Queensland’s regional SMEs can learn how to write effective business cases that are more likely to get investors on board at a workshop being offered in Townsville and Bundaberg in June.

The Business Cases in Practice workshop will teach participants how to develop robust business cases, an essential element in making any business ‘investment ready’.

The two-day workshop will be presented by Dr John Sing, a company director and academic with almost 30 years’ experience in finance-related roles.

Participants will spend the first day of the workshop learning how to develop and revise an effective business case.

The second day will be spent developing a real-life business case for one of their own current projects, and meeting one-on-one with experts who can provide individual advice.

Workshop activities will include open discussions and practical, step-by-step exercises.

All material will be presented in an easy-to-understand manner, with content and examples tailored for small to medium-sized enterprises in particular regions.

Workshops will be held:

  • in Townsville on 5–6 June
  • in Bundaberg on 18–19 June.

Registrations are open now and close 31 May for Townsville and 15 June for Bundaberg.

A registration fee of $150 includes all materials and catering over the two days.

The workshops are being offered by TIQ in partnership with UQ Executive Education and Queensland Treasury Corporation.

Providing investment training for regional SMEs is one of the initiatives of the Queensland Trade and Investment Strategy 2017–2022.
