Change is nothing new. We have always had change and welcomed it.
It signifies growth and possibility. It enables us to adapt and thrive.
It’s just that in a surfeit of change it can all start to feel just a tad overwhelming, tiring and tedious. What matters is knowing which change is worth going for and knowing we are supported in our endeavours to build better communities through small business.
Fear of change is what stops us in our tracks. Leading effective change is all about knowing how to break down the sticky walls of change resistance and changing our perspective.
It’s about creating awareness in our community. Educating small business owners in the resources that are available to them as they grow and thrive in our regional economies.
We’re passionate about Australian businesses and the positive contribution they make to the economy. We’re even more passionate about nurturing and growing small business in the North East Victoria and Riverina regions.
We invite you to play an integral part in the success of this exciting and inspiring conference.
The PIV8 Conference concept came about after identifying an opportunity to bring a city-style conference to the thriving business community of Albury-Wodonga & Surrounds (North East Victoria & Riverina).
Our recently drought and fire struck community urgently needs medium and longer term recovery plans and a supportive, community framework to ensure our small businesses recover and continue to grow and thrive.
For this reason, the timeline for the PIV8 Conference has been brought forward 6 months to October 2020
PIV8 plans to be a one-day, annual conference and business exhibition that will constantly evolve as the needs of our local and regional business communities change and evolve.
PIV8 aims to be the premier small business event in our region; helping business owners, operators, employees and entrepreneurs build better businesses through adopting new techniques and mindsets surrounding business and life as a business owner.
Part of what makes the PIV8 conference so valuable are our six Core Values which are integral to success in modern business; Community, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Mindset, Awareness and Action. These are the key pillars and building blocks for everything that the PIV8 Conference stands to deliver.
The PIV8 Conference is run as a not for profit event, ensuring every dollar we raise in Sponsorship is injected back into the community through the use of local businesses and services.
We would love to hear from you.
