Free Digital Workshops

The Digital Enterprise Program (DEP) is an Australian Government-funded program that offers free training for local businesses and not-for-profit organisations to help them take full advantage of the opportunities provided through high-speed broadband.


VECCI has been contracted by the Australian Government to provide a series of free workshops and business consulting services to small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and not-for-profit (NFP) businesses located in the Inner East/Inner South and South East/Mornington Peninsula regions of Melbourne.


These DEP Workshops are aimed at business owners, directors, senior managers and staff of small and medium enterprise and not-for-profit organisations looking to take advantage of opportunities to improve their businesses through the introduction of high-speed broadband.


These short, practical workshops have also been developed to meet the needs of a diverse range of businesses at varying levels of digital experience and engagement so, whether you are a micro business that is yet to develop a website or a medium-sized enterprise that is looking to utilise innovative technologies to improve productivity, broaden your markets or reduce your costs, we can help.  Workshops available include:
