SMALL BUSINESS EXPERTS HEAD FOR EASTERN METRO

Small businesses in the Eastern Metro area will be able to access relevant, reliable and affordable information on growing their business at a workshop to be held throughout March

Last year more than 4,600 people participated in over 450 Small Business Victoria workshops across the State. The most popular topics included starting a business, financial management, employing staff, marketing and digital business.

The targeted workshops are part of a successful and long-running program allowing established and prospective business owners to access the advice they need to make informed decisions so they can expand their business and grow their profits.
