Business relationship expert to speak about growing small businesses in tough times at ABITE 09
Business relationship expert Dennis Hall will be one of the speakers at this year's Australian Business and IT Expo (ABITE) in Melbourne on 21 and 22 August 2009.

Hall's presentation, 'Guerrilla marketing', how to grow your business in tough economic times' will be on Friday, 21 August at 4.30 pm and also on Saturday, 22 August at 12.30pm.

"There's no doubt it's been tough times for most businesses and even though things seem to be improving, businesses still need to play it smart," said Hall.

"The presentation will include some useful strategies and tools businesses can employ to help them grow. One of these is barter exchange networks, like BBX, which can help attract new customers and protect cash flow. These things can mean life or death to a small business.

"I've been a BBX member for many years and I use it to generate additional income by offering my coaching services to member businesses. It also helps to keep my cash flow healthy as I use it to pay for many of my business expenses like marketing activities, for instance brochures," said Hall.

Hall has 30 years experience in sales, marketing, training and technology and has worked with a number of high profile companies, including Harper Collins Publishers, QANTAS, Sheraton Hotels, Lend Lease Management and Yellow Pages Australia.

An accredited trainer and facilitator, Hall is an experienced speaker and presenter and speaks regularly to business audiences about the challenges they face in today's marketplace. Hall also runs two businesses, Direct Dialogue which offers corporate and business training support, and also AusBizLinks which provides businesses with technology and online marketing support.
