Empowering Smaller Business in Greater Hobart
Advocacy Action Access

Our Vision

To be the independent voice for Small to Medium Business within the bounds of Greater Hobart covering 7 councils – Hobart, Kingborough, Glenorchy, Brighton, Clarence, Derwent Valley and Sorell.

We will contribute to creating and maintaining the best environment for small business to be able to both start and flourish within the Greater Hobart Locale.

We will create a functional system within which small to medium businesses can collaborate and air their opinions and issues regarding their local environment with a view to establish healthy discussion and outcomes for the greater good of the community.

We intend to  strengthen and improve resilience of the small business sector for all the business community.

Our Objectives

To provide advocacy and lobbying on behalf of members to Local and State Governments. To learn of and speak to the issues and limitations small businesses face with a view to promoting positive change. A good advocate is one that is heard, that is prepared to step up and speak the difficult message to local and State Government. The Confederation of Greater Hobart Business Ltd will utilise the political and news cycles, will be visible regularly in the media and contribute regularly to social media. It is expected that we will contribute to formation of policy relevant to small business function.

We will be hosting monthly face-to-face networking events, distributing a monthly newsletter and regular informative webinars. 

To obtain information on local issues and ideas from members by either direct communication or regular short surveys. We want to ensure there is a direct link between the information supplied from the members to what is represented to both the media as well as State and Local Government.
