Isaac Region Businesses to Power into Small Business Week

Crunching numbers and thinking digital will see Isaac region’s local businesses empowered during Small Business Week this year.

Isaac Regional Council together with the Local Buying Foundation will see four influential presenters share their expert knowledge across eleven events.

Mayor Anne Baker said these engaging workshops will equip small businesses with invaluable skills.

“Small Business Week is a great opportunity for local businesses to listen to new ideas, network with others and learn how to make their business more successful,” Cr Baker said.

“The events will be held from Friday, May 25 to Friday, June 1 at Clairview, Clermont, Dysart, Moranbah and Nebo.

“Council is committed to supporting and being a strong advocate for small businesses in our region.

“Our small business owners are real people, who work hard daily and I am excited to see this tailor-made program come to fruition.

“The sessions on offer will focus on improving digital strategies, computer and bookkeeping skills, and identify better ways to connect and communicate to customers.

“There are limited spots available, so make sure you RSVP before Monday, May 21 to secure your place”.
