*Meet the Team* Liz has been managing the Small Business Smart Business program at the Geelong Chamber of Commerce for the past five years. Small Business Smart Business is an initiative of the Geelong Chamber of Commerce and offers mentors and a range of other assistance to businesses in the region. Liz is at the Chamber one day a week and has had her own business for the past nine years helping people start their business, better understand their customers’ needs and develop solutions to better meet these needs. Before this, Liz worked in senior management roles across strategy, marketing, communications, innovation, stakeholder management and finance. When Liz isn’t working, she’s spending time with her family, playing with her ponies, in the garden, enjoying a good book, or creating something to give away or sell. Make sure you reach out to Liz if you have any questions about starting a business, or where to get help in the region to get inspiration and grow your business.
