What previous participants say

"The course webinars, together with the Adviser’s guidance, have given me the structure and accountability

I needed to give some "life" to my ideas. This was helped by the regular meetings, the detailed feedback on

homework as well as the tools and tips given throughout the sessions ranging from legal guidance, practical

marketing tools to rate calculators. In a nutshell it gave me a great structured starting point for my business together

with heaps of confidence validating that I am on the right path with my new journey.”  Nadia Zammal

“I wanted something that suits my needs. The programme gave me the chance to make new friends and learn new skills such as using social media without apprehension – it also gave me hope that I can create a sustainable business despite economic changes. The support from listening to others has been great and I leave sessions feeling inspired and energised to do things and the tasks or 'homework' kept me focused and guided.” Placida Ojinnaka

“I am so grateful for the opportunity be on the course and all I have gained from the webinars. The one to one advice session with the Business Adviser topped it, as I now have a much clearer knowledge of where I am going. All the help and support I got with my event management venture was really valuable – and thanks to the Business Adviser for taking the time to reboot my motivation!”  Noalline Osbourne
