COVID-19 is taking a fast an unprecedented toll on our economy that will take years to rebound from and businesses are having to dramatically change the way they operate to adapt to the rapidly changing climate.
The pandemic has had a significant impact on small business, particularly in regional areas, with many financially fragile and needing support and guidance.
In response to this, Business Victor Harbor and Alexandrina Council have partnered with Rural Business Support to provide our members and the local small business community with financial counselling and advice.
Rural Business Support is a not-for-profit organisation that offer free, independent and confidential financial support for small business owners in regional and rural areas that are solely funded by the State and Federal Government.
Business Victor Harbor and Alexandrina Council are holding the ‘Financial Mentoring Workshop Series’ to help small businesses within our community better manage their finances and provide them with the tools they need to move their businesses forward and thrive in the post COVID recovery.
The three workshops will be facilitated by Small Business Financial Counsellor Steven King and are FREE for Business Victor Harbor and Business Alexandrina members. They will cover the following:
Workshop 1– The Importance of a Realistic Cash Flow Budget
