Following the overwhelming success of the first ‘Temora Unearthed’ event, a second evening to showcase emerging business talent in Temora will be held next Thursday, June 19th.
The event, part of Temora Business Enterprise Group’s regular “Beers n Business” connect platform, will get underway at 7pm at the Temora Hotel, all are welcome to attend.
‘Temora Unearthed’ is a direct result of the Hoskins Street ‘Prosper Initiative’, led by Temora Shire Council.
This initiative is focussed on a vibrant Hoskins Street as the centrepiece of a town prepared to meet challenges with enthusiasm and innovation.
The entrepreneurs who feature in ‘Temora Unearthed’ demonstrate this drive and determination.
The first event, held at Temora Town Tennis Club and catered by Combaning Larder, was well attended and received.
Ali Swanston, of Gypsygirl Beauty, and Renelle Harrison, from r.h.Business, spoke of how they developed their successful business models, drawing on their experiences, challenges and vision, in a question and answer format with TBEG Chairman, Michael Harper.
Their positivity, determination and ‘can do’ attitudes were inspiring for the audience, and both conveyed the importance of self-belief and not giving up in working towards their goals.
Such was the overwhelming feedback that TBEG was delighted to organise another similar evening, and next Thursday’s event will feature local entrepreneurs, Melissa Weise, of Kildary Valley, and Kim Sandgren, Inspired Health and Prosperity.
“All businesses have to start somewhere, and many successful businesses often start small. With this in mind, we want to give others the confidence to take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey,” said Mr Harper.
“Temora Unearthed’ will take us to the grass roots of real startups by creating conversations that inspire, resource and equip locals with new businesses or business ideas to take that next step.”
Prior to ‘Temora Unearthed #2,’ the TBEG Annual General Meeting will be held from 6pm, also at the Temora Hotel.
This is a great opportunity to find out more about the exciting projects of 2018 and the ways in which TBEG continues to promote and support the Shire’s business community. All welcome.

The community is also invited to come along and support local businesses at the 2018 Temora Business Awards presentation evening, to be held on Friday, July 27th, at the Temora Hotel.
There has been strong interest in the Awards, with a 50 percent increase in entries from 2017 and 16 businesses represented across the various categories.
There will also be a special presentation of the David Carruthers Memorial Award for Lifetime Achievement in Business.
Links for ticket bookings can be found on TBEG Facebook and www.tbeg.org.au . Ticket sales close July 22nd.
If not a TBEG member, now is a great time to consider joining, with a limited offer of first year membership for $100, a saving of 50 percent (available to any business that has not been a member before or for a long time).
“This is designed so that all businesses may consider supporting TBEG’s activities and to trial our value proposition,” said Mr Harper.
“A TBEG membership should not be viewed as ‘what can TBEG do for me, but rather ‘what can I do to support the future prosperity of Temora,” he said.
More members enables TBEG to be better resourced to drive even more programs and development work; and to bring even more business people together to continually bolster our local economy. Go to www.tbeg.org.au/membership .
