The inaugural Lithgow Business Accelerator Program came to its end in June 2019. Businesses from Portland to Lithgow attended and engaged with regional business coach Steve Semmens as he shared techniques to get those in the room ‘unstuck’ from everyday business issues in order to learn the skills to quickly propel them and their business, into a successful and sustainable future.

Four intensive workshops were held covering; a business audit, social media selling, customer service excellence and blue-sky growth opportunities. And there was also one-on-one coaching included as part of the Program’s delivery.

This Program is totally funded by Council and is a great opportunity for local businesses to dedicate time to work strategically on your business proposition. Testimonials from the first Program have been excellent. Check them out at our Revitalising Lithgow Facebook page:

The plan is to run the Program again in the 2019/2020 financial year (kicking off in February 2020), so if you have some interest send me an email: Or if you have someone in your business network that you think this Program would suit, please pass it on.
