                                  A WHOLE NEW WORLD
                                  STATE OF ART COMMUNICATIONS STORE OPENS IN DEVONPORT
                                  The first TLife store in northern Tasmania will open in Devonport
                                  on Monday 21st September.
TLife is a new retail communication concept developed and rolled out by Telstra nationally.
Existing Telstra Shops and Telstra Licensed Shops will be converted
into TLife sites throughout Australia over the next three years.
Telstra has undertaken extensive customer research to identify what
customers want and what they want to experience in store. It’s all about
showing our customers what’s possible, by demonstrating and selling
the latest technology of today and tomorrow their lives will be
enhanced.
The Telstra Shop opened in the Devonport Mall in 2002 and one million
customers later Devonport will see a major retail transition, which will
set the standard for future shopping experiences.
“The communications industry has changed so much since I started
almost ten years ago, but I love it and I really enjoy being able to make            Julie Goss
a difference in the way people go about their lives “, remarks Julie Goss
Devonport Sales Manager.
“This is clearly the most exciting concept I have been involved in and it will provide Devonport
customers with a state of the art communications experience” says Julie.
“ All staff have had to be trained specially to work in Tlife and they are really looking forward to
working in such a cool place” , remarks Julie. “ The layout of the store and the associated customer
experience is just amazing“, says Julie enthusiastically.
“ I am so proud to be a part of the team that are bringing the latest technology to the
people of Devonport “ states Julie.
It’s all about showing our customers what’s possible. “ It is going to be whole new ball game, but the
customer service will stay the same” quips Julie.
The project has been six months in the making with the majority of work being completed by
Tasmanian tradesman. “ We believe in supporting Tasmanian business where ever possible, says
                                                                Julie.
                                                                “ The substantial investment we are
                                                                making is a vote of confidence in not

Premier’s Message
Right now, our State is confronting the same three challenges facing
every State in the nation, and every nation on earth.
· The management of scarce water resources;
· The rapid race of the telecommunications revolution; and
· The imperative for creating sustainable and renewable energy.
These are the challenges that will define the 21st Century – and in
each one Tasmania has a natural advantage that we need to harness.
In water, we get 12% of the country’s rainfall, on 1½ of its landmass – that is the inbuilt ad-
vantage that we are harnessing through $400 million worth of irrigation projects that can see
us become the food bowl of Australia.
Through our paddock-to-plate strategy, we will create a continuum of food excellence that
runs all the way from the farmer in the field to the plates of Tasmania’s world-class food and
wine tourism operators.
In telecommunications, the roll-out of the NBN will connect 200,000 homes, schools, hospi-
tals and businesses – creating a Tasmania that can become a test-bed for the most tech-
nologically advanced e-health, e-education and e-business opportunities on earth.
Tasmania is Australia’s renewable energy powerhouse – we are the single biggest producer
of renewable energy in the nation. By supporting a massive investment in renewable energy
– in wind, wave, hot rocks and others – we can become a global leader.
The key to harnessing these three opportunities is build the best education system in the
nation – one that gives our kids the new generation skills for the new generation jobs that are
coming their way.
We are investing record amounts in the early years, in literacy and numeracy, and in post-
year 10 education, to make our vision of being the best in Australia by 2016 a reality. These
are the things that will drive Tasmania’s economic growth in the next decade and beyond,
and will enable us to address the three ‘Ps’ of Population, Productivity, and Participation.
If we get the economic settings right – if we turn global challenges into Tasmanian opportuni-
ties – we can support a new decade of Tasmanian growth.
The support and drive of local businesses right around Tasmania – including on the north-
west coast – will be vital if Tasmania is to achieve all that it can in this next decade.

Premier

President’s Message
Eric Mobbs

This has been one of consolidation. With the current economic situation we were forced
to postpone the North West Commerce and Industry awards due to lack of sponsors.
This has meant that we were forced to hold back on some activities due to a lack of
funds, in spite of this the Chamber still managed a small surplus.

Our first network meeting held at the East Devonport Recreation Centre was very
successful and we will be holding more in the future.

During the year Barb Prothero left as our secretary after 2 years in the position,
Barb did the Chamber proud in her time with us and we wish her well in the future.
We welcome her replacement Alice Vernon.

The Chamber once again was able to run the Jazz and Dine Dinner in July as part of the
Jazz weekend and the evening was well supported with 100 guests present. Next year
we are hoping for a full house of 150.

The chamber was represented at the RPDC hearing for the Homemaker Centre and also
has made representation to the Government in relation to the Science Imaginarium fol-
lowing on Councils decision to possibly close the facility at the end of this year.

Representation has also been made to Council regarding the
new car parking charges for Saturday Morning.

I wish to thank all of the Executive committee for their assis-
tance this year without them and our sponsors the Chamber
would not exist.

Mayor’s Message
Devonport Chamber of Commerce & Industry Annual Report

As Mayor, on behalf of Devonport City Council, I would like to acknowledge the important
role the Devonport Chamber of Commerce & Industry plays in this city’s continued
economic growth.
Devonport is geographically well-placed to become the service and retail centre for North
-West Tasmania. Council recognises the benefits of working in partnership with business
and community groups to achieve our vision of Devonport being a thriving and welcoming
regional City living lightly by the river and sea.
One of Council’s key strategies is to manage strategic urban development to support the
“Go for Growth” initiatives that support the CBD and reduces fragmentation.
Council also plans to improve the City’s physical access and connectivity and to develop
 and maintain a high profile City entrance and streetscape that enhances and maintains
Devonport’s character.
It is vitally important that Council works in partnership with industry and government to
pursue opportunities and address impediments to further economic development, to
identify future infrastructure needs of business and industry and pursue implementation
options. Equally important is the need to promote and encourage the development of
initiatives that maximises use of the local economy, retains local expenditure and
captures leakages.
The natural beauty of the area combined with the sea gateway to the island and home to
the Spirit of Tasmania provides the foundations to become a welcoming regional city
with a strong economy. Council is committed to providing leadership to the
community by balancing the various needs of industry, business, the
community, government and the environment to ensure Devonport is a
regional leader with a strong and sustainable future.

