 The Small Business Clinic has completed another successful year! Throughout the academic year of 2016/2017, we have:

  • hosted 6 clinics in Highfield campus
  • provided professional advice on business and taxation to 42 clients
  • delivered 3 business seminars, attended by 173 people
  • received largely positive feedback from our clients and audiences, with an overall rating of 96.3%

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and student volunteers of the SBC for making 2016/17 a success, especially consultant Renold Tang for his exceptional dedication to the clinic and the clients. We would also like to thank all our clients, and wish them all the success in their future endeavours!

We look forward to helping more entrepreneurs next academic year!

Unfortunately, we have no scheduled clinic dates for the rest of the 2016/17 academic year. We will resume our clinic service in the next academic year (2017/18), in November 2017.
