Next Business class Tuesday 08/12/20 6:30pm (QLD)

To network with students and Businesses on Meetup, join the event through here:

Business Class: You are invited to get for FREE what people pay EXTRA for...

Just like an airline – here’s your opportunity to get all the fancy upgrades of Business Class, but at no extra cost.
We aren’t flying a plane though – YOU are flying your business!

Just like flying a plane, a business needs a good base, systems and processes, maintenance, and careful navigation. Bad weather (eg the Covid economy) can see you needing to adjust your course or perhaps change destination altogether.

How do you do this?
What do you need to know?
How do you improve?

Wouldn’t it be great to get the answers to your specific business problems directly from an industry expert?

This is NOT just ANOTHER boring Zoom meeting!
Our industry experts aren’t here to talk AT you – they are here to talk WITH you.

Why the name? Business Class? Check out this article and scroll down to “Ask the Customer in Seat 9C the Right Question”. These are NOT unprecedented times. In a crisis, a business usually wants things done “Right Away and All at Once”.

Our Students

International students in our Certificate IV in Marketing Communications class are currently undertaking the units BSBMKG419 Analyse consumer behavior, and BSBCRT401 Articulate, present, and debate ideas.

Covid19 means they must now do 100% online. Already isolated from the Australian population in segregated classrooms, our students are learning how to connect online and offline with other students, as well as prospective employees, and learn how to do a marketing webinar that is not the same old boring zoom call people have become used to.

Many of the students are already skilled in areas like graphic design, photography, video editing, and are learning how to create and moderate live online events as part of this broadcast.

You can connect with the students on the broadcast and see what they could do for you.
