Macleay Valley Local Business Digital Marketing Training Scholarship

Kempsey Shire Council has awarded Digital Marketing Training Scholarships to 62 local businesses. Council received funding from the NSW Department of Industry under the Future Towns Program to carry out the scholarships and has engaged marketing and brand expert, Kirsten Basford, to facilitate the program.

Initially, the scholarships were only available for 30 businesses but due to an overwhelming number of high quality applications, the program has been extended to two tiers.

Tier one includes one-on-one mentoring and two live group workshops for each business while tier two includes two tailored live workshops and the establishment of an interactive ‘private’ group platform via Facebook.
