What past participants have said:
Cbrin is a environment where you can join with others, facing similar issues, across a wide variety of industries. Often, your problem can, or has been, solved somewhere by someone through their experience. Also having facilitators that have have first hand experience in business building is very valuable
Taking time away from my desk to concentrate on strategy has been something I’ve been meaning to do for years… but it inevitably never happens. Thank you, CBRIN, for forcing me to step away from the day-to-day to think about the big picture for two whole days. I’ve left the workshop with a plethora of future business plans and an exciting new To Do list.
This will transform the way you look at your business. This accelerator provides the dynamic for you to challenge yourself and your business, form relationships with other like-minded small businesses, and come out stronger on the other side. A well spent two days thinking strategically and overcoming challenges with an intelligent group of individuals. You’re not alone!
Everyone was great. The CBRIN facilitators/presenters and panel members were personable, knowledgeable, genuine and down to earth. I learnt something from everyone.
If you’re eager to grow your business capability then this is the program for you!
Great panels and facilitators with real world experience and a good introduction to the ACT landscape.
We were able to quickly achieve mutual trust and respect enabling us to pose and resolve problems together. Teaching new methods to established business operators runs the risk of rejection (know it all already, tried it before and failed etc). It is a credit to the organisers that participants really did gain new knowledge and perspectives including me! It was also terrific fun!
The event was great the participants were all keen and focused to share straight away. The facilitators where really responsive and engaged, with amazing energy. It was also really great to see how innovative and creative business’ are in our region.
It is a great opportunity to meet others in similar situations and network with peers you might not otherwise get to meet.
The SME-22 workshop brought together a challenging cross-section of participants who were already established in business – some successfully for many years. This creates a totally different dynamic in the room compared with new businesses or startups.
A great opportunity to network with other local businesses and to take the opportunity to get outside of your day-to-day running and focus on working on the business instead of in it.
The CBRIN staff did an amazing job making us feel supported, connecting us with other amazing business leaders, while also pushing us to imagine and solve the challenges of business growth.
