It was great to catch up with Needhams Business and Financial Strategies. A truly local business right in the heart of the SouthFest footprint it was great to have them on board to promote local business connections... and they are bringing back the Blastalot Arena!
Tell us a bit about you, your business and what SouthFest means to you.
We are a finance firm that specialises in accounting, finance broking and business advisory. We have been a part of the Tuggeranong community for over 20 years. The landscape of Tuggeranong has changed so much over the last two decades with so many businesses opening their doors to the community and generating revenue making Tuggeranong an amazing place to live.
To us, Southfest represents the spirit of the community that people share in Tuggeranong. It is a great way for business and local people meet, get together and enjoy what Tuggeranong has to offer.
What do you love most about living and working in the Tuggeranong Valley?
The Lake! It adds such beauty to Tuggeranong and brings people together. Tuggeranong is also a close-knit community where people are always coming together to help and support each other giving businesses a boost.
Tuggeranong is growing every day. We are seeing more and more businesses opening their doors and employment in the area is solid. Tuggeranong is truly on its way to becoming a very sought-after part of Canberra.
You partnered with SouthFest last year, why was it important for you to be a part of the event for another year?
We enjoy being a part of the Tuggeranong community. Partnering with an event like SouthFest enables us to reach out to so many different people and come together to help make Tuggeranong shine!
What does #TuggersPride mean to you/your business?
We have been a part of Tuggeranong for so many years now, being a part of the circle has given our business a chance to grow, prosper and develop and foster new and old relationships.
It’s with extreme pride to see how far Tuggeranong has come. And with a joint effort by everyone – we can reach such great heights by elevating each other. It is the very essence of Tuggeranong.
What would you tell someone who was thinking about joining in the party for 2019?
Apart from being a fun day out for the whole family, it is a great way to see what the local businesses (and the people) have to offer. It’s an ideal opportunity to network and collaborate with people you may not have had to chance to meet.
All the great performances and market stalls make it the perfect day out for families giving everyone the opportunity to experience the very best of what Tuggeranong has to offer.
