Small Business Pulse Special Edition
Small Business Training
Dear Subscriber,

Winter has truly arrived and what better to do on cold winter days (or nights!) than to up-skill your business. In this edition we are launching five new small business training modules, from 'How to Forecast Cash Flow' to 'Developing Core Marketing Materials'. So make sure you take this opportunity to learn something new and start working smarter!

We would also like to send out a special thank you to all those people who came to Small Business Expo Auckland. It was a tremendous success and a great opportunity for our team to sit down and chat to business owners about the issues they are facing. For all those of you not in Auckland remember that there are FREE tickets available through our website to Small Business Expo in Wellington and Christchurch.

Happy reading and don’t forget to snug up warmly over winter.