Marketing Report
Kim Robinson

It is with much pleasure that I present this report for your perusal. The past year has been a very busy one
with a few challenges. Early in the year we made the decision to change the format of the Awards to Leader-
ship Awards however due to a variety of circumstances, the major one being the economic downturn we
were unable to secure adequate sponsors to make the project viable for the Chamber. Ongoing discussions
with the Launceston Chamber of Commerce then allowed us to align our Awards to theirs and other Cham-
bers in the North of the State are following suit. We are confident this will lead to state awards for all of our
category winners. The North West Business and Industry Awards will now be launched in February and the
Gala Dinner that will also celebrate the amazing food and beverage produced in this region will be held in
May of 2010.
We held our first Members meeting and this was a great success and will be an ongoing event on our calen-
dar. Business Women’s Luncheons have continued to be well patronized and this year we also re-
introduced Business Men’s Luncheons sponsored by O Group. Our variety of network functions for both
genders of our membership have been well attended and we have been fortunate with all of our events to
have interesting and informative guest speakers give their time willingly to the Chamber.
We continue to be a pro-active Chamber taking issues for our members to local council and state govern-
ment.
As you know we have had a change in Secretary and I would like to thank Barb Prothero for her contribution
to the day to day activities and welcome our new Secretary Alice Vernon to the role. I was overseas when
Alice started and she has taken to the job like a duck to water so I look forward to working with Alice in the
future to ensure our members are well catered for with networking functions and professional development.
The Shadforths Office Professionals and Managers Breakfast was a sell out again and this event continues
to be considered one of the major networking events on the North West Coast. I must make special mention
of Qantaslink for their fantastic support for the chamber this year. We were able to assist Qantaslink with the
launch of the new Q400 aircraft servicing Devonport, earlier this year. Pure Tasmania continue to provide
amazing support for our major events and BJ’s Pharmacy provide prizes for every activity we organize. I
would like to thank all of our Platinum, Diamond and Gold Members and pay tribute to 7AD Radio for the
support they provide in promoting our activities. We also have a great relationship with the Advocate and
recently received a commitment from Win Television to assist us in many areas of promotion and advertising.
Can I also thank Powertek Australia for their support of the Jazz Dine and Dance event this year which was a
huge success and a night that was enjoyed by everyone who attended. Thanks to the Executive members
that have supported my role and in particular I would like to acknowledge the hard work that Eric Mobbs our
Presidents does for the Chamber. I have thoroughly enjoyed my role with the Chamber and hope that we
can continue to grow and provide activities for our members that are of benefit to their business and our
community.
To all our members and sponsors a huge thank you for your ongoing support and I welcome any ideas you
may have to improve our service to you.

Kim Robinson – Marketing Executive

             R.J. Burgess Perpetual Trophy
                        for the
     Most Improved Industrial Site in East Devonport

 In 1985, Captain (ret) Dick Burgess gave the trophy award
 to encourage industrial businesses in East Devonport to improve
                 the visual amenity of their premises.
  A well known and highly respected citizen of Devonport with a
long record of support and interest in the future of the city.
    The suburb of East Devonport has recently had a renovation
through the auspices of the $5m Devonport Eastern Shore Project,
 which has invigorated the village and foreshore precincts.
East Devonport is the place where approximately 125,000 tourists
            arrive in Tasmania via the Spirit of Tasmania.
One of the cheif aims of the project was to divert light and heavy
  traffic to enable the arrival experience for tourists in what is a
       working port area, to be enhanced and allow for more
                    appropriate access and egress.

             A background of The Signmakers

The Signmakers first started in 1996 under the name of Paint'n Signs in
a small shopfront in King Street in Devonport with 2 partners.
After 3 months Greg Wheatley purchased his partners share which
proved to be a positive move as it continued to forge ahead.
Initially there was 12 signwriting business's in Devonport in 1996 but
within 4 years it was down to just 4 or 5 and presently still about the
same. After 18 months of trading Paint'n Signs went on to purchase
another local sign firm known as The Signmaker also known as
Masoncraft Signs this coincided with a move into bigger premises in
Steele St, Devonport then becoming known as The Signmakers.
This proved to be a good move but after another 18 months we had
outgrown the new premises and went on to purchase a bigger building
in Spreyton along with aquiring a local screenprinting firm.
We actually out grew these premises within 12 months but decided we
had moved enough, so we stayed for 6 years until deciding to build a
new purpose built factory in East Devonport.
The factory sits on almost an acre of land which overlooks western
Devonport and is situated in the shipping & port precinct, the factory
complex consists of 3 main factories totalling approx 1500m2.
After 4 years in the new East Devonport complex The Signmakers went
on to purchase Zenith Signs in Hobart, this came about because we
felt we needed to service our growing southern client base,
If Zenith Signs did not come about when it did we would have opened a
new factory in Hobart but the staffing of it would always be an issue.
The Signmakers have experienced a massive growth rate over recent
years and have recently broken into the Victorian market as well with
our team of installers well conversed with country and metropolitan
Victoria.
Greg Wheatley is the sole Director of this vibrant company but the
success is credited to his loyal and creative team totalling 32 between
the 2 facilities.
