The recent business networking event at the Dove & Olive Hotel was hugely successful with updates from the City of Sydney and details of the 2018 Surry Hills festival announced.
The Surry Hills Creative Precinct holds the salon events to encourage informal networking and conversation between local businesses and neighbourhood bodies, as well as invite spokespeople from Transport for NSW and City of Sydney to take part in the conversation and share information and updates.
On May 21 The Dove and Olive opened its upstairs saloon to the Precinct. The special guest of the evening was City of Sydney representative and City Business Manager Lara Wolski, who delivered the presentation: “365 Days of Local Economy: Driving Awareness of the City’s Local Villages Year-Round.”
Local businesses are encouraged to get involved in this initiative, by using the hashtag #SydneyLocal for a chance to be featured on City of Sydney’s social media accounts.
The City of Sydney has also launched a new Digital 101 Series, bringing tech-savvy experts to help city businesses promote themselves online through social channels. The seminar series is specifically designed to up skill small business owners in digital and social media, and to build their knowledge of the key platforms that will help them thrive online.
The next sessions are:
- 25 July – Create a thriving online community and generate sales using Instagram
- 26 September – Learn to use digital channels to promote and sell to Chinese consumers.
