Media Release – GROWING INTEREST IN DIGITAL ENTERPRISE PROGRAM

 Fifty-five people representing 48 local companies have taken part in Council’s Bundaberg Digital Enterprise Program just two months since the workshops began.

Council’s Economic Development portfolio spokesperson Cr Greg Barnes said it was pleasing to see the program become a “resounding success”.

“Interest in the Digital Enterprise Program is growing with January’s workshop full to capacity and classes filling up fast through April,” Cr Barnes said.

“I think word is starting to spread throughout the business community about the benefits tapping in to the digital economy can have.”

He said out of those who had attended workshops and subsequently became eligible for one-on-one professional consultation, an average of 95% of participants had elected for additional mentoring.

More information about workshop dates, times, locations, and topics can be found at http://www.businessbundaberg.com.au/digital-enterprise. The Digital Enterprise Program is funded by the Australian Government and sponsored by Bundaberg Regional Council.

The program assists small to medium sized businesses and not-for-profit organisations to better understand how they can maximise opportunities from greater digital engagement. Bundaberg Regional Council, in conjunction with Gravelroad is working directly with participating businesses and organisations to facilitate group training sessions.

Participants who complete at least one group workshop will become eligible for four hours of one-on-one mentoring.

ENDS
