The Greater Shepparton Business Centre would like to sincerely thank our sponsors, our hosts and all of our local businesses and organisations that contributed to make the Shepparton Small Business Festival such a resounding success.

This year has been our biggest yet with over 400 businesses attending 15 diverse and inspiring events held throughout the month of August.“Empowering Financial Freedom for Women” and “Global Sisters Standing Tall” were two key events held in the Women in Business week.  These events educated women about the importance of financial freedom, achieving wealth creation and standing tall through business.

The remaining 13 events covered a diverse range of topics such Government Grants Briefings,  Flexible Working Arrangements, Social Media Workshops, Common Business Finance Mistakes as well as numerous networking opportunities.

We would also like to congratulate "Your Sold Real Estate" as the face of Small Business here in Shepparton.  Rachael and Rod Seach started from scratch back 2011, when they started their business and have grown from having no listings to now boasting a conversion rate that places them above their competitors.  Their commitment to customer service firmly remains at the centre of everything they do, and Rachael says it’s a big reason for Your Sold’s success.
