Adventurer, award-winning documentary-maker, television presenter, and businessman Todd Sampson will headline the Geelong Small Business Festival The Pier Geelong.

During the opening event, the business, advertising and marketing guru will reveal the practical tools and techniques you can use to improve your brain and meet the challenges and stresses of modern life.

Mayor Peter Murrihy said the City of Greater Geelong is proud to host the festival and help local businesses gain insights from one of the best business minds in the country.

“Guest speakers, like Todd, can really inspire business owners and operators to try something different and take their business to the next level,” he said.

“We’re thrilled to have secured Todd for this headline event, and we encourage everyone to book early because tickets are likely to sell out.”

Now in its 12th year, the region’s largest dedicated business festival features more than 50 low-cost and free events designed to connect, inspire, grow, and support the local business community.

“Whether you’re experienced in business, a budding entrepreneur or looking to start your own business, the festival provides opportunities to hear from industry experts, up-skill, and make new business connections,” Mayor Murrihy said.

Todd Sampson will present an information session titled Boost your Brain Power, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, much of last year’s festival was held online, with a small number being held in person and with a reduced capacity. Despite this shift, the festival still provided an important boost to our small business community and was attended by almost 700 people.
