Businesses looking for advice are encouraged to come along to the regular business development clinics DWC are holding up and down the Coast.
The clinics are open to businesses from all sectors, all sizes, and at all stages of development. They are aimed at helping you gain knowledge, connect with the right people and grow your business.
“The West Coast may be the longest region in New Zealand, but that distance should not impede anyone from accessing business services or advice,” says DWC chief executive Chris Mackenzie.
“To make business services more accessible, and to help promote the strong entrepreneurial spirit on the Coast, our three business development managers will be holding regular business development clinics from Karamea to Haast.”
DWC business development manager Fiona Hill says there are various services and forms of assistance available to West Coast businesses.
“The purpose of the clinics is to help facilitate local businesses to build capability, grow and achieve their goals. Whether it is just an initial conversation about a new business idea, or an established business looking to access business assistance, we are here to help.”
Clinics will be held once a week in Greymouth, Hokitika and Westport. Clinics will also be held in areas like Karamea, Punakaiki, Blackball, Reefton, Moana and across South Westland. Keep an eye on the DWC website (www.dwc.org.nz) to see when a clinic will be in an area near you.
