If you are a small business owner in the community that is experiencing economic challenges and would like some practical support for your business continuity and financial health, this free workshop is for you.

Recognising that when times are tough on farms, the service and retail businesses in surrounding towns are also impacted, this workshop aims to deliver fast information on how to assess the financial health of your business to guide your actions.  

This short and practical workshop, delivered by a small business expert, will help you manage your business, assess your current financial position and give important financial tips on how to overcome difficult situations.

To complement the workshop, Small Business Victoria in partnership with Corangamite Shire, are offering your business a free and private one-hour follow-up. Your session will be arranged during the workshop and will likely occur the same day as your workshop, or over the phone.

The workshops are free and a light breakfast is provided. Registrations are required for catering purposes. For further information please contact the Growth & Engagement team on 5593 7100 or
