New intake for Women on the Go Program

Due to popular demand, the Women on the Go Business Accelerator Program has had a February 2020 intake.

This highly innovative program is run for business women based in eastern metropolitan Melbourne who are seeking meaningful and practical business assistance.

Through a combination of flexible online and in-person delivery, participants are provided with real-time mentoring support, the ability to build lasting networks and strategic ‘big picture’ solutions tailored to their business.

Themes of the workshops, which continue through to the end of April, include:

  • Making decisions that drive profitability,
  • Knowing personal ‘hot spots’ as a leader, and
  • Managing crisis, conflict and change.

Joanna Nugent, an accountant and previous participant, said it’s a beneficial program that provides advice on how to deal with a range of challenges.

“The four on-site sessions were fantastic and it was convenient to view the online training sessions in our own time. One that I really enjoyed was about promoting your business on social media and The Ion Group presenters gave us lots of good advice on what to do and what not to do.

“The recommendation of having a business plan on one page was great. Coming from an accounting background, I would also develop a detailed budget and cash flow forecast.

“I would recommend Women on the Go to new business owners and women planning to start their own business,” Joanna added.
