Over 35 years in print media sales and management, primarily in community newspapers (both metropolitan and country/regional),has provided Trevor with an affinity for SME's and the challenges they face. While living in Sydney from 2000 to 2013, he has been able to work with local business via direct contact as Sales Manager or GM of community newspapers in Sydney's south and west, while developing a strong connection with the BEC network. Trevor has been a board member of ESBEC for over 10 years.
Providing the smallest of small businesses with the tools to survive and prosper has been Trevor's focus in recent years and his current role in the media industry provides ample opportunity to work with local business in the communities they rely upon as the source of their customer base.
Trevor is currently living in Melbourne but plans to return to Sydney early in 2015.
"Never be afraid to admit that a good idea came from someone else."
Often when a small business opens, local community organisations look to them for donations. They all have worthwhile aims, so how do you choose which to give local community sponsorship to?
