Expert Connection

Dear Limestone Coast Small Businesses,

We know that things have been tough over the last few months and realise that the road ahead won’t always be smooth. But we also know that sometimes a bit of expert advice can be just what we need to help get back on track.  Here at Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast (RDALC), we are working on a new program to assist small businesses across our region recover from the effects of COVID-19 by connecting them to experts for specific advice and support. We are calling this ‘Expert Connection’.

We would like your help to understand which types of expert assistance would be most valuable to you and your business as you continue to adjust to this new-normal. This new program will expand on our current small business support by providing free access to an expert, such as a bookkeeper, accountant or digital consultant, that can provide you with tailored business advice and professional services.

We hope that this program will be able to support small businesses that have been significantly impacted by the pandemic and have not been able to access the professional support and advice they need.

We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to fill out the survey to help us understand the most important things that you and your business will need over the next 3 – 6 months.  We will treat any comments you make in the survey as confidential, however some of the overall themes will be de-personalised and may be used for reporting purposes.  Please note only staff within RDALC will have access to your completed survey and you can choose to remain anonymous.
