Get ahead of the game with Whitehorse Business Week

5 Jul 2018

The popular and successful annual Whitehorse Business Week is on again as part of the Victorian Government’s Small Business Festival and will run from 13-17 August 2018.

Whitehorse Mayor Councillor Andrew Davenport said events during the week focus on factors that give businesses a competitive edge.

“The Women in Business Expo and Luncheon always features a talented businesswoman to share her journey in the world of business, and offer advice and tips for success. This year we have Olympic athlete and politician Nova Peris OAM,” Cr Davenport said.

The week is offered for Whitehorse business owners and staff keen to get the latest word on business, investment and customer service trends, and more. All events are held at convenient, local venues.

“Whitehorse Business Week is a must for leaders of both emerging and established businesses in Whitehorse and the calibre of guest speakers is world class. This is always an informative and entertaining week full of great networking opportunities,” Cr Davenport said.
