The last in a series of workshops designed to help build a stronger South Burnett was held at the Kingaroy TAFE campus on Monday.

The all-day workshop, organised by the Red Earth Community Foundation, was led by RuralScope director Jo Eady who flew up from Victoria for the event.

Jo is a former senior executive officer at TAFE Queensland but these days is the director and lead consultant at RuralScope which runs leadership, coaching and capacity building programs.

Four workshops and two study tours were organised by Red Earth with funding from the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Topics covered included philanthropy, social impact and “making change happen”.

Jo’s workshop was focussed on “effective mentoring” and attracted a range of businesspeople, from the South Burnett and north to Bundaberg.

The all-day workshop was followed by a dinner at the TAFE College for participants and the opportunity for more discussions.
