2019 Redcliffe Chamber Review

Nov 23, 2019
2019 Redcliffe Chamber Review
This year has been another incredible year for the RPCC. With 26 events attended by over 1300 local business owners and members of our community, we have taken some quantum leaps towards our long-term vision of “The Redcliffe Peninsula is Queensland’s Number 1 Place to Combine Lifestyle and Business”.

Our local businesses input millions of dollars into our community's economic circulation and dozens of jobs are created. The chamber creates connections and collaborations and we are committed to continuing our growth, evolution and support for our community through business in 2020. Some of our highlights include:

Our partnership with Redcliffe State High School for the Business breakfast series, where we hosted guest speakers including:

Don Meij the Global CEO of Dominos;

Shane Webcke – Former Brisbane Bronco and Channel 7 sports reader;

Hon Yvette D’Ath – Queensland Attorney General and Member for Redcliffe;

Travis Bell – The world's Number 1 Bucket List Expert.

A 'Meet the Candidates' event for the federal election, with over 130 attendees.

The monthly Belvedere Business Mingle, with great connections and views.

Our regular monthly event with high quality speakers, including Phillip DiBella, the founder of DiBella Coffee.

The Scarborough Futures Exhibition, through our partnership with the Moreton Maritime Alliance, and the launch of the Moreton Bay Strategy around creating a global class maritime precinct.

If you are a local business owner, school, not-for-profit organisation or someone who loves our Peninsula and wants to be part of its evolution, please come along to one of events in 2020 to find out more.

We thank the Redcliffe Guide for their amazing support and look forward to continuing to work with them in 2020. Merry Christmas to all.

Is your business prepared for Christmas cash flow crunch?

Christmas is seen by most people as a wonderful time for celebrations. For a small business owner, it can be very stressful. With the high number of public and staff holidays, the number of available trading days and resources is significantly reduced, whilst the rent and other bills still have to be paid.

So how do you make sure you are prepared?

Prepare a quick cash flow projection, week by week, from now until the end of January 2020, for money that you think will come in and what will be going out, based on your best guess at this point.

Set aside extra cash now, where possible, to cover expenses during the break.

Negotiate with suppliers, landlords and the ATO to suspend payments until after Christmas, when cash flow improves.

This period doesn’t have to be a worrying time, if you are planned and prepared for it. If you are not sure what to do, reach out and ask for help.
