Small Business Commissioner Here to Help

February 11, 2021

Queensland Small Business Commissioner, Maree Adshead, is the special guest speaker at Mark Ryan’s next Small Business Network Coffee Catch Up.

Ms Adshead will join State Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan and about 100 local business representatives for the early morning networking session at the Caboolture Sports Club on Friday, 12 March.

“We’re very excited to kick off 2021 in style, with the Small Business Commissioner as our special guest,” Mark Ryan enthused.

“The Palaszczuk Government established the Small Business Commissioner’s office to assist businesses with the challenges brought about by COVID-19, and to help economic growth in Queensland.

“I’m sure Ms Adshead will have plenty of good advice for our local businesses.”

The Small Business Commissioner has been able to assist many hundreds of businesses over the past nine months, and Ms Adshead said she is interested to hear from local businesses on how her office can help them through these challenging times.

“Since being established in May last year, my office has assisted thousands of small business owners with navigating the information and support they needed,” she said.

“We have also received over 670 small business lease disputes (including COVID rent reduction negotiations) and have been able to help resolve 76% of them.

“I look forward to attending this networking event and hope to hear feedback on how small businesses can be best supported going forward.”

Since its inception three years ago, Mark Ryan’s Small Business Network has developed into a wonderful networking platform for business owners and managers from across the Caboolture/Morayfield region.

Each event also supports a nominated local charity, with gold coin donations from attendees. This month funds raised will go to Caboolture Community Action.
