Small and medium business owners and managers in Yarraman and Cooyar have been invited to take advantage of subsidised training courses starting in December designed to improve business skills and digital marketing expertise.

Toowoomba Mayor Paul Antonio said Council was pleased to partner with TAFE Queensland and DMS Creative to fund the delivery of the “Build a Better Business Program” and the “Digital Marketing Mentoring Program”.

“Council is committed to supporting small business operators by offering access to effective programs that are designed to offer tailored advice for their operations,” Mayor Antonio said.

“Small and medium businesses are significant employers across the region and Council is determined to help business owners and managers improve their business skills and sharpen their marketing techniques to boost their profile and turnover.”

The new courses are:

  • Build a Better Business Program – Expert business mentors will guide business owners through critical periods of business development through workshops and mentoring. They will arm owners with the knowledge, skills and confidence that is needed to clarify ideas and move into the next stage of business growth.
  • Digital Marketing Mentoring Program – This is targeted at established business owners who are looking at ways to use digital marketing to seek and attract new clients and find more efficient service delivery methods.

The courses are fully subsidised by the TRC.

To be eligible for either program, prospective participants must live in the Toowoomba Region, have a minimum 12 months’ experience in owning or managing a business (or be prepared to do so), and undergo an interview and review of selection criteria.
