TTNQ Chief Executive Officer Alex de Waal said the Innovate Your Business workshop would be held on Wednesday May 17 as part of the TNQ Tourism Small Business Development Program.
“It is for current business owners who need to reimagine existing processes so they can add a new revenue stream or jumpstart sales as well as those who have a new business concept to build on,” he said.
“Lead by Troy Haines and Damian Zammit, theSPACE works with key strategic partners to provide a start-up and innovation ecosystem to support business to more effectively turn ideas into reality.
“They will assist attendees to dismantle their current business or new concept and take it along the commercialisation runway by exploring avenues to strengthen and improve business growth.
“Topics covered during the three-hour workshop include idea screening, opportunity development, proof of concept, planning and pitching, raising capital, operating and growth.
The key message for the Queensland Small Business Week is ‘It’s your Time to Thrive’.
The topic of innovation is a priority for the Queensland Government, along with research and trends, people, culture and succession planning, customer experience, going digital and business basics.
The week is a celebration of small business and will give owners the opportunity to learn and acquire new ideas, skills and tools so they can take their businesses to the next level.
The TNQ Tourism Small Business Development Program is supported by the Australian Small Business Advisory Services – Northern Australia Tourism Initiative, an Australian Government initiative. It is for TTNQ member and non-member businesses (or start-ups) that receive a significant portion of revenue from tourism and have fewer than 20 full-time equivalent employees. Businesses and business intenders can participate in as many activities as they would like.
