Rural Business Solutions
Wheatbelt Business Network – Business Growth Solutions Program
Designing a suite of growth solution programs, specifically for Wheatbelt based businesses. These programs were devised to bring about real change and positive impact in the way that rural businesses are managed. From concept to implementation, the core themes stemmed from building the capacity of the business owner, which would build the business, which would then build the community. The three programs were targeted at early stage/seed, established and high-level businesses respectively.
