SME Business Showcase

Join us at our first one for 2020! 

This is a great opportunity for you to come and meet eight of our local businesses – learn about what they do and how they could help you and your business, all while enjoying drinks and nibbles in the foyer of the Marlborough Convention Centre.

These are FREE events and are great opportunities for you to network with other local businesses! There will also be some great prizes up for grabs in the business card draw! 

The eight businesses that are hosting this SME Business Showcase are:

Most businesses experience situations where individuals or companies haven’t paid for goods or services they have supplied or provided. Credit Recoveries Limited has been supporting Marlborough businesses and individuals to recover unpaid amounts since 2008. During this time, we have interacted with over 300 local entities to recover over $1.8m in doubtful or bad debt. We act for a diverse range of industries from councils to finance companies, childcare centres to trades so ensure recovery attempts respect our clients brand and reputation while delivering results. We have nationwide coverage for contingent collections, document and field service including civil litigation.

Martin Hughes has been supporting businesses and schools for 15 years, with a relentless focus on making the most profitable workplace behaviours easier to adopt. By simplifying our relationship with technology, productivity becomes the focus, instead of frustration, delay and resource wasting. Within busy organisations, regardless of size, this guarantees 100% uptake so that everyone does an even better job, faster and with much less stress.
Martin is currently working with Callaghan Innovation during their Google migration and has worked with local businesses such as Laser Electrical and StraightupNZ. As a Google Certified Trainer, Martin delivers learning experiences that are mainly based within G Suite but accommodating other technologies also.
