I hope you're ready for a great year in business. This year the Australian Businesswomen's Network programs, publications and webinars are designed to help you, in a structured way, create, plan, implement and work towards real business results.

Each month our themed events and newsletters will build, step-by-step, adding to your knowledge, reach and exposure to good education, inspiration and information.

But, YOU are going to have to put in the time to read, study, collaborate, question, participate in our discussions and training programs.


Here's just some of what our 2010 programs will give you the opportunity to do:

  • Clarify your business vision, mission and plan
  • Determine who your customers are and how to find them
  • Put in place your big milestones for the year
  • Determine the cost of doing business and look at forecasting profits
  • Uncover steps to marketing your products and services and yourself
  • Find the measures that make a difference to your ultimate success
  • Look at what team (virtual or not) that you need to help you create success
  • Implement actions that will get you results
  • Improve your productivity so that you focus your time on what matters most
  • Increase your business knowledge, borrowing ideas from industry experts
  • Master online communication and leverage the internet
  • Innovate and improve what you offer and how you do business
  • Formalise and systemise processes for efficiency
  • Promote your business and spread your message
  • Capitalise on new media and technology
