The fourth and final Sourdough lunchtime workshop, as part of the popular 2018 small business series, will be held on Wednesday October 31 at the Elements of Byron Resort.

Organisers say marketing experts Vim+Zest will ‘offer insightful and actionable takeaways to help you and your business attract quality leads and convert them into loyal customers and valuable sales.’  

Business insights

‘It’s a perfect opportunity for local businesses to gain valuable skills and insights to help grow their business and get the best out of their online presence. This government-funded workshop is available for small-business owners and their employees at a subsidised cost of $50, which includes workshop, lunch, and invaluable networking opportunities with industry peers.

‘Sourdough Business Pathways is a not-for-profit joint initiative of the Byron Community College and the Sourdough Business Group on a mission to build a strong economic future for the northern rivers region, through education, mentoring and project support. 

‘As the year end is steamrolling towards us, this lunchtime investment will enable businesses to end the year with a swathe of practical skills to generate the right kind of leads ready to hit the ground running for 2019.’   

The workshop runs from 11 am till 2 pm. For more information visit www.sbp.org.au or call 02 6684 3374.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
