Networking, collaboration, mentoring and opportunities will be the focus of new monthly business breakfasts hosted by Bundaberg Regional Council.
Each monthly breakfast event will have a specific theme and will be trialled for the remainder of 2023.
The aim of the events will be to assist local businesses learn from, and network with, each other, along with providing a forum for businesses to get updates on various trends and opportunities available in the region.
The schedule of breakfasts, which kick off on 21 March, follow on from the recent signing of the Small Business Friendly Organisation Charter by Council, the Queensland Small Business Commissioner and local chambers of commerce.
The monthly business breakfasts will:
- demonstrate Council’s support for local businesses
- provide a forum for Council to positively promote local business networking and learning
- demonstrate Council’s commitment to building Australis’s best regional community by engaging local businesses in Council industry programs and initiatives
Following the trial, set to end in December 2023, Council will assess the success of the initiative.
