SOME OF THE BUSINESSES CURRENTLY IN DISTRICT32

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

In 2015, District32 was born with a vision to support business owners to overcome these immense challenges and to grow and prosper. Co-Founders of District32, Lorraine Garvie, CEO, and Dean Keating believed that there was a better way to do business.

Lorraine has an extensive background covering Marketing, Strategy, IT and Business Coaching and was hugely successful in her own right assisting businesses from sole traders to corporate to achieve growth and reach new levels in their business. Dean’s Business Development expertise has seen him accumulate sales exceeding $2 billion. Combining their knowledge and skills was the springboard to launching a Business Cooperative designed to provide leverage to business owners and to create exposure and opportunity.

District32 provides a strategy that connects the multiple, diverse strands required to sustain and grow your business. We provide several platforms for education, guidance, exposure and opportunities which deliver the tools that will raise your business to the next level.

In 2017 District32 delivered on every front:

  • $10m ++ in closed sales for our Members
  • Making Business TV accessible and affordable for Business Owners
  • Reaching audiences in of over 3 million with our own Radio/podcasts
  • Recognition as a multiple award winner including Business of the Year

District32 is a Business Cooperative that utilises the POWER OF NUMBERS and the MAGIC OF CONNECTING to get maximum exposure and opportunities for Business owners in Perth. The District32 team has galvanised a business network that is having a growing impact in the communities in which we operate.
