Business in WA After the Boom?

January, 2015
John Hughes says “It’s time for us all to get back to the basics”


“Now with the mining boom slowing down we need to accept that whilst business is not what it used to be, we are now facing many years of normality,” said Mr John Hughes founder of the John Hughes Group and WA’s most trusted car dealer.



“It is important for business people to adjust to this by getting back to the basics and becoming re-focussed on their business.”WA can be far more than just a mining and resources state, but it’s important we all work together to help drive the economy of Western Australia with energy and innovation,” Mr Hughes said.
WA business legend Mr John Hughes heads an impressive line-up of guest speakers and presenters at the 15th Business Knowledge & Software Expo being held at the Crown in Burswood on 18 March.
In an inspiring and motivating ‘warts and all’ presentation, Mr Hughes will reveal the inside story of the ups and downs of his long and successful business career.
“I’ll be sharing practical secrets that work for me, and which other business owners can immediately use in their own businesses too,” said Mr Hughes.
“Events like this Business Knowledge expo and the seminar program can make a huge difference to the business people who come along,” Mr Hughes said. “With this year’s seminars all free of charge, it makes good sense to tap into the expert presentations and get smarter about how we all can do better business in the real world of 2015.”
John Hughes will start the day with his special keynote presentation, to be followed by expert guest speakers conducting 16 business seminars in two streams.
The Digital Economy stream includes how to sell online; how to be smart with cloud computing; the latest in mobile technology; how to use LinkedIn and Twitter successfully for business and how not to get caught in scams.
The Bricks and Mortar Economy stream features expert presentations on how to turn strategies into results; new obligations with superannuation; how to win at customer service and effective ways to convert sales leads into customers.
Wrapping up the day is a unique Business Networking event with a Wine Tasting Masterclass featuring some of WA’s finest wines.
Admission to the seminars is free of charge, and includes entry to the Business Expo featuring many vital business software programs from leading service providers.
Expo organiser Mr Colin Atkinson said visitors will be able to freely pick the brains of experts at the seminars while learning the latest trends and developments in business software at the Expo.“Product comparisons are easy at the Expo, with many different packages being demonstrated on the one day at the one place,” said Mr Atkinson. Mr Atkinson advises that registration for the seminars is essential, and can be done online at or by phone on 9470 9922.
