    Event description

    Join Zali Steggall MP, and a panel of small business experts for a webinar on Tuesday 30 April as they discuss the challenges and opportunities in the current economic environment.

    Small businesses are the backbone of Australia's economy. However, many are feeling the strain of the current cost of living crisis, much like households. In Warringah alone, nearly 20,000 small businesses contribute to our community. I'm committed to learning more about their struggles and finding ways to provide support. Join our webinar to hear from experts, ask questions, and share your views.
