May Business Month is an initiative of the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker District Councils and is designed to raise awareness within the region of the services and training opportunities available to small business at the local level; and to encourage participation as good business practice.

The overall focus for May Business Month is to provide businesses across the region with the opportunity to stop and take stock of where they currently are at in their business journey – and to identify the skills or new information that they may need in order to sustain and improve performance, financial prosperity and overall resilience.


Both councils are dedicated to encouraging and supporting business growth and new investment into their respective council areas, and it made sense that the Council's combined their efforts in providing a program that would provide cross-regional benefits at the local level.

We thank our sponsors for helping us once again, to deliver an extensive professional development program across the hills.
