Message from the Chair

Thank you to everyone that supported the Confederation last year by attending one of our monthly business networking events.

These events had speakers presenting on a range of topics from Psychosocial Risk Management, Consumer Trends, Tasmanian Startups, and Sound HR Practices.

Our events are a chance to connect with people in the Greater Hobart area, discuss local issues, share advice, and offer support.

Chair, Confederation of Greater Hobart Business
