Shop Small: Sign up for a free business building seminar

You’re the store owner who greets your customers each morning by name. You’re the online tailor who knows when your clients are in for a busy season of weddings to attend. You’re the butcher who selects only the leanest cuts for Aunt May because she has heart problems.

You’re a small business – one that contributes much to the heartbeat of the local community, and one that collectively makes up more than 95% of Australia’s businesses.

As a proud supporter of yours and others just like you, MYOB is taking part in the free Shop Small business building seminars. The seminars will provide you with invaluable opportunities to learn practical and profit boosting business building strategies that work.

The complimentary seminars feature an impressive line-up of speakers including some of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs and experts. These include ex-Olympian and small business owner Michael Klim, chef and restaurant owner George Calombaris, Netregistry founder Larry Bloch, Facebook expert Nick Bowditch, international bestselling author and marketing expert Brian Sher, MYOB General Manager Business Division James Scollay and many more.

We think this is also a great opportunity to meet other small business owners and fellow comrades. Because this is a free event we expect seats to fill up fast, so book your place today. Register for a full day or half day attendance at www.seeuthere.com/shopsmallevents, for either the Melbourne event on the 18th November or the Sydney event on the 22nd November.

The events are just a part of a range of initiatives happening over November, thanks to MYOB, American Express and other sponsors putting the spotlight on you with the Shop Small initiative. Shop Small is all about encouraging Australians to support small businesses in their communities. There’s a range of benefits for you, including the chance to win one of five business makeover grants worth $10,000 each.
