We’re extending this special invitation to our members and partners, and friends, to be the first to understand why so many businesses in Queensland are failing! And it’s not why you might think!

A special study – The Challenges facing Small Business –  commissioned by the Coffee Commune, reveals the bottom line for business failure is not about red tape and compliance or operational costs. The real reason lies in the discovery that too many business owners don’t have the skills or experience to create enough customers.

In this informative and myth-busting presentation, Phillip Di Bella will reveal insights from the report and discuss key takeaways and essential strategies to ensure your business thrives in an ever evolving and tougher landscape. As always, the presentation will be followed by our engaging and insightful Q&A session.


Afterwards, seize the opportunity to connect with Coffee Commune members, partners and friends over complimentary drinks and nibbles.

*Please note photos and videos may be taken throughout the event for promotional purposes.


Phillip Di Bella

Managing Director

Phillip Di Bella is a highly respected business entrepreneur with a unique ability to visualize and commercialise what many others never see. Though initially known for the establishment of Di Bella Coffee, which became Australia’s largest specialty coffee company, Phillip’s entrepreneurial spirit has brought success to other businesses such as International Coffee Traders, Abbotsford Road Specialty Coffee in New York, and more recently The Coffee Commune.

Not satisfied with simply focusing on building his own successful businesses, Phillip has dedicated much time to supporting the growth and development of other businesses. Often referred to as an “Entrepreneur in Residence”, Phillip regularly lends his strategic thinking to businesses such as BDO Consulting, helping their clients overcome challenges, see new opportunities, and then supporting the commercialisation of these solutions.

Phillip has further extended his commitment to the coaching and mentoring of other businesses through the establishment of The Coffee Commune - a business dedicated to the long term development, sustainability and success of the broader coffee industry for all participants. Through The Coffee Commune Phillip enthusiastically shares his experience and knowledge of the coffee industry and continues his passion for encouraging improvement and inspiration in others.
