Event description

Please note: this event is run by the Small Business Development Corporation for small business owners in Western Australia only.

Business plans provide a strong foundation for your business and can help you identify the resources needed during set-up and operation. This session will guide you through developing a business plan and demonstrates why proper planning is an essential tool for any small business operator.

This topic covers:
  • What should be included in your plan and why;
  • How a marketing plan fits into your business plan; 
  • Why you need a financial strategy; 
  • How a SWOT analysis will help you identify your business opportunities. 

You'll receive a practical workbook that will form a draft plan for your own business, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

This session is for anyone who is:

  • in the early stages of starting their business
  • needs to secure external funding
  • already has a business but wants to develop a plan to clarify their thinking and look for new opportunities.

No previous business knowledge is required to attend this workshop.
