North Coast TAFE's Macksville Campus will be the location of a new
business networking event for local entrepreneurs and stakeholders.
Links2Success: Better Business Skills is targeting people who are
interested in starting their own business. The event is slated for
Thursday 1 September and is being jointly supported by Nambucca Shire
Council, the local Chambers of Commerce and local businesspeople and
"The aim is to bring together those who are just starting out or
already working in business or enterprise, with experts to support the
development of businesses in the Valley," Jill Ashley, Head
Teacher of Business and Employment, Education and Support at
Macksville TAFE told the Mid-Coast Observer. "The format of the
event is informal, with short presentations by the industry experts
and a long lunch designed to allow plenty of time for attendees to
interact personally with presenters and other attendees so they can
ask questions and get feedback about their own business needs."
The lunch will be prepared and presented by some of the Campus'
II Business students who have set up their own enterprise business.
Ms Ashley said locally there was a real demand for people to
understand the ins and outs of running their own small business and as
a vocational training provider, it was TAFE's responsibility to meet
those community needs and expectations.
"Developing these skills also provides people with new
opportunities for entrepreneurial and enterprise activities which
benefit the economic and social development of the region," she said.
