Small businesses in the Malvern area will be able to access relevant, reliable and affordable information on business planning thanks to a forthcoming seminar announced today by the Member for Malvern, Hon Michael O’Brien MP.
Mr O’Brien said the Business Planning Basics seminar, supported by the Coalition Government, would be held at the Malvern Town Hall, 1251 High Street, Malvern at 5:30pm on Wednesday, April 17 2013.
“Running a small business can be incredibly rewarding, but it is hard work.
“Unfortunately, many budding entrepreneurs with fantastic ideas struggle through a lack of proper planning and knowledge of business skills.
“The good news is that local Malvern businesses can get access to valuable advice from experts through a Business Planning Basics seminar supported by the Coalition Government.
“Malvern local small businesses are an important part of the more than 533,000 small businesses that create opportunities and jobs for hundreds of thousands of Victorians.
Last year more than 3,000 businesses throughout the state participated in Small Business Victoria’s workshops and seminars. Through the program, businesses and prospective business owners are provided with the facts and advice needed to make informed decisions and create a platform for ongoing success.
Popular topics in the program include starting up, financial management, employing people and marketing.
All workshops and seminars are delivered by private sector business specialists who are well-qualified and experienced in small business.
Innovation, Services and Small Business Minister Louise Asher said the Coalition Government recognised the vital role Victoria’s small businesses played in the economy of the state.
“We are committed to encouraging small business and individual initiative, and to creating an environment that rewards those who work hard, save, invest and create employment,” Ms Asher said.
