Tools to help you grow your small business

Expressions of interest are closing soon for council’s new Economic Gardening Program which will give Campbelltown’s business owners some of the tools and guidance they need to scale their business upwards and to grow their venture beyond our region.

The five-part facilitated workshop program is structured with a coaching component to help businesses grow from within.

The free program begins with a one day boot camp on Wednesday, March 20 which will help business owners identify any gaps and weakness in their business.

These will be factors such as the nature of their product or service, their competitive advantage, target markets and how to conduct effective market research and identify useful data resources.

The four remaining workshops will cover customer relationship management, financial management, digital strategy and social media and advanced marketing and innovation.

These workshops will be held in the evenings between Wednesday, April 3 and June 12.

Selected businesses in the program will then have the opportunity to receive one-on-one coaching from business consultants and mentorship to identify, assess and then address the issues currently impeding their business from further success.

Places in the Economic Gardening Program are limited, so registration is essential.

Active participation is required in all workshops and only applicants who can commit to attending all five workshops should apply.

Expressions of interest close on Thursday, February 28 and successful businesses will be notified in early March.

  • Council Camden is inviting local industry and business stakeholders to take part in an upcoming workshop exploring the future opportunities for the productivity of the Camden region.

Council is undertaking a review of its planning framework, including the Local Environment Plan, and preparing a Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) which will establish planning priorities for the next two decades.

As council sets the 20 year planning vision for the land use and characteristics of the Camden local government area (LGA), they want to hear from businesses and industry groups to understand how the LSPS can help to positively shape Camden’s economy as the area changes.

The sessions will include interactive activities and group discussions themed around the future of infrastructure, centres and jobs, land use and rural economy, and tourism.

The workshop will be on Wednesday, February 27,6pm to 8pm in the Camden Council administration building at Oran Park.
