(Gold Coast, x February 2021) Today, the Small Business Association of Australia (SBAA) announced that Australia’s largest workplace relations advisor Employsure will sponsor the 2021 International Small Business Summit on the Gold Coast on Thursday, 10 and Friday, 11 June 2021 on Queensland’s Gold Coast. 

With almost 1,000 employees, Employsure will sponsor the sessions at the summit focussed on industrial relations issues and reform. 

Employsure is also a long-term supporter of the SBAA and is a vital member of the peak body’s Small Business Think Tank that concentrates on research, education, policy, and practice in the field of small to medium enterprises. 

Ms Anne Nalder, Founder & CEO of SBAA, said she was delighted the relationship with Employsure will be extended to include the Summit. 

“Employsure is one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest providers of workplace relations advice, delivering a range of services to over 28,000 small businesses across both countries. 

“As a member of our Thinktank for several years now, Employsure has demonstrated its dedication to getting a better deal for SMEs and helping businesses connect, grow and prosper. 

“In several collaborations including a submission addressing the impact of unfair dismissal laws on SMEs, our organisations have acted as a combined voice to government and worked together on developing better workplace policies for SMEs.”

Mr Ed Mallett, Founder and Managing Director of Employsure, said, “Employsure is proud to be sponsoring the Small Business Association of Australia’s International Small Business Summit. As a workplace relations advisor to more than 28,000 small to medium-sized enterprises, Employsure understands how integral small business is to communities across the country.

“After seeing how small businesses have suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic, we must all come together to help support the backbone of the Australian economy. Now more than ever it is important for employers to be given a voice.

“Employsure hopes its involvement in the International Small Business Summit will help bring the ideas of more small businesses into the public eye, to help them shape our country into something we can all be proud of as we work towards a better and brighter future.”

The International Small Business Summit will be held at Sea World Resort and Conference Centre, Main Beach, Gold Coast. It will bring together small business owners with academia, crucial global government, regulatory and peak industry bodies, plus significant multinational companies such as Employsure.

The Summit is a two-day high-level event for policymakers, academics, governments, international representatives, small and large businesses, and business peak bodies. Delegates can attend the Summit in person or virtually due to global border closures. 

The Summit will address a broad range of topics, including finance, industrial relations, education & training, taxation, and manufacturing, with academia, government, and business presentations. 

Tickets to the Summit and Gala Dinner are available now and to join the conversation at 2021 International Small Business Summit, please go to https://smallbusinessassociation.com.au/events/sbaa-international-small-business-summit-2021/
