Digital Advice Roadshows & Pop-up Centres

Pop-up Digital Advice Centres are mobile advice centres that visit regional and remote Australian towns to give you access to digital experts from industry and government who can answer your questions. Pop-up Digital Advice Centres bring the experts to you so that you can conveniently get the face-to-face advice you need to assist in making the most of digital technology for your business.

Why the contribution is important

What businesses have told us: "I’d really like to talk to someone in person to help me understand how digital technologies could improve my business, but as a regional small business owner I don’t have easy access to someone who can give me the advice I need."

    Its ok to a point, however you really need to understand the business first to ensure you are offering them bespoke solutions and really helping them. Help also needs to be ongoing as a lot of small business if they don't have assistance they may start but won't continue as they are busy doing everything for their business

    Helping regional businesses access services is important. I think this is something that could be accommodated through Entrepreneurs' Programme.

    To be clear - I do not think this is a standalone idea. I'm only suggesting that the regional business access be picked up through programmes that we already have. The issue might a more general one about retailing our innovation programmes to SMEs.

    I agree with Kenny. This proposal would have probably be most effective if conducted via a Skype or GoToMeeting style set up where one to one conversations could be had, as opposed to a 'road show'. This concept would probably be most effective if partnered with the Digital Mentor Program. You would need to know exactly what the business was looking for to ensure time is not wasted. Karen -
