“Hi DRTN Team, 


Just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic night of learning ,a great venue and great food plus actually connecting with the people who can make a difference for small businesses.




1) I had no idea of the benefits for members of Victorian Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) plus the direct assistance they can provide to small businesses.


2) Having met the person who can be the  first point of contact  at Yarra Ranges Council  for small businesses was fantastic- no more going around in circles trying to find the most appropriate person to talk to. If unable to help, we will be given the correct person to speak with.


3) A tour of Puffing Billy  provided me with a lot of interesting information, not gleaned from a regular visit , which I can share with our clientele (value added)


Looking forward to our next network meeting.”
