Commercialisation & Growth Workshop – Chinchilla

June 2 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm AEST

How would you like the opportunity to consider different ways of doing business in a calm, methodical way?

Diversification within your business is one of the best ways you can ensure sustainability in an uncertain world. But creating innovative new products or services can be challenging. Too many businesses get stuck selling the same old products, operating in the same old way, and miss out on valuable opportunities for growth.


In the past year we have seen many business being forced to change the way they operate overnight. This workshop will show you how you can do business differently. Incorporating real-world case studies and advice from local business owners, this workshop will provide you with practical tools and techniques you can use to successfully create, market and sell new products and services. You will also learn new ways to structure your existing business, making it more resilient. Discover how small changes can make a big impact on your profit margin.

The workshop will cover:

  • How to create and sell new products or services.
  • Changing the way you do business. How can you change the way you operate to reach more customers, in different ways?
  • Make them choose you. How to create, define and differentiate your value proposition to stand out above the competition.


A successful local business owner will also join us to share their real-world experience successfully changing their business to take advantage of new opportunities.

Join us for this free, half day workshop to learn how you can turn your ideas into profitable new products and services that will make your business more resilient.
