Keeping the Esperance Business Community Connected
14 July 2020
The Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry is set to benefit from a new initiative launched by Horizon Power.
Vibrant Regional Businesses is a community-led investment program developed by Horizon Power in consultation with eight regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry groups. The program is aimed at supporting the post COVID-19 economic recovery of small businesses throughout regional Western Australia.
Donna Gibson, Goldfields Esperance Retail and Community Manager for Horizon Power said the Vibrant Regional Businesses program was all about meeting the needs of the community’s local small businesses in ways which will best support them in their post COVID-19 business recovery.
“The Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry has taken a leadership role throughout COVID-19, providing essential advice and valuable support to our local business community,” Donna said.
“Through this new initiative, Horizon Power can support the ongoing and important work the Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry.”
Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry will receive $30,000 which will support the organisation in delivering a 12-month calendar of business events.
Bronwyn McLeod, Executive Officer of Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that as a result of the Vibrant Regional Businesses program the Chamber could continue to provide the business community with quality networking and learning events.
“During this period, when many business owners and operators are feeling isolated, we have continued to offer our events program digitally, and we have also made these available to entire community,” Bronwyn said.
“Thanks to Horizon Power we will be able to continue to deliver engaging and topical events to support our local businesses through this challenging time of change.”
