New small business workshops for Melton

Small businesses in the Melton area will be able to access relevant, reliable and affordable information on growing their business at a workshop to be held on Wednesday 11 March 2015.

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.

Last year more than 4000 people participated in Small Business Victoria’s workshops and seminars across Victoria. Popular topics in the program include starting up, financial management, employment and marketing.

All workshops and seminars are delivered by private sector business specialists who are well-qualified and experienced in small business. For more information about other workshops and seminars that are available please visit

Minister for Small Business, Adem Somyurek said:

The Andrews Government is determined to provide the best advice to Victoria’s small businesses, because we recognise the vital role they play in our economy.

The Andrews Government’s Starting Your Business workshop will be held at Melton Civic Centre, 232 High Street Melton, Victoria, 3337 at 6 PM on Wednesday 11 March 2015.

More than 500,000 Victorian small businesses provide almost half of the state’s private sector jobs and contribute around a third of the state’s output in goods and services. Around 28 per cent of small businesses are located in rural and regional Victoria.

Mr Nardella said:

This is a great opportunity for our local businesses to get the latest business advice, so they can maintain a fair and productive workplace.

We’re helping our small and medium enterprises by reducing red tape and capping Council rate rises.
