Small Business Festival Workshops – Chadstone

We simply love small business. We are truly inspired by their courage, their wonderful entrepreneurial spirit and their willingness to back themselves – no matter what. But we also know that small business is tough, risky and has no guarantees. That’s why we’re hosting a special training day filled with workshops to give you the practical tools you need to build a healthy and sustainable business.

The day will run with events from 9:00am to 5:00pm and contain several workshops, opportunities to network with other like-minded business owners and access to our monthly Friday Night Drinks at 4pm! You will also have the ability to work out of our world class coworking area alongside our current tenants throughout the day. Bring your laptop, a notepad and your winning smile along to get the most out of this open day!
