TOP TIPS FROM OUR SPEAKERS
Ross Dawson, Author and Chairman, Advanced Human Technologies - “Crowdsourcing accessing talent around the world is one of the key drivers of efficient business today. So there are a lot of possibilities but also challenges. Something you have to work with; to be able to experiment and to be able to learn how to do it well. If you do it well, you’ll be far ahead of your competitors. “
Matt Barrie, CEO, Freelancer.com - “If you have ever been thinking about starting a small business, it has never been a better time. It is has never been cheaper and it has never been easier. In today’s world, you can hire a digital workforce online to get anything you can think of done at a fraction of the cost that you’d expect to pay locally.”
Carl Hartmann, Co-founder and Managing Director, Temando - “Tips for SMEs outsourcing in freight. Firstly, there is no one perfect carrier. As much as some carriers may tell you they can do everything. It doesn’t mean they can do it cheaply and it doesn’t mean that they’ll be the best to do so for you. So, the more you can use multiple options in your model, the more you can create amazing cost savings and efficiency gains. Secondly, if you are using multiple options you need a way to hold that all together. So, the importance of using technology in your business is absolutely paramount. If you can have an easy way in which to access multiple options in the one system, you create amazing cost savings and this is what we are all about to achieve. “
Wai Hong Fong, Founder and CEO, OzHut - “Top three business tips for SMEs are: (1) Incremental change is key; do not get trapped by profession paralysis. (2) Humility is the ultimate networking tool. Never belittle anyone you meet because you never know who they know. (3) Always look at what’s in your hands because they will ultimately guide you to where you need to go next, whether it is skills, your abilities, who you know, etc., they are all really important.”
