Barossa Business Forum
December 10, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
I invite you, as a Barossa Business owner and employer, to a Barossa Business forum
Please bring a chair, perhaps a platter and BYO drinks to join in open conversation and take advantage of listening to business owners from our region.
We will have a legal team present to try and answer all of your questions in regards to potential litigation surrounding commerce, business and discrimination laws that may affect your business.
Here you can meet with like-minded business owners to discuss what is affecting businesses in the Barossa Council area, due to government mandates. Ideas for solutions going forward will also be discussed.
“As a business owner in the Barossa Valley, I am concerned about the number of businesses that are already introducing mandates and preventing members of our local community to enter their shops, businesses and trading premises. This is resulting in everyday people being harassed about their vaccination status.
As you would sincerely understand, the last two years have had a devastating impact on our businesses around the nation and in particular the Hospitality, Arts, Entertainment and Tourism sectors. The last two years have been extremely taxing and many are frustrated as to the “on again, off again” approach governments are taking with regard to current world matters.
But right now, as an employer, a local and an advocate for tourism in the Barossa, I’m seeing businesses of all industries and sectors close their doors and refuse entry to unvaccinated customers and their families.
Most small businesses have suffered and endured extreme hardship over at least the last 12 months, not only financially, but have also struggled to retain staff (and exceptional, loyal long-term staff members at that). I’m certainly not going to be picky and choose who patronises and wants to spend money within my business.
Mandate laws are extremely frustrating and are probably encroaching on our civil liberties under the privacy act. Business owners need certainty and those interested in expressing their grievances at a brainstorming get together, are urged to attend an informal meeting. There appears to be a divide happening within the community, so this meeting is designed to initially formalise the views of everyone. Moving forward, we can look at calling a public meeting to gain further support within our community and region.
As a tourism region, we all need to be on the same page and by showing we are unified, we can then involve our State representatives, the Barossa Council and Councillors. The end game is to ensure we are a Pro-Choice region.
Please share this with your networks and other business owners and I look forward to meeting you, your families and teams. Feel free to contact me on 0438 557 878 or via email email@example.com if you would like to more information on this important matter.”
Please share this with business owners. Business owners from other council areas are also welcome.
