The Rotary Club of Ringwood: Business Seminar – understanding the local economy

The Rotary Club of Ringwood is one of several clubs that is developing a pilot program for Corporate Membership.  The program aims to connect Rotary with the next generation of business owners and leaders.

This evening the Rotary Club of Ringwood held its second business seminar where attendees heard from Phil Turner, the Director of City Development and Chris Zidak, Manager of Business Development.

Phil and Chris discussed upcoming projects and development within Ringwood and Maroondah.  The discussion explored the current pace of residential and commercial development, as well as initiatives undertaken by Council such as the redevelopment of Ringwood Library and the Ringwood Aquatic Centre.

The Rotary Club of Ringwood’s Business Seminars are designed to provide topics that are relevant to the needs of the business community, while also highlighting Rotary’s core concepts; service to the community, professional development and networking.

The Rotary Club of Ringwood will be holding specific Business Seminars on a monthly basis.

    We would love for you and your team attend this event to find out more about who we are and how we can help your organisation tap into the range of government subsidies available and assist to boost local jobs in the region. There will also be the opportunity for some large and local business networking. Please see below or the attached the flyer for our “Jump Start” Breakfast with all the details.

    I would also like for any employers you know attend this event as well.

    I will be there on the day and look forward to meeting with you.

    If you could email or call me with your RSVP by April 14th for catering purposes that would be fantastic.
