Two work­shops are com­ing up

Whitsunday Times - - BUSINESS -

THE Air­lie Beach Cham­ber of Com­merce com­mit­tee has been very busy over the last nine months with weekly meet­ings and a lot go­ing on be­hind the scenes.

The big-pic­ture mo­ments for me have been get­ting the cham­ber work­ing ef­fi­ciently with lo­cal coun­cil, WMDL and all the lo­cal vol­un­teer groups and fes­ti­val com­mit­tees.

We all want the same thing – for the Whit­sun­days to be a vi­brant, self-ful­fill­ing place with a pow­er­ing busi­ness com­mu­nity.

We have also met with the vol­un­teer cruise ship am­bas­sadors and with the help of our mem­bers cre­ated a coupon flyer, in­clud­ing a map, to be handed out to all pas­sen­gers en­cour­ag­ing them to shop in our mem­bers’ busi­nesses.

Feed­back so far has been mixed but over­all more pos­i­tive than not.

We in­tend to im­prove this over time to a larger for­mat so watch this space.

Our re­cent speed net­work­ing night at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel re­ceived pos­i­tive feed­back.

Thank you to John O’Neill and the crew for host­ing this for us.

As our mem­bers would know there are two work­shops com­ing up.

A work­shop on ten­der­ing for busi­ness is on June 18 and a date for a grant writ­ing work­shop will soon be ad­vised.

This will be open to all lo­cal sport­ing and events com­mit­tees.

We are ask­ing for ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est for a work­shop for writ­ing ca­pa­bil­ity state­ments for busi­nesses.

Ca­pa­bil­ity state­ments are vi­tal in show­ing the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of your busi­ness and will put you well ahead of your com­peti­tors from the start.

Please email info@air­lie beachcham­ber.com.au to ex­press your in­ter­est in the work­shop.
