CBC kicked off 2016 with an After5 at the Smithfield RSL where an audience of almost 40 local business owners heard a detailed economic state of play from Julianne Christie, the Senior Policy Advisor-Economic Development at Fairfield City Council. Julianne has been studying the national, state and local economies for the past 9 years and has a thorough knowledge of the Greater West of Sydney, in particular, the industrial sector. President Craig Hingston then “interviewed” new member Andre Meyer from Meyer West IP. Andre is a trademark-patent attorney and his explanation of protecting company brands and new product ideas was captivating.
A summary of Julianne’s presentation will be published here shortly.
