“I recently attended an Instagram session to learn about how I can better use Instagram in my small business,” said Lisa Luke of Rustic Heart in Surrey Hills.

“It was a fabulous two hours - I went with the attitude that if I just learnt one thing that night, that would be great for my Instagram page, but I learnt so much more! It was a great session with valuable tips to grow my business page on Instagram.”

“It’s a really worthwhile initiative to hold business education in the local precinct - and such an informative session too,” said Jan Jacklin of Reunion Café, Surrey Hills.
