- mmm….coffee starts in Fremantle
Calling all freelancers, entrepreneurs and creatives!
On the last Thursday of every month (starting February 24th) between 8:30am and 9:30am at La Tropicana Cafe in Fremantle we will be having a coffee.
It’s not designed to be a hard core networking event more just a opportunity to catch up with people who work for themselves and have some good coffee. It should be a good opportunity to meet some other people who are making it happen on their own in and around Fremantle.

- Retailers network development at Think Big Communication
Tomorrow Think Big Communication is hosting (we have a big enough board room…I think) the first of many networks in Fremantle based around building co-operation and support around specific business sectors and industries.
The first network to be established is the Retailers Network which looks at how retail businesses around Fremantle can work together to create a larger market for all rather than focusing just on their individual efforts.
The first meeting is an introductory meeting that is looking at how the network will work, the objectives and what members hope to achieve from the network. There are a number of other agenda items that get down to business that will start facilitating change and co-operation.
Wednesday 11 August 2010
8:00am – 9:00am
Think Big Communication office
187 High Street Fremantle
Details are below from the City of Fremantle’s Economic Development and Marketing Team
The City’s Economic Development and Marketing team will establish a number of business networks within the Fremantle business community over the next few months.
The networks will create opportunities for business owners and/or managers trading in the same Fremantle markets to collaborate in business improvement activities by sharing knowledge, experience and marketing their business sector.
The first network to be formalised will be the Retail Business Network and you’re invited to come along to the August meeting and be actively involved in Fremantle’s retail business community and build relationships with the city.
- We joined the Small Enterprise Network…
…and if your a small business we think you should too.
Think Big Communication has joined the Chamber of Commerce and Industries Small Enterprise Network (SEN) which is a way for small business to skill up as well as maintain a voice through the broader business community and CCI.
We have already attended a number of events and are seeing the positive impact that being part of such an association will bring. There is also the opportunity to work with other small businesses on their marketing and communication strategy in order to create greater value and drive their business forward.
More about SEN
Small businesses make up over 80% of all businesses in Western Australia and are essential to the success of our State economy. But as a small business owner, you already knew that. What you may not know is that now you have a big voice, supportand networking opportunities through CCI’s newly launched WA Small Enterprise Network (SEN).
- Striving for Marketing Excellence in Western Australia
There are a number of organisations globally you can join to continue your education and professional development in the Marketing and Communication field. We have chosen to join the Australian Marketing Institute as the key ongoing development organisation through which we will attend training in order to keep at the peak of Marketing and Communication techniques and tactics for our clients.
More about the AMI
The Australian Marketing Institute’s record of service to the marketing profession goes all the way back to our origin in 1933. Over the intervening years we have continually evolved to meet the changing needs of marketers, delivering services to help members maximise their professional growth.
Today the AMI represents professional marketers throughout Australia, including practitioners from all marketing functions and industries. Through our unified voice, the Institute has established strong links with business, academia and government to become the voice of the marketing profession.
The AMI’s leadership role in advancing the marketing profession has resulted in the emergence of Certified Practising Marketer (CPM) accreditation as a practising benchmark, the establishment of a Code of Professional Conduct, and the move towards defined practising standards for marketers and marketing metrics for organisations.
Members guide the policy and priorities of the Institute through elected State Councils and a National Board of Directors, ensuring representation for every state at the national level. Branch offices in each state conduct events on topics of local interest to augment national programs.
- Bike share community strategy for Fremantle
Having only recently opened our doors in Fremantle we have been working with a number of community groups and local Entrepreneurs to provide our Marketing Strategy and Planning expertise to their projects. One that is really interesting and has some very real possibilities for change in Fremantle is Cyclefreo.
Cyclefreo is a bike sharing social enterprise for the City of Fremantle. It is quite unique in its approach to bike sharing and uses a social enterprise model to provide a sustainable service to the local community.
One of the key objectives for Cyclefreo is to engage the community and start debate around the possibilities for a community driven bike sharing program. This involved creating a platform for this conversation to take place as well as spread the message about the project to the local community.
From this we developed a comprehensive web strategy involving social networks facebook and twitter as well as ongoing updates on the Cyclefreo blog. We are pleased to announce these have all been put in place over the past month to accompany the ongoing buzz that will build due to the Public Relations campaign which will be executed for the remainder of 2010.
We will keep you up to date with our progress working with these community enterprises as there is real possibilities to create lasting change and Think Big Communication is committed to being part of this.
