The Small Business Training Hub

Sbth Logo Large Jpeg

The Small Business Training Hub was born from a need to help and support others on a one to many basis after observing the lack of group training opportunities for business owners, bookkeepers and payroll professionals, in regards to the fundamentals of business ownership and all that entails.

We are really excited to bring to you courses and workshops delivered in person by our Master Problem Solver, Payroll Specialist and award-winning Bookkeeper, Di Crawford-Errington, along with the support of her team of rock star bookkeepers and payroll experts.

Supporting your journey of enlightenment in a huge range of topics, all in the name of empowering and upskilling you and/or your team to create better businesses.

We are currently developing a series of short courses, workshops and one on one sessions to provide training and education to support your business success. These include but are not limited to:

  • Bookkeeping
  • Payroll
  • Software training
  • Starting a business
  • Understanding GST
  • Know your numbers – understanding your financials
  • Employing staff – what do I need to do?
  • Seven ways to grow your business


Courses are delivered within a private online classroom environment,  with one lesson per week over a period of weeks.  A private online space will ensure opportunities to discuss the weeks lessons and collaborate with each other, and ask questions relating to the lessons which the facilitators will answer.
