Dubbo Regional Council is calling all local businesses to sign up for a unique business development program providing invaluable help and resources to grow and enhance their profile plus be awarded a share of $20,000 in grants and prizes. This year’s program has been developed to ensure all aspects of the program are practical and useful for attending businesses.

The Great Business Program is an initiative of Council supported by Dubbo Chamber of Commerce and Wellington Business Chamber and proudly sponsored by Findex. 

Dubbo Regional Council’s Economic Development Team leader Tim Nichols is excited to welcome International keynote speakers and bestselling authors to make presentations to local business men and women.

“We are looking forward to hosting some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs, through a series of three entertaining evenings and presentations,” Mr Nichols said.

“The Great Business Program will give our local business owners and their employees the chance to meet and network with likeminded people and access resources for things like grant funding. It's an opportunity to develop their business and engage their teams, inspiring innovation and expansion.

“I encourage all businesses in Dubbo and Wellington to take part in the program, no matter the size of your business, including; retail, professional services, home businesses, light industry, entertainment, trade and commercial businesses,” Mr Nichols said.

The registration cost allows businesses to bring up to 10 employees.
