Business Local Skills Development Workshops for Perth Small Businesses - An Opportunity to Improve Tendering and Risk Management SkillsIt is hard to believe that we are already in the second half of 2018. Minutes become hours, days become weeks and before we know it, another month has gone by! It is time to make time for your free skills development workshops on tendering, procurement and risk management.
Skills Development Workshops: Small Business Development Corporation's Business Local Outreach Program
At Ichiban Commercial Solutions, we are very excited to have the opportunity to be part of the Small Business Development Corporation's new panel focused on improving education and providing skills development workshops for small business. We will be doing regular workshops on improving the tendering, contracting and risk management skills of small business owners.
When I started my own business, now almost three years ago, I was so excited to start up and run my own business.
Even with my background in business, I soon had to learn that there were many things that I had no idea about and had to learn how to do.
The statistics for small business start ups are dire. 50% or more of small business fail in the first 18 months of trying to make it work. Bootstrapping my own business, I had to make every cent count. If it had not been for amazing initiatives such as the Business Local program, I may not have had the privilege to be here today.
The key for success lies in networking, the ability to access learning and skills development opportunities at a reasonable price and by ensuring that initiatives such as Business Local are supported by as many small businesses as possible.
I am therefore reaching out to you - either as a small business owner or someone who works with small business.
My request is simple, please share the information about these workshops with your contractors and encourage them to attend.
They will benefit so much from it - and in the end, so would your business too.
The workshops are free and a great opportunity to improve the skills of small business. It is an opportunity to give back and help improve the survival rate of small business. Places are limited but we would like to fill every spot and make sure small business benefits from this wonderful opportunity available to them.
So if you could please share, share and share - I would really appreciate it!
Details of the specific workshops are set out below. There are further workshops to be scheduled for September and October 2018 and I will keep you posted on those.
