The Club

On 15th Feb 2022, New Perspectives, MDH accountants and the Launceston Chamber of Commerce are launching a monthly peer support program to help business owners navigate their challenges and share their successes.

We get it

You know how running your own business can feel quite lonely and overwhelming at times? As small business owners ourselves, we get it!

What will it involve?

Monthly sessions will be facilitated by Roland Hanekroot and Michael Harvey, including learning topics, brainstorming and peer support. Work alongside other business owners to problem solve, grow and inspire one another.


The way out of loneliness and overwhelm in business is to surround yourself with support and guidance. Working with your fellow business owners to find simple practical solutions for your most pressing issues and then implement them, one step at a time will help you build the business and life you’ve always dreamt of.

The Growth Club provides a safe space for business owners, like you, to come together and support each other in the development and growth of each other’s businesses.


  • First meeting on Tuesday the 15th of Feb 2022, then every third Tuesday of the month.
  • Monthly 7.00am to 9.30am breakfast sessions. (Doors open at 6.45, please arrive before 7… Doors close at 7.05am)
