The first Joint Logan Office of Economic Development and Combined Logan Chambers of Commerce event for 2019 is going to be held on the 6th of February 2019 and we’d love you to join us.

We are excited to let you know that our special guest speak for this event is Robert Gerrish (founder of Flying Solo).

Check out a video that Robert has prepared about the event HERE

Bio – Robert Gerrish

Following a career in the marketing and design industry in London and Sydney, Robert made the leap to his own business in the mid 1990s.

Seeing a niche in the area of support and resources aimed at the ‘one-person business’, Robert launched the Flying Solo community in 2005.

With a small team, he grew the business to a member base of over 100,000 Australian freelancers and entrepreneurs, before selling to Pinstripe Media at the end of last year.

Back working solo, today Robert pops up regularly at conferences and events; supports individuals in the development of their ventures, and hosts a series of podcasts including: “The Business of Bookkeeping” (for First Class Accounts), “The Flying Solo Podcast” and his own “Mellow Brick Road” a new show that explores creative approaches to business.

His first book, “Flying Solo: How to go it alone in business” was a business bestseller and his latest, “The 1-Minute Commute“ was published by Pan Macmillan in late 2018.

Topic – Make 2019 your most productive year yet

In his presentation, Robert will look at one of the key challenges we face in business and what we can do to improve things. Overwhelm is a growing burden for so many small businesses, with so much coming at us, all day, every day. As we hurtle into a New Year, now is the best time to consider a better way of working. Particular themes covered will include:

  • Recognising what keeps you awake at nights and why

  • The power of creating a picture of where you’re going

  • Knowing what steals your time and how to fix the leak

  • How to involve stakeholders, friends and family

  • Finding the source of your best ideas

  • Embracing the concept of ‘Lazy Leadership’

  • Keeping worries at bay

Full of practical tips and insights, Robert’s talk will leave you with actionable steps to get more done in less time.
