Small business workshops

We offer a range of practical workshops across Western Australia. They are delivered by selected presenters who are specialists in their subject matters and with a background in small business. Workshops in regional areas are delivered by our Business Local service. If you click on links to regional workshops you will be taken to the individual provider’s website.

All workshops in the metro area are currently available free of charge thanks to substantial funding from the Government of Western Australia, however registration is essential.

In light of the COVID-19 situation, most of our small business workshops are currently online. They are however presented live and include an opportunity for you to ask questions, this means that numbers for each session are capped. To ensure each workshop is able to benefit as many small business owners as possible, you are asked to sign up only if you can participate during the whole of the live session. We appreciate that plans can change, so if you are unable to join us please cancel your booking to make the place available for a fellow small business owner. Thanks for your support.

If you’re not sure where to start, visit our workshops overview page.

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