FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Competition is destroying Australian Business says the Head of The Young Entrepreneurs Society Australia
Melbourne, Brisbane,Sydney Australia - May 4, 2012 – Entrepreneurs in Australia don’t collaborate, too many businesses compete in this country where working together would make things better for business and every day Australians according to Thomas Reid from the Young Entrepreneur Society Australia.
39 year old Thomas sees increasing collaboration in Australian business as the only way to lead the country out of this economic state. Thomas feels that Australians will show that Aussie Spirit and work together in crisis like the recent floods or when we have bush fire threatening us but when we have a Financial crisis we tighten the grip and lose or forget our spirit turning to survival of the fittest leaving each business standing alone rather than working together.
This father of five wants to see many more Australians getting their business to market. ‘I have a 14 year old boy who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of three, he doesn’t fit the traditional schooling mould but when he gets an idea watch that boy share it with everyone. That is an Entrepreneur!’ says Thomas. Tynan, Thomas’ son says, “I want to speak to large groups of people so I can tell other kids like me how they can help Australia.”
There needs to be more opportunity for Entrepreneurs to collaborate, says Thomas who began his entrepreneurial journey at the tender age of 9 selling Newspapers whilst being raised by a single mother where time and money was always in short supply.
Reid fully supports Dr Fiona Q Wood, of the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, who states in her report on the nature of entrepreneurship in Australia and how it compares with other countries “Above all we need to collaborate as a nation rather than compete.”
63% of job creation in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)average are the result of Young Entrepreneur initiatives says Gregorire Sentilhes President of G20 (YES)Young Entrepreneur Summit.
Thomas has joined with Louis Lautman the Star of The YES Movie and Founder of the Young Entrepreneurs Society to share this message with Entrepreneurs in Australia.
