Lord Mayor Graham Quirk

Last night the team attended the Lord Mayor’s Business Forum event at River Park Place, Morningside. These regular forums give local business owners an opportunity to learn from some of Brisbane’s most successful entrepreneurs, consult with council experts on everything from tendering to marketing, and even ask the Lord Mayor himself a question or two.

But this month’s event was a little different to normal. As part of the Council’s new Digital Brisbane initiative, attendees had the ability to register for ongoing updates, industry news and digital advice, simply by texting their email address to the mobile number provided.

Those who subscribed instantly received a text message confirming their subscription, as well as a mobile-responsive email welcoming them to the Digital Brisbane community.
