Berrigan Shire Council’s initiated Business Week activities are taking shape. Culminating in the Business and Environment Awards presentation evening on Wednesday, April 17, the council is finalising arrangements for an array of business-related activities during this period.
This includes several business development workshops covering the following topics:
In addition, Council and Finley High School are combining to run a revamped Earning, Working and Business Creation Showcase on Wednesday, April 10 at Finley Returned Services Club for students who live or come to the school in the Shire who are in years 10 to 12.
The aim of the day is to bring students in contact with workers and business people who have a story to tell about making a good career in regional areas such as ours.
Council is also hosting a Business Women in Berrigan Shire event, which is anticipated to be a regularly programmed event so our business ladies can develop their own business networks to share business experiences and productive ideas together.
It is also anticipated that a group of Tocumwal business people will also organise a breakfast discussion with the theme of making Tocumwal an even better place to conduct business.
Council economic development officer Phil Nunn, when outlining the program, said the event will aim to promote employment throughout the Shire.
‘‘Council will take the opportunity during this period to promote even more strongly the many wonderful businesses and people involved in our local area.
‘‘We hope to continue to raise the profile of the opportunities our businesses have, while at the same time helping them to improve their business management skills and to provide them with even better access to information that will help them in the day to day operation of their businesses and in planning for a vibrant future.’’
Berrigan Council is also scheduled during this business week period to launch a new promotional brochure outlining the opportunities and facilities provided to investors who are contemplating establishing a business in the area.
Mr Nunn, when referring to the Business and Environment Awards, said council is ‘‘very pleased’’ with the quality and number of nominees in most of the award categories.
‘‘The presentation night at Barooga Sporties will be a great occasion, when we can recognise the achievements of so many of our businesses and people involved.
‘‘We look forward to sharing the stories of all of the award nominees.’’
