Business View Magazine – Winter 2013
In this edition, we delve into the experiences of finance commentator turned business builder Alan Kohler, detail bringing an invention to life and explore running a business in an extreme climate. We also cover retaining staff, handling tax in your SMSF and negotiating contracts in China.
As the world changes around you, it’s important to change with it. While global and local conditions are still quite volatile, a number of SMEs are successfully adjusting to structural change. There’s a remarkable resilience among many small business owners; while some are fairly conservative, they’re remaining focused on the longer term and on implementing change when they need to. We encourage all business owners to keep evolving and investing for the future, and we’re keen to be part of the process to help you identify the best way to realise the potential going forward.
In the winter edition of Business View, we’re offering you a whole new look and feel. New sections, including a regular page for importers, a resources section and a column from NAB’s Group Chief Economist, Alan Oster, will provide real building blocks for business owners.
Our features section provides the same level of insight as always, delving into the experiences of finance commentator turned business builder Alan Kohler, detailing how John Cross brought an invention to life and exploring how Ethnic Business Award winner Yvonne Bradley runs a business in an extreme climate.
We also cover such diverse but important issues as retaining staff, handling tax in your self managed super fund, managing the stresses that often come with managing your business and negotiating contracts in china.
