Capability statement workshop for Burdekin businesses

Burdekin businesses are being offered the chance to enhance their market share by attending a workshop being held on May 14 at the Burdekin Shire Council.

Burdekin Shire Council Economic and Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the four-hour workshop would enable businesses to develop a capability statement, or business profile.

“The workshop is being hosted by the Queensland Government and aims to helps local businesses develop an effective capability statement,” he said.

“A capability statement is an essential tool which allows procurement teams assess your company’s experience, achievements and potential to deliver goods and services.

“This workshop will show businesses how to use a capability statement to market their product or service and how it can be used to accompany tender submissions for contracts, upload on to online databases and when you apply for finance to expand your business.”

Mr Vaccaro said workshop participants also would be helped to write their own business capability statement and be able to upload this information on to the Industry Capability Network database called Gateway.

“These workshops have been held here previously and were very well received by those attending,” he said.

“We need at least six businesses to sign up for the workshop or it will not proceed.”

The workshop will be held in the John Hy Peake Room at the Burdekin Shire Chambers, 145 Young Street, Ayr, on May 14 from 8.30am to 1pm. The deadline for bookings is Friday May 9.

The cost of the workshop is $50 which will include light refreshments and lunch. Prepayment is necessary and a tax invoice will be issued as confirmation of booking and payment.
