Small business bootcamp workshops in Campaspe

7 February 2019 - Media release

Whip your business into shape with seven interactive workshops, presented by industry professionals at various venues across Campaspe Shire between February and June.

Mayor Cr Adrian Weston said the sessions are held in conjunction with Small Business Victoria and will provide case studies and deliver strategies and tools to apply to your own business.

“The workshops will be held in Echuca, Tongala, Kyabram and Rochester and cover a range of topics including starting a business, marketing, planning essentials, finance fundamentals, online business and social media,” Cr Weston said.

“The workshops and seminars have been subsidised by council and with prices ranging between $20 and $30, they really are outstanding value.”
