An article in InDaily caught my eye when I saw one of the newest members of EDA South Australia being profiled.
I reference Sarah Lindblom, who joined EDA late last year.
Her role as director of strategic collaboration at Business SA presents excellent opportunities for collaboration on economic development initiatives between EDA and Business SA, and also for local government, which is something close to my heart.
Sarah’s message aligns significantly with our aims at EDA South Australia:
We’re really looking at how Business SA can add more value to our members but also be more effective in the work that we do in South Australia around growing the economy. But, essentially, it’s about jobs growth in the state as well. How can we be a thriving economy where people want to come here, start businesses, stay, play, invest? Overall that’s really what our focus is. (InDaily, February 9, 2016)
We know we need to work together to drive local economic development and what interests me greatly is Business SA’s particular business expertise will contribute greatly to the efforts of economic development practitioners.
