Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

NORTH Bur­nett Re­gion Fu­tures (NBRF) pri­ori­tises fos­ter­ing part­ner­ships with lo­cal, state and fed­eral government or­gan­i­sa­tions and busi­nesses to help co-or­di­nate eco­nomic and work­force devel­op­ment ini­tia­tives.

An on­go­ing pri­or­ity is a recog­ni­tion that the flow-on ef­fects of the 2011 dis­as­ter will con­tinue to af­fect busi­nesses and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions in the North Bur­nett.

In part­ner­ship with the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil, a sec­ond suite of the 7 Re­silience Strate­gies to Max­imise Busi­ness work­shops will be fa­cil­i­tated in Mun­dub­bera and Biggen­den in Fe­bru­ary 2013.

Run­ning for five weeks, the work­shops are de­signed and con­tex­tu­alised to in­tro­duce to busi­nesses and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, seven strate­gies to com­bat the on­go­ing ef­fects of the floods and eco­nomic down­turn and, im­por­tantly, build re­silience to con­tinue to pro­vide their es­sen­tial ser­vices to the re­gion.

The Mun­dub­bera work­shops will be held at the Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club from 6pm–8.30pm on Mon­days, Fe­bru­ary 11, 18, 25 and March 4 and 11.

The Biggen­den work­shops will be at the Com­mer­cial Ho­tel from 6pm–8.30pm on Tues­days, Fe­bru­ary 12, 19, 26 and March 5 and 12.

Cre­ated and pre­sented by re­gional fa­cil­i­ta­tor Trudi Bar­lett, di­rec­tor of Trans­form­ing Small Busi­ness (from Headache to Heaven), the hands-on prac­ti­cal work­shops are free.

They will equip par­tic­i­pants with the con­fi­dence to im­prove their cus­tomer ser­vice stan­dards, in­crease their turnover, bet­ter man­age their teams and them­selves, set up ef­fec­tive busi­ness pro­cesses, im­ple­ment mar­ket­ing strate­gies that are cost-ef­fec­tive and be re­silient through th­ese tough eco­nomic times.

The work­shops have been made pos­si­ble through fund­ing pro­vided un­der the Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment and Re­cov­ery Package, which is a tri­par­tite ini­tia­tive of the Aus­tralian and Queens­land Gov­ern­ments un­der the Nat­u­ral Dis­as­ter Re­lief and Re­cov­ery Ar­range­ments, the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil and the Bur­nett In­land Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion.
