60 seconds to pitch your business - June edition

Every month at our the South Australian Business Chamber Chamber Networking event, 4 members get the opportunity to pitch their businesses to attendees. The catch is, they only have 60 seconds to do so. 

At our recent event at the Tonsley Innovation Precinct, 4 members expertly articulated what’s unique about their business, and told us what we needed to know, without going over the time limit. 

Our June Chamber Pitches had the unique benefit of some sideline coaching by Tom Hendrick, Director of the South Australian Business Chamber member Talent Academy, an award-winning public speaking training business.

Tom ensured that 60-second pitch participants articulated clearly defined value propositions using plain, clear language that engaged the audience.

Andrew Kamphaug from Mitsubishi Motors Australia posed the question How did you get here tonight, how will you get home, and what will you need tomorrow”. 

Whether you are requiring mobility or transport, whether you want to be outlandish or are seeking adventure, economy or thinking about the environment, Andrew told the story of what’s on offer from Mitsubishi Motors, from the heartland of the company in South Australia in the site of its former manufacturing facility at Tonsley.

Graham Burfield of Burfield & Associates thinks many people pay too much tax. 

Graham believes business owners need to understand successful businesses don’t have tax problems, they have cashflow management problems.

Burfield & Associates clients don’t have these sorts of problems, they work with clients on an ongoing basis to ensure no more tax is paid than absolutely necessary.
