Fleur Anderson - Round 2, 2016 Champion

Consultation has concluded

Fleur Anderson

Growing rural economic diversity through access to digital technology

Fleur Anderson is passionate about providing rural and regional businesses with the digital know-how that they need to help their communities thrive. The committed Theodore-based businessperson and community advocate is in the process of producing a podcast series, Beating Around the Bush, to be made available to budding regional and rural entrepreneurs.

Episodes will feature:

  • new technology and app profiles
  • productivity tips
  • online resource information
  • interviews with rural and regional business people, discussing their experiences and providing advice.

An upcoming episode will focus on how to use social media to help businesses operate online, which Fleur has identified as a major area of potential growth for rural businesses. Beating Around the Bush will be available free via iTunes, Soundcloud and Whooshkaa.

Fleur is particularly interested in the link between entrepreneurial development and community development. She has been actively involved in the Theodore community in the Banana Shire Council region for more than 15 years and is currently helping local schools investigate opportunities to explore entrepreneurship and digital innovation.

Fleur is also the brain behind the Rural Business Collective, an initiative she has launched to help increase regional economic diversity. Her goal is to help small businesses access the digital technology and services they need to thrive and provide opportunities for people to meet, connect and collaborate.

Fleur’s business, The Cahoots Group, operates a consultancy agency that helps corporates, community groups and small business invest socially in rural communities. A key goal of The Cahoots Group is to deliver value to people in rural and regional Australia to create vibrant, flourishing rural communities.

As a digital champ, Fleur will continue her delivery of digital content to help businesses expand their reach and create resilient, sustainable regional communities.

Fleur is nominated by: Banana Shire Council
