A clear business plan is an essential determiner of long-term business success – as the saying goes, ‘fail to plan and you plan to fail’. Get the tools, templates and support you need to guide you through the key steps in the planning process and give your business the best chance of success.

3. Understanding marketing

9 October 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Marketing is simply how well potential and existing customers know what your business does. So marketing is not just about getting new customers, it is a vital part of building and establishing your business brand. Develop a marketing action plan to focus your effort and resources in the right areas, including market research, online activities and customer service.

4. Your business in a digital world

16 October 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Do you feel confused, overwhelmed or nervous about taking your business online? You have come to the right place. Whether starting a new business or taking an existing business online, this short workshop will help you make informed decisions about the right online tools for your business.

5. Effective record keeping

23 October 5.30pm to 7.30pm

How easily can you access ‘at a glance’ information about your business to reliably inform important decisions? Good record keeping impacts both your business growth and your bottom line. Unlock the benefits of effective record keeping, control systems and financial solutions to optimise your business profitability and performance.

6. Keep the cash flow coming

30 October 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Even a profitable business can fail if it runs out of cash. Cash flow is the lifeblood of a business because it allows you to pay your bills and be free of financial stress. Avoid running out of cash in your business by learning how to effectively forecast and improve your cash flow, and never get left short again.
