THiNK!TANKs For Small Business Owners

Swimming with fresh ideas for your business.
Trial one this November
Avalon, Newport, Bayview, Warriewood or Collaroy

Tired of going it alone? Have bigger dreams for 2017? No small business owner should feel tired or alone any longer! Pittwater Business’s new THiNK!TANKS are swimming with fresh ideas for your small business. Trial one in November and set yourself up with peer support for 2017.

More and more small business owners are finding support and great ideas by joining Pittwater Business’s local THiNK!TANKS and gaining a fresh perspective to the way they work.  The THiNK!TANK sessions are at the heart of PBL’s support for its members and are proving to be a big hit with small business owners who are tired of figuring everything out on their own!

What’s involved?

Up to six small-business owners meet in each group, once a month for two hours to discuss issues they’d like to resolve, brainstorm ideas and celebrate their wins under the guidance of a trained PBL facilitator. Sessions are held from February to November each year.

The group shares their professional experiences and provides their views on the issues, challenges or opportunities that are raised. The emphasis is on business growth and encouraging each other to be creative in solving problems and being supportive and accountable for delivering on their ideas.

The Benefits

Growing your business, feeling supported, having fun, finding creative solutions and new perspectives, making new contacts and holding each other accountable as peers.

Who can Join?

THiNK!TANKS are for any small business owner on the Peninsula and the first trial session is free. If you like what you experience, then all subsequent sessions are complimentary on joining PBL as a Premium member for just $140 p.a.
