Small businesses in the Malvern area will be able to access relevant, reliable and affordable information on marketing their businesses online thanks to a forthcoming seminar announced by Member for Malvern, Michael O’Brien MP.
Mr O’Brien said the Go Online: A Start up Guide for Business seminar, supported by the Coalition Government, would be held at the Malvern Town Hall, 1251 High Street, Malvern at 5:30pm on Wednesday, 19 June 2013.
“Small businesses are an integral aspect of life within the Malvern electorate, providing many job opportunities and boosting the local economy. The Go Online Seminar is a great opportunity for local businesses to take advantage of obtaining professional business information and advice on how to start, plan and grow their business.
“I strongly encourage all local small business owners to consider attending this seminar to access current information for enhancing their business development,” Mr O’Brien said.
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 533,000 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.
