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 hello@yepcairns.com
