Podcast propels pair into spotlight, named Regional Heroes
A NEW podcast aimed at helping regional business owners grow and succeed has been recognised nationally by Kochie’s Business Builders.
Regional Roar was recently started by Toowoomba mother-of-two Melissa Dickfos and her friend Coffs Harbour woman Cath Fowler.
With millions of Australians tuning into podcasts, Regional Roar airs a new episode every fortnight, sharing the success stories of regional businesses throughout Australia.
Kochie’s Business Builders, run by David Koch, is currently running a Regional Heroes content series in conjunction with Yellow Online, that shines a light on the talent on offer within Australia’s regional and rural small business communities.
This week it was announced that Regional Roar had been named as one of 20 Australian Regional Heroes, selected from a pool of 700.
Ms Dickfos said she and her business partner felt humbled to have their podcast recognised on a national scale.
“We know that successful businesses can be found in the city and the country, and we take pride in being regional business owners and the fantastic lifestyle that living regionally affords us,” she said.
“To be named as an Australian Regional Hero is an honour. We’re simply two businesswomen who love living and working in regional Australia. We love the lifestyle, the community and working with other business owners.
“Starting our podcast has been a highlight for us this year. We’re loving sharing the stories and successes of business owners throughout rural and regional Australia.
“We love that we can help to empower others, while also sharing marketing and business tips to help businesses grow.”
