A line-up of four inspirational entrepreneurs will feature in a “discussion panel with a difference” at the Hinchinbrook Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Tourism’s AGM next week.

The unique panel of successful business owners and respected, motivational identities will share how they embraced their individuality and were empowered by authenticity to become successful in the modern marketplace.

Outgoing Hinchinbrook Chamber President Rachael Coco said that it was important in an ever-evolving world, dominated by technology and change, that existing and emerging business owners discovered and celebrated their point of difference.

“The Hinchinbrook business community is made up of businesses who march to the beat of their own drums, who strive to innovate and adapt, and that’s the message that we need to share with the world if we’re going to put our shire on the map” said Ms Coco.

“This panel is made up of entrepreneurs from different backgrounds and industries, but what they’ve all got in common is that they’ve leveraged their point of difference to define their businesses and carve out a niche in their respective industries” she said.

Speakers will include:

Transformational coach and leadership consultant Kylie Bartlett, the brainchild behind Women of Achievement events and Lead.Love.Leap, which focuses on mindfulness, leadership programs and workshop facilitation;
