Meet the NSW Small Business Commissioner

New South Wales’ first Small Business Commissioner will tour regional areas of the state this month, to meet with small business owners and operators and learn how she can advocate on their behalf.

Yasmin King will kick off her regional listening tour Giving Small Business a Big Say on 19 October.

“In order to be an independent voice and advocate for small businesses in this State, I am committed to getting out of Sydney’s CBD and visiting both rural and regional towns to speak directly with small business owners,” King said.

She hopes to hear about the challengers, rewards, highs and lows of running a business in NSW.

“During this trip, I want business owners to tell me how I can best represent them and what changes need to be made to ensure their growth in what is a competitive and challenging marketplace.”

King will visit locations including Grafton, Lismore, Ballina, Albury, Wagga, Gunnedah, Orange and Bathurst and all events will be hosted by the NSW Business Chamber.

King is inviting all small business owners and operators to attend these free events.

“This listening tour is a vital part of my vision for the Office of the Small Business Commissioner. NSW has some of Australia’s most dedicated and dynamic small business operators and it’s important that I visit their turf to meet with them and get a better understanding of the variety of issues

affecting small businesses in different parts of the State,” King added.
