City puts spotlight on helping small business

July 14, 2017 by  

Providing small business in Box Hill South and surrounding areas with a competitive edge is one of the aims of this year’s Whitehorse Small Business Week.

The annual event is held in conjunction with the Victorian Government’s Small Business Festival.

Whitehorse Mayor Denise Massoud said the week, which has proven to be a popular inclusion on business calendars across the city, will consist of a number of events designed to give small businesses a competitive edge. She said:

“The Women in Business Luncheon always features a talented businesswoman to share her experiences in business, and Council is proud to host this year’s guest speaker, swimmer and media commentator Nicole Livingstone OAM.”

The Mayor said that the diverse mix of events will include top tips, advice and insights on customer engagement, investment, economics, and marketing services.

She said both established and emerging business of all sizes in Whitehorse are catered for throughout the programme, which will also provide lots of networking opportunities, as well as a chance to have questions answered by event presenters.

To be held from August 14 to 18, the Whitehorse Business Week will include a number of business breakfasts, lunches and dinners, beginning with the first Business lunch `Harnessing Your Passion for Powerful Marketing’ on August 14 at Clarion on Canterbury, with guest speaker Ailsa Page.
