Small Group

Education Workshops

Y(E)P small group workshops are run weekly, targeting specific topics and allowing you to have your personal needs met by our local expert mentors. The events are purposely small, with a maximum of eight attendees. The size allows participants to actively work on their business, and ask the mentor specific ideas for their business.

Our small group workshops often book out. Please only register for events you plan to attend.

We get grumpy (on behalf of those who miss out) when you don’t show up to a workshop.

We are grateful for the support of our local mentors. We schedule workshop topics based on feedback from our clients, however, we do accept expressions of interest from workshop presenters in the region we service. For more information please email

Media Training Workshop @ Y(E)P Cairns
Jun 27 @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Media Training Workshop @ Y(E)P Cairns | Cairns | QLD | AU

When you’re starting your business, what do you think about?  Branding, Social media, Advertising, networking, howto grow your client base and target new markets. All of these potentially cost a lot of money, not to mention time.

Where does the media fit in? How can a journalist help you to get your name or your product out there…for free? Many people are wary of journalists but they can be your ticket to a much wider audience and therefore, client base.

This workshop will cover:

  • Understanding the media.

  • Writing a media release.

  • What journalists want.

The Young Entrepreneurs Project holds weekly small group workshops on a range of topics to help you start or grow your business.
