Workshops For Start-Up Businesses
In Perth city, the Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) business workshops support people intending to start a business or who are in start-up mode.
The workshops are:
- Business Basics

These workshops are brilliant and worth attending to fill up on the business fundamentals if you are starting out.
In regional WA, there are a variety of workshops to help people start a business that are run by Small Business Centres (SBCs). If you live outside the Perth metro area these workshops are definitely worth checking out too.

Workshops Tailored For Existing Businesses
Currently we are also tailoring business workshops for organisations in the Perth metro area. They extend business concepts learnt in the SBDC and SBCs workshops and Curtin Growth programs. We dig a bit deeper into ‘how to’ detail and teach from experience.
We have a team of talented presenters who are successful business people themselves that have been developing and delivering small business workshops for more than 5 years. We have all lived through the business growth life cycle; some of us numerous times.
As Achieve More Online, in 2010-11 we travelled as a group all over WA from Kununurra to Kalgoorlie to Albany with Federal Government funding.
In 2012-14, we joined forces with Fremantle Chamber of Commerce and Sankhya Consultants to deliver the Melville Digital Enterprise Program (DEP).
We have enjoyed great success with small business audiences due to our simple presentation and honest communication style.
Please contact us if we can tailor a workshop for your business. And let us know if you would like to see a business workshop where you dwell. If we can make it work for your locality, we will.

The program ran over several weeks and was designed to cover most aspects of web design and e-commerce.
It is obvious that all presenters are masters of their trade and the topics and information provided related well to all the participants. Each presenter provided clear and concise visual aids as well as back up printed reference material. A wide variety of businesses were represented by the participants and each presenter took time to answer individual questions to suit the differing requirements.
I would certainly recommend the services to any business needing help and advice.
