Small business owners in the Mount Alexander Shire have the opportunity to build skills and knowledge during August through two free workshops.

Mount Alexander Shire Council has partnered with the State Government – Small Business Victoria to deliver the workshops that support and encourage local small businesses.

“Small businesses that employ less than five people make up the majority of business types in the shire,” said David Leathem, Manager Economy and Culture, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We want to make sure that they get all the opportunities they can to build their skills, knowledge and networks, so they not only survive but actually thrive during this very challenging time, ,” said Mr Leathem.

“COVID-19 has changed the way many of us do business, and as part of that, these workshops will be online and also free.”

Business owners are encouraged to register now to attend one of the following August sessions:
