Orange’s Australian Hearing staff are joining their colleagues around the country celebrating 70 years.

Australian Hearing, based in Lords Place, was formed to assist Second World War veterans with hearing loss and children affected by a Rubella outbreak in 1947.

Audiologist and manager Sally Wood said Australian Hearing was a rehabilitation service which could provide practical help for adults and children diagnosed with hearing loss.

As well as help, Miss Wood said there was also testing for children and adults.

Among their services are hearing aids and other tools for everyday life including televisions, telephones and alarms.

Miss Wood said there were specialist programs for people with significant hearing loss and for people of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent.

NEXT STAGE

Charles Sturt University (CSU) is offering small businesses to reach the next stage.

The CenWest Innovate project, based at CSU Bathurst, is hosting the Next Stage Growth Program which will be delivered by Professor of Entrepreneurship Morgan Miles.

Professor Miles said small business owners needed a variety of skills.

“They will need to identify opportunities and innovations, network and negotiate, target markets, develop effective selling strategies and communications, improve processes, gather financial intelligence, and prepare to manage larger teams,” he said.

As well as the Next Stage program, Professor Miles and Errol Flanagan will host a free branding and target marketing seminar at the Hotel Canobolas on July 11.

The seminar will cover cost-effective communications and understanding market segments.

For more information about either the Next Stage Growth Program or the marketing seminar contact CSU on 6338 4503.

THICK TASTE

It might be winter but it hasn’t stopped Domino’s Pizza from launching their latest product.

All NSW stores are now selling thick shakes which are made at minus 14 degrees.

It’s part of the company’s push to be “more than just pizza” and the business is targeting 10 per cent of the thick shake and smoothies market.
