Wondering how you can proactively manage your business during the coronavirus pandemic?

As businesses await more clarity on how long the current lockdown will last, there are things businesses can still do to ready themselves for reopening, rebuild or to keep trading during the downturn.

Due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements most of our regular face-to-face business events have been put on hold. Instead, our BizHub Maroondah team are bringing a range of online business events, workshops/webinars to our local businesses, with topics specifically designed to help you through this period of uncertainty.

Local business owners, managers and aspiring business people can now upskill with free, targeted online webinars being provided through BizHub during the month of August.

The series of free Small Business Victoria online workshops will arm you with the tools to help you start, run and grow your business – even in these tough times.
