RDA Northern Rivers partnered with NBN to hold the first of a number of exclusive events with the region’s business leaders at the Coolangatta Tweed Golf Club on Thursday 10 June.

Local business leaders from small and large businesses such as Stone and Wood, AirPhysio, Clean Tea, Solo Resources and more enjoyed a chance to catch up with other high growth businesses for some valuable networking opportunities.

A highlight of the Boardroom Lunch session was a presentation from guest speaker, Andrew Bridger of AIG, who provided insight to:

  • national and local economic development
  • emerging trends and business activity post covid
  • 2021 Q1 analysis on recovery of Australia’s economy

Tim Williamson, RDA-NR Director of Regional Development, led further discussions to discover what local businesses want for the future, what we can achieve together and a future agenda for business to support the region’s economy.

“After the long period where businesses have not been active due to COVID restrictions, we found out on Thursday that these sessions are invaluable.”
