Business planning essentials: How to build a road map to success

Put your business on the path to long-term success at this workshop that takes you step-by-step through the essentials of building a business plan.

Learn how to drive your business forward by mapping out a plan that reveals where your business is at right now, where you'd like it to be in the future – and most importantly – how to develop a clear vision about what steps to take next and the strategies to get you there.

Taking your business online: What you need to know

Get ready to launch your business online at this essential digital workshop.

Learn how to make informed choices about websites and social media, get across search engines and online advertising, and size up the benefits that each one offers your business.

Taking you right back to basics, this workshop shows you how to access the right tools to begin and builds a complete picture of the opportunities ahead.

Finance fundamentals: How to keep the cash flowing

Spending more time juggling cash than running your business? Making a profit but still struggling to pay the bills?

Cash flow is the life blood of every small business – if your business doesn't have enough cash flow, things can start to go wrong. Without cash flow, no business can survive.

This essential small business workshop will ensure you won't get caught short and provides tips for improving cash flow in tough times.

Building resilience: How to prepare for business challenges and recovery

Every business faces exposure to risk, whether it be a natural crisis such as a bushfire or flood, or man-made such as accident or illness.

Not having a plan in place to activate in the event of an emergency can seriously compromise your ability to shield your business from crisis fallout.

This three hour workshop shows you how to put in place a practical plan for your business and help you navigate your recovery during tough times.

Don't take the risk and be on the back foot in the event of an emergency – be prepared because you never know when you'll be thankful that you were.

Selling or succession planning? How to exit successfully

It takes just as much planning to exit your business as it did to get started. You owe it to yourself – and all your hard work – to make sure this last big decision is a success.

Whether you're selling or setting up for succession, find out how to get yourself prepared for your next steps at this essential workshop that puts you in control of how, and when you move on.

Winning government business: What you need to know

If the idea of tendering for government business leaves you scratching your head thinking where to start or imagining a tangle of red tape – then think again.

The Australian government sector spends billions of dollars each year procuring products and services.

This workshop shows you step-by-step how to maximise your chances of success. Don't miss out on a great opportunity – put your business forward as a potential supplier.
