Headline events for this year include the Logan Business Growth Workshops on 29 May and Logan Business Links on 30 May.
Logan Business Growth Workshops includes 16 workshops from industry professionals, mentors and business coaches. Feedback from QSBW 2018 and from small businesses over the past 12 months have determined the topics delivered at this event - areas where businesses require the most help or have the most interest in have been selected for delivery in these 90 minute workshops. Attendees are welcome to choose up to four workshops to attend during the day, or just attend one. Between workshops light refreshments will be provided as well as the chance for networking.
Logan Business Links connects small businesses to government agencies and local organisations. This will be an expo / trade show style event MC’d by Queensland Small Business Champion Maree Adshead. The format allows small businesses to discover the resources and tools available to them, and provides an opportunity for face-to-face interaction with relevant agencies. There will also be an after-dark networking event between 5pm and 7pm.
