Inspirational advice for small businesses

If you have a great business idea but want some inspiration to take that first step or you already run a business and want to innovate and grow, the City can help.

Our free City Thought Leaders business seminars offer access to leading small business owners, industry experts and City staff. 

Across the series, notable business owners share what they wish they’d known when they’d started, how they navigated common issues involved in setting up a business, and building a career from a personal passion.

Industry experts will also share insights about development applications, licensing and other types of applications, and City staff will let you know about the multiple support programs offered by the City.

You’ll also have the opportunity to network with others in your field, from those just starting out to successful business veterans. 

See below the list of topics, speakers and dates and register your interest – we’ll email you when bookings open.
