This October will mark the seventh annual NSW Small Business month, offering hundreds of events across the state to support small businesses.

In celebration of Small Business Month events for businesses are being held across NSW in person and online, hosted by experts from the private and government sectors, industry leaders and successful small business owners. Many events are also an opportunity for small-business people to come together, connect and collaborate.

In the Myall Lakes there will be free events running such as a forum on the health of your business held at the Manning Entertainment Centre and workshops on supervising your apprentice or trainee at Club Taree. There are online events happening via www.smallbusinessmonth.nsw.gov.au

The theme for 2023 is “My Small Business” which is focused on providing assistance and tips on how small businesses can strengthen their business in seven key areas – branding and marketing, cyber security, business health, ecommerce, current market conditions, resilience and teams.

Tanya Thompson said the month is a chance for the Myall Lakes to also celebrate and support small business.

“Small businesses are the bread and butter of our community. From the cafes and restaurants that feed us, to the physios and gyms that keep us healthy, NSW runs on small business.” Mrs Thompson said.

Shadow Minister for Small Business Wendy Tuckerman said small business is vital to the state, there are 840,000 small businesses, which represent 98% of all businesses across NSW.

“A small business is any that employs less than 20 people – so you if think about all our construction, health and social aid services, mechanics, restaurants and real estate agents – it’s no wonder that they contribute $465.3 billion to the state’s sales and service income,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“I encourage everyone across NSW to get out this month and support your own local small business, and for all small businesses to participate in Small Business Month 2023.”
