’s are the engine room of this country, and yet no one is prepared to sit down and ask them the difficult questions that will help them to succeed,” says Bouris. “Advice isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity, and because businesses don’t think they need or can afford the right advice, they try to do it all themselves. What  business owners need is someone to critically analyse their situation, tell them what they don’t want to hear, and then work with them to create a plan so they can hit their numbers, achieve their goals, and grow their enterprise. This seminar will give business owners the tools to take that first step.”

While the “Secrets to Business Success” Seminar will offer business owners valuable insight into building and managing their enterprise, it has also been designed for entrepreneurs thinking about starting a business and for people who want to perform more effectively in their current roles. The seminar will also speak to consumers looking to broaden their understanding of the current economic environment and to better understand what’s in store for the financial future of Australia.

Seminar speakers include:

  • Mark Bouris: Leading Businessman, Finance Expert & Host of The Celebrity Apprentice
  • Alex Joiner: Australian Economist & Financial Markets Specialist
  • Brad Seymour: Marketing & Brand Development Expert
  • Louise Lakomy: Financial Planning & Future Proofing Professional
  • Scott Maclean: Business Coach & Sales Specialist
  • Andrew Morello: Business Development Expert & Winner of The Apprentice Australia
