In June there were 29,359 registered businesses in the Campbelltown local government area, providing 49,690 local jobs.
And the number of new local businesses is growing, with 4,016 new Australian Business Numbers (ABN) registered in the area in the 2017/18 financial year.
In such a growing, competitive market it’s more important than ever that business owners are offered the opportunities to find out how to create “wow’’ sales and customer care in their workplace so they stand out from their competitors.
That’s the aim of a free workshop at Campbelltown City Council next Wednesday, September 26.
Participants will be shown the five simple strategies they can use to create a culture in their business where their clients become their fans as well as fans of their business team.
Sales coach and business trainer Darren Wrigley will present the two-hour workshop, which will be held in council’s staff training centre from 5pm for a 5.30pm start to 7.30pm.
“Darren’s passion is to help small to medium sized businesses thrive with higher sales and profit, by making the sales process a real strength in the business,’’ says Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic.
The workshop is one of many free business workshops hosted by council and designed to help local businesses sustain growth and to assist people considering starting a business.
Business owners who are unable to attend the workshop are invited to attend council’s free drop-in business advisory referral service which is held on the first and third Thursday of the month at the civic centre from 9am to 11am.
The referral service runs with the assistance of the South West Business Enterprise Centre.
In addition, the NSW Business Connect Bus will visit the Civic Centre on Thursday, October 11 from 9am to 3pm.
People can book a face-to-face session with an advisor by phoning 1300 134 359 or visiting industry.nsw.gov.au/business connect.
