Business SA's Regional Voice forum is coming back to the Barossa, this time bringing new chief executive, former Lord Mayor and business owner Martin Haese, to meet business owners and operators to discuss issues affecting local operations.

Business SA is taking Regional Voice to the heart of the Barossa Valley community, by hosting a forum at Chateau Yaldara, at Lyndoch on Tuesday 22 October.

Attendees will hear from Mr Haese, along with the Small Business Commissioner John Chapman and Senior Policy Adviser Estha Van Der Linden, who will talk about business confidence in the wake of the land tax debate and other issues.

"We know owners and operators are also looking to us at Business SA for tips on how to improve their operations and take a great leap forward, and that's why we're also bringing along CQR cyber security expert Greg Starkey, who is going to talk about how to ensure your business is better prepared for IT attacks and disaster resilience," Mr Haese said.

"Regional owners and decision-makers also want to discuss the issues affecting their patch, find potential solutions to crippling energy costs, and hear about the programs we offer which can give their businesses a boost or a competitive advantage."

The Regional Voice forum aims to bring business owners and decision-makers together to network, pick up some tips on better business and discuss local issues.

The forum will also hear from EML account manager Jodie Bischoff about helping employees return to work after injury, and Chateau Yaldara 1847 Wines general manager Anthony Grundel.

The Regional Voice event is an opportunity to learn from industry experts, connect with innovative professionals and like-minded entrepreneurs while expanding networks and creating worthwhile business opportunities.

Business SA's Regional Voice Barossa Valley event is free and includes drinks and nibbles.

Regional Voice Barossa Valley will be held on Tuesday 22 October, 2019, at Chateau Yaldara 1847 Wines, 159 Hermann Thumm Drive, Lyndoch, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
