Consultation sessions are held as online video meetings (zoom).  Various dates and times during business hours are available. Session dates and times are available to book via eventbrite.

Zoom allows us to see and hear each other as well sharing screens which can be useful to demonstrate the number of free, online tools that are often shared as part of the session.

On site face-to-face sessions are available at the Cove Civic Centre, Hallett Cove. To request a face-to-face session, book a zoom session and in our follow up communication the date and time can be worked out.

Yankalilla businesses can book in for a face to face session at the library on Wednesday 24 November 2021 here.

Fiona gave me some great marketing advice, via a Zoom meeting. She shared some great tips, and showed me how to do things myself by sharing her screen and walking me through it. I highly recommend her and the Council’s On Business Program.
