As a Noosa and surrounds tourism operator or a business that depends on or is associated with tourism, you will know that the last year or more have been amongst the most challenging ever experienced in this region and no matter how small or large your business, survival has become ever more challenging.

We also know and appreciate that you are very busy running your business, possibly some of you working day and night keeping you businesses afloat, but the good news is that help is at hand, with CelticaConsult and Lumenal, two of Australia’s leading management consultancies having joined forces with the Noosa Chamber of Commerce, to help you through this FREE briefing.

No, this is not just another seminar or workshop that simply takes up your valuable time and only creates more work for you, but real, practical help for you in your business, with in this Free Briefing, John Alwyn-Jones of CelticaConsult from his extensive international and Australian private and public sector tourism industry experience, providing ten top tips to help you manage your tourism business in an economic downturn and Alan Whitley, from his recognised market leading management consultant and grants background, giving you an exciting, very valuable and free insight into how your business can access those illusive government grants.

It gets better....... in the days after the briefing, Alan and John, if you wish and for a limited time, will also meet with you and provide you with a free, confidential review of your business and assessment of your eligibility across the around 600, yes we did say around 600, State and Federal government grant, subsidies, concessions and support programs that you can’t afford to miss accessing, to give your business a competitive advantage?

I am sure you will be amazed to hear that an amazing over $5bn worth of grants and support are provided by government each year, primarily to small and medium enterprises, yet we are sure the first question that comes into you mind is why you are not receiving any, with very few businesses aware of their entitlements,……………yet the Queensland Tourism Industry and especially on the Sunshine Coast, is in a very favourable position indeed, being eligible across more programs than any other industry sector.

You will be interested to hear that our recent briefing in Maroochydore resulted in several businesses being given advice and support and securing substantial government funding in the region of $360,000, with around $200,000 already signed off, with the operators receiving this funding including businesses in marine and aviation tourism, accommodation, spas and wellness, tour operations, cycling,  transportation and entertainment….and more!
This funding is a very substantial boost to the tourism industry in the region, with many of these business small and simply not having the time or skills to strategise or manage their business effectively, nor apply for the plethora of government grants available, especially in a downturn, which is where we come in and hence they will survive and not fail.

This level of government funding and potentially, even more is available to businesses in Noosa.

By attending this FREE briefing you will be able to access free tips on managing your business, programs that will help grow your revenue and profits, support to assist you with your business challenge, discover how to secure free or subsidised professional business advice and mentors, where and how you can secure funding for capital investment and also support for development and commercialisation of new products or services
