With a mission to support, educate and inspire business owners, change-makers and individuals across Perth and the wider regions, Plus Eight Boosted brings to the community world renowned and successful business experts.

During the last week of October, we were joined by Shana Dressler, Former Executive Director of Google’s 30 Weeks, co-founder of the NYC Innovation Collective and CEO of Turquoise Consulting. With more than just an impressive resume, Shana shared her knowledge, skills and experience to a range of like minded individuals, helping them achieve business growth and success.

Running under the X-TEND WA Program, supported by New Industries WA, Boosted unlocks local potential for businesses no matter what stage of their business they’re at. Isabelle Goldfarb, Impact Programs Manager at Spacecubed says, “It was great to see Shana bringing ideas from New York to generate new insights and opportunities for our local community. While some people validated that they are already following international best practices, others were challenged and inspired to get out of their comfort zone. In the end, each participant took exactly what they needed.” 

Jasmin Ward shared her insights during a video recording for the program. “Plus Eight Boosted gives founders, like myself, the opportunity to come back to Spacecubed and join the ecosystem.”

Andrea Salmond, attendee of our Albany workshop, also had glowing things to say about Shana coming to Perth and the regions. “It was wonderful having access to someone with exposure to such a vast range of businesses with international connections. Plus, her dynamic presentation style made the session incredibly enjoyable, informative, and provided a lot of applicable, actionable, tangible steps we can take to really get the most out of our own business. Further, the peer-learning exercises we did were enlightening, and will be repeated in our own office!”

Once again, many thanks to The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation for supporting Plus Eight Boosted, as well as our many partners for this series including ArgiStart, The Chamber of Commerce and Arts and Fathom Co.

We’re very excited to announce our next Boosted Series, will take place in December featuring both Dan Murphy, Director of Global Sales Development at Culture Amp and Michael Masterson, Managing Director at EverEdge Australia & New Zealand. These two experts will be taking us through how to raise capital and how to scale your innovation’s early success. You can access tickets to these events here.
