Regional Development Australia Central West (RDA Central West) recently partnered with Rich Evans, CEO of Central West Media, to host a social media and digital marketing workshop in Forbes.

The workshop, delivered thanks to the support of Evolution Mining, attracted more than 60 people from Forbes, Condobolin, Parkes, Garema, Canowindra, Cowra and Bathurst.

RDA Central West CEO, Sam Harma, said it was fantastic to have such a big response to the workshop.

“To have more than 60 people from Forbes and the surrounding communities attend the workshop speaks to the value local businesses and the community see in effective digital marketing strategies,” said Mr Harma.

“Smart and successful social media and digital marketing is the gateway for small businesses to reach and grow their audience and increase sales. It is also constantly evolving.

“After Rich presented at the Backing Business Forum in 2020 we knew he would be the right fit for this workshop because he is not only an engaging presenter and expert in the field, but is passionate about storytelling and supporting local businesses across the region.

“Small businesses and local organisations are the backbone of any regional community and following the workshop, I hope we will see more business success stories coming out of Forbes and the Central West.”

This workshop was delivered thanks to the support of Evolution Mining.
