It’s five months since Australia elected a new government and more than ten percent into their term we are yet to be presented a business narrative, especially a narrative that speaks to small business owners, the group that employs more Australians than any other.
The narrative is vital to encouraging optimism and optimism feed into hiring, stocking and other business planning decisions.
Even in tough economic circumstances where a government is chasing a sizeable defect and finds itself in a global economic challenge a narrative that encourages and supports small business is possible. It all comes down to leadership.
In this climate is an extraordinary manufacturing downturn, we in small business and the whole country need leadership in the from of a narrative we can believe, a narrative on which we can build a future.
