Digital Skills Event coming to the Hinterland

A discounted DIGITAL SKILLS EVENT is coming to Maleny on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on 14 September, 2017 at the Maleny Community Centre, 23 Maple Street starting at 12:30 pm for a 1 pm start.  Ends at 4:30 pm (duration 3.5 hours).

We are excited to be delivering a heavily discounted workshop in the Hinterland soon, in collaboration with Sunshine Coast Council as part of their Level Up program. The workshop has been specifically designed with Hinterland businesses in mind and we have the support of Maleny Chamber of Commerce and Montville Chamber of Commerce who are promoting the opportunity to participate in this event to their networks.We would love you to also share this opportunity with your networks.


The digital age is dramatically changing the way every business operates – no matter where you are based! Even if the NBN is not coming to your region soon, there are alternative faster internet options and ways you can still be enjoying the use of online tools to benefit your business.

Come along to the Sunshine Coast Council’s workshop – Technology Your Need To Know as a Hinterland Business – and hear from local businesses who have already ‘gone digital’ and a local digital specialist who is helping many Sunshine Coast businesses save time and money through the use of online tools. All of the information will be shared in a fun, easy to understand and non technical way.

This 3.5 hour session is designed to specifically help Hinterland businesses learn more about the technology available to them and how to implement it into their businesses. Whether you are an accommodation provider, restaurateur, retailer or other business owner, this workshop is applicable to you.
