Northern Grampians Shire Council's 2016/17 Business Series will come to a close for Stawell this Thursday 4 May. 

The twelve month series which has taken place in both Stawell and St Arnaud on an alternating bi-monthly basis has included topics from motivation to marketing and how to transition your business from surviving to thriving.

 The series has been well attended, as many businesses from across the shire have been involved.  The series has provided networking opportunities as well as insight in to applying tools to encourage a sustainable and developing business community in the Northern Grampians Shire.
