Mas­ter­mind ini­tia­tive to cre­ate Table­lands jobs

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

A NEW busi­ness ini­tia­tive is hit­ting the Table­lands in an ef­fort to cre­ate more jobs.

Af­ter two years of run­ning the Aus­tralian “fran­chise” of the Fu­ture Agro Chal­lenge, a global ag-in­no­va­tion com­pe­ti­tion, STartup and In­no­va­tion Table­lands (ST) has part­nered with the Atherton Tableland Cham­ber of Com­merce to put on an­other unique Table­lands event.

The Table­lands Inau­gu­ral Pur­pose Sum­mit for Busi­ness drew over 50 ea­ger par­tic­i­pants from across the re­gion.

As a re­sult, a Mas­ter­mind Group was called into be­ing.

Mas­ter­mind Group is a cir­cle of like-minded busi­ness own­ers who get to­gether to build trust and then work to­gether to col­lec­tively prob­lem solve around their busi­ness needs.

Group mem­ber Chris­tine Doan said the group is us­ing some very pro­gres­sive and un­usual meth­ods to pur­sue that goal.

“Our best chance at lo­cal job cre­ation is in small busi­ness es­tab­lish­ment, growth and im­prove­ment,” she said.

Not only does the busi­ness owner cre­ate a job, that owner has the best cards for be­com­ing an em­ployer.

“A healthy small busi­ness sec­tor is a foun­da­tion stone of most com­mu­ni­ties, and a sus­tain­able one at that.

“The Table­lands Regional Coun­cil area has plenty of small busi­nesses and some need di­ag­nos­tics and treat­ment to be­come truly healthy and support their own­ers as well as the whole com­mu­nity.” For more in­for­ma­tion about the group see their web­site www.star­tupt­able­lands.org or info@ather­ton­cham­ber.com.au or ring Chris­tine on 0419 656 247.
