The human stories behind Canberra businesses

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

A new book celebrating business success in Canberra will launch this August, featuring over fifty unique stories from business owners in the ACT, including In The City Canberra’s very own CEO, Jane Easthope.

Canberra Business Success Stories was written over eighteen months, with Author Suzanne Kiraly conducting over sixty interviews with Canberra business owners.

The book sheds light on what it takes to establish, grow and thrive in the commercial environment in the ACT. To be included, business owners must have been operating in the Canberra region for over 10 years.

Each story gives a unique look at the private lives of Canberra’s movers and shakers, who are brave enough to share their struggles as well as their triumphs with readers.

Flicking through the book, you’ll see some of Canberra’s well known businesses, such as Her Canberra and Zoo Advertising, as well as some less familiar. Each story is as exciting and inspiring as the last.

Canberra Business Success Stories is a wonderful reminder of the vibrant and entrepreneurial heart of Canberra. For those with business aspirations, it offers advice worth its weight in gold.

“If business is about trust (and it is), these are the businesses, whose stories will engage you and make the art of doing business locally, so much more rewarding,” says Author Suzanne Kiraly.
