MORE than 60 Gympie region business people have sharpened the tools of their trade over two days of seminars and conferences at the Gympie RSL Orchid Room this week.

Despite a widespread downturn for rurally-based small businesses, there are still ways to drive growth, session speaker Damian Morgan told business people at the RSL.

The journalist, commentator and advertising executive covered topics including business development and growth, marketing and public relations tactics.

"I really found the whole experience impressive and empowering,” Major Mobiles co-owner Zac Cotton said.

"We've only been in business in Gympie for about three months or so, and there are already things we now know to do differently.”
