Deborah Hutton to reveal path to success on Coast

SHE has graced the covers of some of the world's most famous magazines, built a stellar media career spanning more than three decades, and made a name for herself as a successful businesswoman in her own right.

Next week, Australian icon Deborah Hutton will journey to the Sunshine Coast to share her secrets for success as part of the Connect 2015 business event being held on Thursday, July 30.

Ms Hutton said she was excited to be returning to the region to take part in the one-day event, where she would explore the concepts of resilience and reinvention in business.

"The message is all about reinvention. How do we restructure our lives to make sure we're resilient? How do we keep ourselves relevant?" Ms Hutton said.

"It's important for all business owners and operators to build strength first and foremost. After that, your business has a better chance of being a success. You really have to feed yourself as well as the business."

Ross Hepworth, event chair of the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce which is hosting Connect 2015, said this was very much the thinking behind the event - providing an opportunity for business people to evaluate the progress of their business in order to reap the rewards of increased growth or reinvention.
