Digital skills

The online, digital world has changed how we all work and live and it definitely needs to be part of how you do business. Almost 90 per cent of the Australian population use the internet, with the majority of them going online every day. In whichever industry you operate, people are researching products and services online, and comparing various businesses, before purchasing online or in person. If your customers are online, you need to be there too.

In addition, the increased use of digital technology represents both an opportunity and risk to your business. Digital tools and software can help you to run your business more efficiently and cost effectively. However, it is equally important to ensure your digital records and transactions are kept safe from cyber criminals.

Our workshops will help you develop a digital mindset so you can better understand and use digital skills and resources in your business.

Please note: our workshops are open to small business owners in Western Australia only.
