Business growth with purpose – marketing the right way

Sustainable growth is one of the biggest challenges any business leader faces. At our May luncheon, Lois Donaldson, from Wine Selectors, will share their learnings on how they have unlocked growth in the highly competitive market of wine retailing.

This is a story of how a 40 year old Newcastle business has re-invented itself into a customer-centric organisation appealing to today’s most valuable wine enthusiasts right across Australia. It’s a story that highlights the importance of strategy before tactics and purpose before price.

During lunch you’ll also have the opportunity to taste some great Hunter wine and learn about varieties that are also achieving strong growth through re-invention becoming more relevant to today’s wine drinkers
