Wednesday 19 February meet the advisors at a special Networking Event. You’ll get a chance to hear from each advisor and what topics and business tips they can share with you.  The night will also be a great chance to network with other local businesses.  This networking event is free, however bookings are essential.  More information and bookings here.



Book a session and receive an objective audit of your website or ask questions about domains, hosting, different website platforms or analytics.

Alternatively book a session to talk about Google and social media advertising, email marketing or Search Engine Optimisation.

Whether it’s being able to better understand the language and delivery of services provided by professionals or attempting to do-it-yourself, digital marketing is an essential part of being in business today.

The consultation is available to ask those curly questions and help you navigate the plethora of digital marketing options for your business.



Sessions cost $20 and are available at various times and dates. Bookings for the one-on-one, face-to-face one hour consultations with business advisors is via Eventbrite.
