Busi­ness bus boost

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - BETTER BUSINESS -

SMALL busi­ness own­ers on the Coffs Coast have the op­por­tu­nity to re­ceive in­de­pen­dent ad­vice from ex­pe­ri­enced busi­ness ad­vis­ers by hop­ping on board the NSW Gov­ern­ment’s Busi­ness Bus on Fri­day.

Mem­ber for Coffs Har­bour An­drew Fraser said in 2017 the Busi­ness Bus vis­ited more than 160 towns, around the state, cover­ing more than 56,000km, and this year is set to be even big­ger.

“The Busi­ness Bus is part of the NSW Gov­ern­ment’s multi-mil­lion dol­lar Busi­ness Con­nect pro­gram which sup­ports small busi­nesses to thrive in met­ro­pol­i­tan and re­gional economies,” Mr Fraser said.

“The bus will travel across the state with ex­perts on board to share ad­vice on small busi­ness strate­gies in­clud­ing mar­ket­ing, fi­nan­cial and le­gal ad­vice and busi­ness plan­ning.

“The Busi­ness Bus pro­vides small busi­nesses with ac­cess to in­de­pen­dent, ex­pe­ri­enced ad­vis­ers, plus spe­cial­ists in the dig­i­tal and creative sec­tor.

“Speak­ing to an ad­viser can help a busi­ness op­er­a­tor take the vi­tal next step, whether they’re just start­ing out, want­ing to en­sure their busi­ness is sus­tain­able or aim­ing to go global.”

The Busi­ness Bus will be in Coffs Har­bour City Square between 9am and 3pm on Fri­day.
