7 November 2011
Southern Grampians Shire Council recently conducted business planning workshops for eight local businesses in the Shire.

Experienced business consultant Julie Guest from Business Pathfinders delivered the workshops that aimed to provide participants with the skills to identify areas of their businesses that they need to improve. Participants completed 16 hours of workshops to help develop a practical business plan for their business, followed by 4 hours of one on one coaching to help implement the new business plan.

A graduation ceremony was held at the Hamilton Visitor Information Centre late last month where businesses gave a short presentation outlining the benefits of the workshops to their business.

Southern Grampians Shire Council CEO Richard Perry said, “It is terrific to see so many businesses in our Shire understanding the huge role that effective planning plays for their business. Participants found the workshops to be a very valuable experience to develop their plans as part of the workshop and received great feedback from their fellow participants.”

Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor Cr Bob Penny said, “Judges from the recent business awards commented on the number of great businesses that have a business plan and it is pleasing to see so many business participating in this business planning workshop.”

Council intends to offer this workshop again in 2012. For further information please contact Council’s Business Development Officer, Peter Johnson on 5573 0240 or
