Top opportunity to set your business off on the right path

9 October, 2019

It’s NSW Small Business Month and Gunnedah Shire Council is hosting a workshop to help people get started on their dream business.

As part of an extensive program of events, there will be a free Lean Canvas Workshop presented by Dimity Smith from University of New England Smart Region Incubator on Monday, October 14.

The Lean Canvas Workshop will be held from 10am to 12pm in the training room at Gunnedah Shire Council’s administration building in Elgin Street. It is aimed at helping people with a start-up or business idea to develop a one-page business model so they are ready to pitch their base level idea.

The workshop covers everything from creating a unique value proposition, all the way through to estimating revenue and costs.

All materials will be provided and participants will take home a one-page business model document – their Lean Canvas.

Gunnedah Shire Council Economic Development Officer Emily Wilson said the small business events already held for NSW Small Business Month had proven to be successful.

“Our first workshop – Business Planning Essentials – was held on the first Friday of the month and the feedback from our attendees was that the small group setting allowed their creativity to flow,” Ms Wilson said.

“They also found it useful to talk about their ideas with like-minded people.

“The Lean Canvas Workshop is ideal for people who are on the brink of deciding to embark on creating a small business. We really want to encourage people to explore their ideas and how they might work.”
