Past attendees to the information session said:

Very informative event. I really appreciated all of great practical examples. I got the definite sense that LEO wants to help allocate grants to those truly deserving and in need of them. I came away feeling supported, and pocketed a few valuable business cards too. Thanks!

It was to the point . all questions were answered . I felt listened too. very supported feeling . Its up to me now. Big thank you.

Noel was a fantastic presenter - full of energy, hugely interesting and knowledgeable, and kept the audience engaged throughout. Very interesting content - the right balance of educating people on how to sell on line, versus information about the actual application process. Everyone involved - Gerry, Colin, Rachael & Noel were fountains of knowledge, and give off a hugely positive and welcoming vibe. They make you feel as a small business that they want to help, and that LEO want you to be part of what it does.

The trading online voucher scheme is an initiative of the National Digital Strategy, developed and funded by the Department of Communication, Energy and Natural Resources on behalf of Government. It is being administered by the Local Enterprise Offices on a pilot basis
