The Power of Persistence - When The Going Gets Tough Women Get Innovative

Aimee Engelmann - Award Winning Entrepreneur and Founder of Beepo Pty Ltd

Aimee Engelman, Beepo Pty LtdTake it from a woman who has had her back against the wall, if you want your small business to survive 2017 it's vital that you look outside the square for ideas that will help your business to stay afloat.

If you are an entrepreneur or run your own small business, sending repetitive and tedious tasks offshore is one idea that has the potential to save you thousands of dollars, not to mention your precious time.

Think about all those tasks that burden you or current staff, if you are lucky enough to have some. They're the tasks that stop your small business from achieving real prosperity.

Brisbane based, Aimee Engelmann saved her struggling business and turned it around by hiring offshore tertiary-educated professionals from a low-cost labour market. It proved a game-changer for her marketing business.

Over lunch, Aimee will share the challenges her business was facing, and she'll cover what action she took and how you can easily follow her lead.

The fact is that employment, staffing and what small business owners need to do to survive is rapidly changing.  Businesses both large and small are transitioning to offshore staff in order to improve margins and future-proof their operations.

No business is too small to use offshore staff. When starting a new business, many women will remain in full-time employment and use offshore staff to run the back office process of their new enterprise. This concept offers women the security of a wage whilst building their small business to a point where it can support them them finanically - it's smart thinking really.

According to IBISWorld a whopping 25% of all outsourcing revenue generated in Australia now comes from small and medium businesses.

Join us for lunch and discover how you could double productivity output whilst cutting the costs of running your business.
