2011 Professional Development Calendar for Local Business
If you are a business owner or thinking of starting a business, you and your staff now have the
opportunity to attend a range of interactive courses and workshops (majority are FREE of charge) right here on your doorstep!
The Economic Development and Tourism Unit recently launched its 2011 annual calendar of workshops and seminars designed to assist with a range of matters including business planning, financial management and social media.
In 2010 Macedon Ranges Shire Council’s business networking, seminar and workshop program increased in popularity as businesses realised the value of attending these sessions not only for learning and developing skills, but because it provides a forum for open discussion and business to business networking.
The first Business Networking Event for 2011 will be on Tuesday 22nd March, 6.30pm at Rasputin’s Bar in Macedon with guest speaker Ailsa Page from AP Marketing Works. Ailsa is a qualified marketing professional with over 18 years marketing experience and expertise and specialises in the small business, services and education sectors.
