On Wednesday 24th April at Table 28 in West Perth BDA took the opportunity to thank the sponsors for their support at this years event. A discussion took place regarding the day and feedback we recieved from golf day attendees to make the day even better next year.
The breakfast was a great success and was concluded when we proudly passed on a cheque for the amount of $1,443 to Ron Conway from Make a Difference Foundation WA.

Our guest columnist, Kirstin Stewart, Director of Business Services for HLB Mann Judd, gives her view on how the Federal Budget will effect you over the next 12 months.
Treasurer Wayne Swan announced the Labor Government’s Federal Budget for 2013/14 last night. But is this budget ‘stronger, smarter and fairer’ like it claims to be? As always, it will depend on what camp you’re in. The budget estimates a cash deficit of $18billion for the 2013/14 year, and estimated to ‘return to balance’ in 2015/16. Whilst one side of the budget focuses on where the nation’s funds will be spent – the winners being DisabilityCare Australia (formerly known as the National Disability Insurance Scheme), infrastructure and education; on the other side is the question of how these proposals will be funded? The answer is change to superannuation, business and personal taxation. In an election year, there is some doubt that the proposals put forth in the budget will take effect if the Liberal Party win the election in September.
So how will this affect you from a taxation perspective?Uncategorized | Leave a comment
As an owner of a creative company that, for 17 years has been successfully and extensively been dealing with, creating and being the custodian of brands, a recurring question I am asked is “Branding. How important is it and should I rebrand my business?”.
You don’t really have to go much further to seek evidence that branding is extremely important than to look at two of the best mistos of marketing over the last two decades – Steve Jobs and Sir Richard Branson. Both these men not only understood the importance, they have natural talent in the building and driving of a brand. Without the emphasis of branding no doubt they would have been very successful businessmen anyway, but through living their brand, the brands themselves have taken on their own personality, and that personality and culture is adopted the world over by the loyal brand consumers who love those brands.

A smooth running franchise business takes all the same preparation as to win gold in the 100m men’s final. You need to plan ahead, train everyday and become mentally tough enough to handle any situation that presents itself.
It’s never too early to prepare for the future. You should always have a current business plan and exit plan. As the old saying goes ‘if you fail to plan, you plan to fail’ and in effect you will go nowhere. Continue reading →Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

However, businesses using social media channels have a responsibility to ensure content in these channels is accurate, irrespective of who put it there.Uncategorized | Leave a comment

- ‘Who gave you these projections?’
- ‘What do you mean you have assigned your lease already?’
