Deputy Prime Minister Wayne Swan and Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott will address the COSBOA National Small Business Summit in Brisbane tomorrow.

Swan this week confirmed he will be speaking at the Gala Dinner on July 8, joining over 25 of Australia’s regulatory and political leaders and top small business entrepreneurs to help business owners understand the regulations which affect small business.

He will be sharing the political stage with Abbott, who will outline his plan for small business; Minister for Small Business, Craig Emersen; Australian taxation commissioner, Michael D’Ascenzo; ACCC deputy chairman (small business), Michael Schaper; Fair Work ombudsman, Michael Campbell; and ASIC chairman Tony D’Aloisio.

This year’s summit will showcase Australia’s leading small business entrepreneurs and business experts who will come together to share their secrets for finding and keeping customers and putting in place sound strategies to thrive in this ever changing business environment.

International guest speaker Richard Binhammer, Dell’s US expert on social media, will reveal how Dell grasped social media and turned it into a profitable business and brand building tool and how small businesses can do the same.

"We’re excited to have a roster of small business experts and entrepreneurs who are eager to share their strategies for the new economy," David Koch, host of the NSBS, says.

"The National Small Business Summit is a great opportunity to network with entrepreneurs and business owners converging from all over Australia and take home some great ideas and connections to boost your business," Koch adds.

The event is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 7.30am tomorrow.
