STAWELL - Small businesses in the Stawell area will be able to access relevant, reliable and affordable information on winning government business thanks to a forthcoming workshop announced by Member for Western Victoria, Simon Ramsay.
Mr Ramsay said the Winning Government Business workshop, supported by the Coalition Government, would be held at the Northern Grampians Shire Council, Town Hall, Main Street, Stawell Wednesday at 6pm.
"This is an invaluable opportunity for Stawell businesses interested in gaining contracts with the State Government. It will provide locals with professional business advice to help them position themselves to achieve this," Mr Ramsay said.
Last year more than 4,000 businesses throughout the state participated in Small Business Victoria's workshops and seminars. Through the program, businesses and prospective business owners are provided with the facts and advice needed to make informed decisions and create a platform for ongoing success.
Popular topics in the program include starting up, financial management, employing people and marketing.
All workshops and seminars are delivered by private sector business specialists who are well-qualified and experienced in small business.
Small Business Minister, Russell Northe said the Coalition Government recognised the vital role Victoria's 530,000 small businesses played in the economy of the state.
"We are committed to encouraging small business and individual initiative, and to creating an environment that rewards those who work hard, save, invest and create employment," Mr Northe said.
