Australia Post Regional Pitchfest is the Platform for Regional Business Ideas and Innovation, and we need to get behind this amazing program and even more amazing people behind the ideas and businesses involved!
Recently I learnt about the 2017 Australia Post Regional Pitchfest Program and got really excited. Managing a network of Regional Women in Business who have incredible ideas, businesses and are some of the most creative and innovative people I know, this was just perfect and a fitting resource for the women. Before I sent the program information out to the database and encouraged everyone to take part, Stefani, one of the women running the program asked me if I was going to enter. To be honest, the thought hadn't crossed my mind and I was mostly excited to communicate the amazing opportunity to my network. Then I realised, I wasn't exactly leading by example and that it would be a good idea to get involved and take the Geelong community with me on my journey in hopes that they will have the confidence to enter next year, or join me this year knowing that if I can do it, they can do it.
I have now completed my application with only the 60 second video to record and submit. The process was so simple and to my surprise, eye-opening. It forced me to face questions in my business that were crucial to it's success, direction and to be able to communicate the "why" of Geelong Women in Business. It has inspired me and given me the motivation to take Geelong Women to another level. If anything, I would strongly suggest anyone with a business to go through the application process just for that! Even better, go all the way and submit. The programs, resources and facilities that come with the program are fantastic, not to mention all of the people you will meet on the journey.
The Application Date has been extended to Sunday night, so get online and apply now! You've got nothing to lose https://regionalpitchfest.com/
