To a small business, $4,000 is the equivalent of several hundred thousand dollars to a large corporate. We can put that money back into the business – bolster local marketing, improve the website, and more.

“We couldn’t have asked for better representation and quick resolution,” says Sharon Leicht over the din of the workshop.

As small business owners in Port Macquarie, Sharon and Peter Leicht suspected overcharging on their workers compensation premiums. The Chamber member placed a call through to Mid North Coast Regional Manager, Kellon Beard, who elevated the matter to the Policy Team in the North Sydney office. 

Policy Analyst, Craig Milton, sought a timely review through the relevant scheme agent and WorkCover. Wheels turned and the automotive repairs business received a reprocessed statement at the end of the premium period, with a significant reduction in premium installments for the next two quarters – a saving of $4,000.

“Craig was on the ball,” says Sharon. “To a small business, $4,000 is the equivalent of several hundred thousand dollars to a large corporate. We can put that money back into the business – bolster local marketing, improve the website, and more.”

As for the regional presence of the Chamber: “Kellon and the team are very strong and proactive – not reactive. And that’s what you need in business representation.”
