Innovation the key for the future of local business

GROWING your business through innovation was the key concept behind a free workshop held in Roma on Thursday.

Owner of Roma's Signasaurus Rolly Frizzell was among attendees to the workshop organised by Innovate Queensland.

"This workshop is basically giving us an edge on innovation,” Mr Frizzell said.

"We are always trying to be innovative and this is just one of the ways we can sort of branch out and pick up some new skills.”

Mr Frizzell believes owning a business in a rural town doesn't have an impact on its ability to thrive and advance in to the future.

"It's about looking outside the square,” he said.

"You've just got to branch out and make full potential of what you're doing.”

Impact Innovation Group facilitator Leanne Wyvill said the workshop will help businesses transform their ideas into action.

"Innovation isn't just about new or clever 'things'. It's about creating value from the way you do business, and just having good ideas isn't enough,” Ms Wyvill said.

"Businesses that innovate are 60% more likely to increase their profits. Employment and training are twice as likely to increase, as well as productivity.”
