Fremantle Education Centre Business Expo
On Saturday 5 September we participated in a Business Expo at Fremantle Education Centre, utilising all of the knowledge and skills gained in our Cert IV Business qualification. My group consisted of Mackenzie Hope, Natasha Hakizamana, Diana Makuaj and Reigne Payawan and as a group we decided to promote a Perfume Company. We designed business cards, brochures, a website and labels for our own perfume bottles. On the day we went into FEC and set up our stand, we showcased our prototype perfume bottles, our printed brochures and had a computer set up to display our newly built website. As a group we were very pleased with the final outcome for our project and felt confident and well organised. Our lecturer, Ms Mirella Roche-Parker, was also very pleased to see how passionate we were about our product and especially impressed with the website we had created to promote the product.

Perth Party Bus and DJ Hire
My Cert IV Business group collaborated and decided to promote a Party Bus and DJ hire business, which we thought was quite relevant to young people and provided us with an authentic opportunity to be enterprising and entrepreneurial.
We promoted our business concept to Ms Mirella Roche-Parker and many VET Coordinators from other schools, to demonstrate the business skills and knowledge we had learnt as part of our Cert IV in Business qualification. With COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions, it was quite challenging to collaborate, manage the group work remotely and complete all the relevant documentation.
It was very stressful in the week leading up to the Business Expo however we found the two day incursion at school to be very beneficial. We were able to work together and ensure everyone was clear about the expectations of their role. It was a great team effort, allowing us to complete email communications, spreadsheets, timesheets, flyers, business cards, name badges and a website all geared towards promoting our business.
