What is Stretton Connect?

Stretton Connect is a multi-faceted approach to business support and economic development, incorporating events, workshops and programs. Stretton Connect aims to bring businesses together to inform, upskill and build on the existing strengths of our business community for empowered, competitive business.

Responses from the City of Playford’s annual Business Satisfaction survey were clear about one thing – our local businesses want more engagement, more opportunity to have their say, more access to quality training and workshops, and more networking events.

From this feedback the team at the Stretton Centre developed Stretton Connect, a series of high quality programs that will suit business owners and professionals at varying stages of their business journey.
