Region UWS to help drive efficiency

The University of Western Sydney has joined forces with Business Enterprise Centres (BEC) Australia, Pinstripe Media, Fairfax Community Newspapers and Netregistry to empower 20,000 small business operators with the knowledge to use online technologies to help drive business efficiency, build capacity and seize new markets. Dr Geoffrey Lee, Associate Dean of Engagement in the College of Business at UWS, has completed extensive academic research in the areas of e-business, e-learning and small business, and prior to joining academia he owned and operated several small businesses. Dr Lee said the program comprised 10 learning modules, which have been developed using well-researched teaching methods from UWS and information from leading industry practitioners. The one-on-one mentoring sessions will be run by the Business Enterprise Centres in 70 locations around Australia, and a national training program will be developed for all BEC trainers to ensure a consistent approach is adopted
