VIC/TAS Breakfast: Election Results - Impacts on the Franchising Sector and Small Business in Australia

Election Results: Impacts on the Franchising Sector and Small Business in Australia

After months of speculation, Australians finally know when they will head to the polls. 
Join us to discuss the results.

Australia has voted; with either a new government in play or more of the same, we will discuss what this means to the sector and what happens next. We will be dissecting the key platforms of the new government and what this means to Small Business as well as lead an open discussion on what the first 100 days could look like.
