The Honourable Chris Cummins
Courses give clever clues on small business
Small Business Minister Chris Cummins today encouraged SunshineCoast residents thinking about starting up a business to attend a free workshop next Tuesday, 4th April.
Mr Cummins said the Small Business Start-Up Session would help business newcomers to understand, recognise and avoid the many pitfalls involved with start-up businesses.
"Participants will find out about businesses that have performed well and why. They will also learn about the benefits of networking and the importance of taking a close look at their own aspirations and skills," he said.
"The workshop will encourage prospective business operators to properly research their idea and to prepare thoroughly before they take the plunge.
"The session will provide valuable tips on business planning and advice on where to get more information."
Mr Cummins said a second workshop for existing small business operators, Getting the Most from your Business Planning, would be run the following day, Wednesday 5th April.
"This session will make clear the benefits of investing time and resources in proper business planning," he said.
"Participants will also learn about the resources available to help them develop a business plan."
The free Small Business Start-Up Session runs from 9.30am-11.30am on Tuesday 4th April.
The Getting the Most from your Business Planning workshop runs from 6pm-9pm on Wednesday 5th April. It costs $27.50 (including GST and refreshments).
Both workshops will be held at the Sunshine Coast State Development Centre office at Level 2, Commercial Business Development Centre, 12 Innovation Park Way, Kawana.
