The Business School is supporting local business through various Chambers of Commerce integrating with local community to provide specialised training suited specifically to local government and business needs.

Phil, The Business School’s Marketing Manager, attended a networking breakfast event this morning at the Canterbury Chamber of Commerce.

The event was to launch Regus serviced offices at Flinders who provide furnished office spaces for small business and large businesses who may need a temporary space.

The Minister for Finance and Small Business, Hon. Damien Francis Tudehope, gave a great speech on how small business can work with Local Government.

The Business School firmly believes in looking at specific needs within local government and small businesses to provide training packages that are tailored to individual needs and the needs of the business.

For example The Business School has recently developed a Financial Acumen Workshop to build financial capability within local government and small businesses.

The Business SChool has also identified an area of need in the Childcare Industry and developed Childcare Compliance Workshops that assist childcare centres in meeting the regulations and quality areas set for childcare centres, in turn helping to improve their ratings. This is a positive for our local childcare centres and families who use their services.

Phil and other staff members are looking forward to future networking events within our local Chambers of Commerce and keeping up to date with other local businesses.
