Technology strategies lead small business workshops

IN A technology dominated world, local entrepreneurs from shop fronts to agricultural businesses have learnt to adapt their business models to see booming outcomes.

Residents and businesses of Mitchell, Injune and Surat took part in Small Business Week, which provided an opportunity to learn about technology that can assist with day-to-day operations of small businesses.

Maranoa Regional Council hosted the free workshops and covered everything from bookkeeping basics to scheduling and time management apps.

Councillor David Schefe said the sessions were received by the business communities.

"Having Rachel Nixon Bookkeeping and ConnectAg deliver the workshops made for truly local events for Small Business Week,” Cr Schefe said.

"The workshops presented important information to help our Maranoa businesses grow and develop.

"We identified strengths and weaknesses in our small regional businesses and provided helpful suggestions regarding ways to improve their businesses moving forward.

"With our Local Business Star Rating system now well up and running, local businesses across the region are embracing the model so they can display that they are a truly local business.”
