Norwest residents and businesses are invited to an open forum to explore how Norwest will realise its ‘Smart City’ potential, and what economic impact this city-scale development will have on small and large businesses in Norwest.
The final Norwest SMARTtalks this year will be held on Thursday 5 December at Aveo Bella Vista. The talks are aimed at fostering learning, inspiration and sharing of ideas and people connections within the Norwest residential and business community.
Keynote speaker Warwick Turpin, Economic Director of leading urban planning consultants Ethos Urban, will discuss the growth trends in Sydney, the benefits of mixed-use integration and the economic step changes as town centres grow to different sizes.
He will outline characteristics leading to successful outcomes and will offer case studies where these poly-centric city centres are thriving and meeting the challenges of the future.
Following Mr Turpin’s talk is a panel discussion will be led by Tim Spencer from Mulpha Norwest, featuring four prominent business leaders in The Hills community: Stephanie Dale of DMC Advertising, Brett Beazley of Norwest Commercial, Anmol Singh of Paras and Baz Residential and Nigel Raynor, Chairman of the Sydney Hills Business Chamber.
The panel will discuss and answer questions relating to business growth in The Hills and how local business can leverage off city-scale development, while maintaining Norwest’s unique entrepreneurial and community spirit.
Mulpha Developments Executive General Manager, Tim Spencer said:
“This is a great opportunity to hear from a leading thinker and some of our own business leaders on how Norwest can realise its potential as an economic powerhouse and a great place to live, work and play.”
“Norwest today is a business park, however the future vision for Norwest is to evolve into a ‘Smart City’. We have a unique opportunity to shape our future as a vibrant entrepreneurial economy with lifelong learning, innovation and collaboration at its core,” Tim Spencer said.
