Media release | 4 December 2017
The NSW Government's Business Bus is visiting small businesses across NSW to provide specialist advice to business owners looking to become more productive and profitable.
Small business owners in and around Tamworth, Nambucca Heads, Macksville and Port Macquarie can hop on board the bus this week where they will receive independent advice from experienced business advisors.
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Small Business, John Barilaro, said the bus would 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 is part of the NSW Government Business Connect Advisory program which provides small businesses with access to independent, experienced advisors, plus specialists in the digital and creative sector," Mr Barilaro said.
"Speaking to an advisor 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 710,000 small businesses across NSW are considered the lifeblood of the State’s economy. They represent almost 98 per cent of all NSW businesses; employ almost half the State's workforce and generate $47 billion in annual wages and salaries.
“Business Connect is the NSW Government's personalised business advisory service supporting small-to-medium businesses start or grow their business.
“We are investing $30 million in Business Connect over four and a half years, with 70 per cent of services to be delivered to regional businesses.”
The Business Bus will visit the following locations between 9am-3pm:
