Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Philip Dalidakis and Victorian Small Business Commissioner, Judy O’Connell will be guest speakers at the ‘Grow Your Business Together’ breakfast hosted by Warragul Business Group.
It will be an opportunity for business people to network, discuss the value of a combined business voice for Warragul, learn about government support, and ask questions.
The breakfast will be followed by a second event and free information pop-up centre staffed by representatives from a wide range of local, state and federal government agencies.
The pop-up at The Courthouse Restaurant is a chance for business owners to chat one-on-one with agency representatives who can provide advice and answer questions on the spot.
For example, starting a business, employing staff, reducing energy bills, resolving business disputes, or anything else to do with running a business.
The free Grow Your Business Together breakfast will be held at Warragul Country Club on Tuesday 20 March from 7:30am-9am. To book your ticket, go to EVENTBRITE
This event is supported by the Victorian Small Business Commission and Latrobe Valley Authority.
