Retired professionals test Spark*Connection
Magic Cupboard Interactive were excited to hold their first Spark*Connection Test Days with retired professionals in September and October 2016.
Twelve retired professionals and business people from a range of industry sectors attended the days to test the Spark*Connection program model and provide feedback to the Magic Cupboard Interactive team.
Spark*Connection is a concept program where retired professionals meet up in their local area to provide advice to small and micro businesses.
The retired professionals came from a range of industry sectors, including advertising, building & construction, employment community services, finance, fitness, government employment support services, local government, retail and veterinary services.
They enjoyed using their wealth of knowledge and experience to provide business recommendations to five Coffs Harbour small and micro businesses owners.
When asked what they enjoyed best, these retired professionals said the three most commonly enjoyed aspects of the days were the group discussion (23%), collaboration (19%) and problem solving (13%) aspects.
