Launching the 2024 DSA Education Series

We polled members via the DSA Members Facebook Group.  Thanks to everyone who responded.  The poll received over 90 votes (members could vote more than once).

The poll showed that the top four topics that members wanted more education on were:

  1. Exporting 22%
  2. Marketing and Sales 16%
  3. Safety and Compliance 15%
  4. Growth Strategies 15%

So, we have developed the programme to suit what members have asked for.

We hope you find these sessions of great value and support in growing and developing your business.  All sessions will be held online and you can register via the links provided.  We hope to see lots of members there!
