This month I had the opportunity to participate in a round table discussion on manufacturing opportunities for our region – where I was pleased to see that the local food industry was well represented. During this session, it was announced that the next round of the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund will open soon. We encourage interested members to be ‘grant ready’ for this significant opportunity.
We had another fantastic turn-out for our October member event, at Heads of Noosa. Thank you to Craig and the team for hosting us – for another great evening of conversations and connections.
We also greatly appreciate the positive feedback on these newsletters – much time and effort go into curating relevant information and resources for our members, so your input and feedback is appreciated and helps shapes how we can best provide value to our community.
Yours in collaboration,

Planning for Business Recovery
If you’re one of the many businesses recovering from the impacts of COVID-19, the Federal Budget unveiled key opportunities that can be pivotal in helping you on your road ahead. With clarity on the support measures introduced, we discuss how you can approach planning for business recovery, and ensure you access your entitled benefits along the way. Read more about the opportunities here.
Part of carving out your road ahead also includes looking at where you are now – reassessing your business plan and undertaking a business health check. Our team of essential advisors can help you minimise risks and identify all of the opportunities for your business to maximise returns.
