The South Australian town of Willunga has welcomed the NBN by running a series of workshops that aim to turn local business owners into champions of the National Broadband Network.

The NBN generated widespread coverage when it went live in Willunga in June, becoming the first town in South Australia to get connected to the super-fast, fibre-based network.

The Willunga High Speed Broadband Business Implementation Program – subtitled Connecting your Business with the World – comprises nine modules over three half-day workshop sessions. The program covers topics selected to provide Willunga business people with a step?by?step business / marketing / online development program designed to generate increased sales, profits and brand building.

The initiative, running during July and August, includes five hours of individual mentoring before the workshops and ends with the completion of an initial digital audit and diagnostic report to enable identification of areas for future focus.

The cost, which is subsidised by DFEEST and City of Onkaparinga, is $200 plus GST per business. Participants must be committed to the program and to becoming Champions for High Speed Broadband. For more information, contact Ian Burton, Southern Success Business Enterprise Centre on 08 8326 6511 or
