The Small Business Festival is back in 2017 with more workshops, networking opportunities and online offerings than ever before!

Of the hundreds of events to choose from, there are three that we know will inspire you to achieve even greater things in your business.

Festival Roadshow: Learning to Soar with Lydia Lassila OAM

Small business operators in regional Victoria don’t want to miss our standout Festival Roadshow in August.

Olympic gold medallist, mother and successful businesswoman Lydia Lassilia OAM will give an inspirational keynote over a sumptuous two-course dinner and inspire you with her story of how she turned adversity into advantage.

Frustrated with the inefficiency of the cold-therapy products available, Lydia developed a new product, BodyICE, to better support her rehabilitation from sporting injuries.

Join Lydia to learn how having a clear, unwavering vision means you can achieve your goals and take your business to new heights.

Small Business BIG Ideas

Do you want your business to grow? Learn from world class speakers, meet with other small business owners and get one-on-one expert advice.

Speakers Gus Balbontin (formerly Lonely Planet), Dr Amantha Imber (founder of Inventium) and Yvonne Adele as MC (aka Ms Megabyte) will help you discover the latest developments in technology, innovation, and marketing and how you can use them to drive your business.

Although marketing remains a key focus, this year we also look at how your small business can thrive in the era of digital disruption. You’ll be given practical tools to harness the many opportunities that disruption brings to keep your business ahead of the curve.

Women In Business Week

Women in Business Week (14—20 Aug) celebrates and connects women in business across the state: the leaders, entrepreneurs and rising stars who are shaping the future of business in Victoria.

Some highlights of Women in Business Week include Modern leadership for the modern woman (14 Aug), a webinar on women’s leadership, Women in Business networking breakfast (15 Aug), a great networking opportunity and LinkedIn business brand booster blueprint for women (16 Aug), which will help you get the best out of LinkedIn for your own business.
