Would you like a better understanding of local data and demographics? Perhaps you’re interested in connecting with people or programs that can assist with business planning? The Hills Shire Council is proud to present our ‘Grow Your Business’ program – designed with you in mind!
WHAT’S ON OFFER?
We want to empower you with the tools to grow your business and make informed decisions – and we’ve developed the following programs to meet your needs.
We can meet one-to-one with you to discuss your challenges and opportunities, tailoring business intelligence to your individual needs. A business visit can also provide economic insights and market trends, act as a point of contact with Council and make a range of economic/industry and demographic information available to assist you with planning and marketing.
We partner with a range of providers and Chambers of Commerce to offer workshops including:
- SMART Start – prepare for success
- SMART Operate – business efficiency
- SMART Grow – plan for the future
- Digital Series – social media and marketing strategies
- Governance Series – tax essentials, record keeping and more
- Sydney Hills Business Chamber Series – networking and introductions
ANNUAL GOVERNMENT EVENT
Our annual meet-and-greet event involving key State and Federal agencies gives you the chance to seek advice and ask questions – all in one place.
BUSINESS PERFORMANCE SURVEY
The Business Performance Sentiment Index (designed and conducted by McCrindle Research) is an ongoing measure of local business performance, conditions and sentiment.
EASY TO DO BUSINESS PROGRAM
This new joint initiative between the Department of Premier and Cabinet, the Customer Service Commissioner, the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner and Service NSW brings agencies, Councils and industry bodies together to make the process of opening or expanding a small business simpler and faster.
The Sydney Hills Local Business Awards celebrates business excellence and provides an opportunity to be recognised.
We can link you with local business networks so you can make connections, share knowledge and meet like-minded business owners.
A newly created initiative, you can now have an online business listing with us and maximise your visibility alongside other key businesses. We also offer a wide range of online resources including business news, events and information.
