Luke MyallI think October Business Month is a great initiative by the NT Government and the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation. It offers something for all business people in the community no matter what level of business acumen attendees have. Being part of the Territory business success story project was a proud moment for myself and my family. It is important to hear real stories from real Territorian’s about their journey through the business world and how they were able to succeed. I hope the business community connected with the story tellers and walked away with some useful insight or business a tip. If only one person from the NT business community walked away from each presentation having a light bulb moment on an area to improve their business, then I think it was all worth it.

Having the opportunity to tell my story was also great for my own professional development. Sometimes as leaders and business owners we don’t take the time to pause and reflect on what we have actually achieved. If our journey inspires others then that can only be a good thing for the business community and the Northern Territory.

Thank you to the NT Government and especially the staff from October Business Month for putting on such a great number of events. This is a very important way for Territory businesses to keep learning, upskilling and improving their knowledge especially with the opportunity in the future that the NT has to offer. The support for business that the NT Government gives is outstanding and I congratulate them for it. Any business should be looking at the Upskills program to assist them in growth and sustainability. Thank you once again for allowing us to tell our story and be involved with the October Business Month.
