Businesses urged to attend seminar

WARWICK businesses are being invited to take off the blinkers at a seminar this week.

Southern Downs Regional Council and AusIndustry will host the seminar on Wednesday evening at the Coachman’s Inn on Wood Street.

SDRC economic development officer, John Randall, said the seminar is specifically aimed at identifying areas for improvement in small to medium-sized businesses.

“Warwick has been lucky enough to get business growth specialist Debbie Crowther from Stratacore as the key speaker on the night,” Mr Randall said.

“Debbie will take the audience through Stratacore’s renowned business diagnostic – The 25 Traits of a Successful Business.”

“Rarely do we get an opportunity in Warwick to have an event such as this, with such high-calibre speakers.

“I encourage any Warwick business people who can attend to do so.”

Warwick Chamber of Commerce vice-president David Littleproud confirmed the value in attending for businesses.

“In these post-GFC times, all business should be looking at ways to sustain growth, manage risk and maximise profits. Next week’s seminar will help in all those areas,” he said.

There will also be representatives from a range of government agencies at the seminar, who will present the latest information on business assistance programs, including funding opportunities for business and product innovation.

The “Take off the Blinkers” seminar starts at 4.30pm, finishing at 7pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
