NSW Small Business Month 2020 will kick off on October 1 with a suite of activities aimed to inspire, upskill and bring together local small businesses.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said hundreds of events and activities would be held in local communities throughout the month.
“We have a great program this year which have been designed to help businesses overcome the challenges of drought, bushfires, floods and COVID-19,” Mr Elliott said.
“While the majority of the activities and events will be online this year, the range remains innovative and diverse, with topics including how to leverage social media and how to get your brand online.”
Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope said NSW Small Business Month was designed for small and medium business owners looking to upskill and learn from other businesses.
“This year’s NSW Small Business Month will build on the success of the past three years by collaborating with 219 local councils and chambers of commerce, as well as over 180 festival partners, across the state.
“Festival themes for 2020 include how to manage disruption, future planning, getting your business online, as well as learning all the latest marketing and social media tips.”
This year, both councils and local business chambers were able to apply for NSW Government grants to host events, with up to $640,000 in funding available for COVID-Safe activities and events.
Events for Baulkham Hills include:
