South Australia Dinner

Tuesday, 19 September 2017

Guest Speaker, Rhett Payne from Country Blinds

Rhett Payne is an inspirational young business leader achieving enormous success in field that is dominated by cheap imports. He entered family owned Mt Barker based Country Blinds and Curtains literally on the shop floor straight from school and at a very young age unexpectedly became chief when his father had a paralysing stroke a few years ago.

Rhett manages the business supported by his two older brothers and together they have succeeded in upping the growth rate to a very high tempo by building quality products and emphasising superior customer service. Rhett will explain some of the techniques the family has used to grow the business from cottage size to 43 employees over approximately 15 years. Rhett’s 2014 ILF grant assisted him to attend the Melbourne Business School General Management program. Rhett knows how to protect you and your home from the elements. Personal protection from the elements is also guaranteed on an early spring evening in the Naval Military and Air Force Club at the South Australia.
