Findex – Tradie Academy

Find out how we help tradies supercharge their business.

At the best of times, being a tradie business owner is tough and with the addition of external factors such as worker shortages, supply chain issues, COVID-19 and rising prices – it has become even more challenging. At Findex we’re here to help with our tailormade Tradies Academy programme to help you supercharge your trades business.

Join our experts (Jeffrey Broughton, Michael Alexander and Larry Mitchell) as they take you through the learnings they’ve developed from working with hundreds of tradie business owners. Identifying the most common mistakes they see, they’ll walk you through what the top performing trade businesses are doing to avoid these mistakes.

The evening will provide an overview of the Tradies Academy programme, followed by the opportunity to connect with like-minded trade business owners over some beers and food..
