Twenty-four participants successfully completed the You Sabe Business Workshop series last month on their way to fulfilling their business dreams.
Created and hosted by the Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA)Economic Development programme, the workshops aim to equip participants with the business fundamentals they require to launch and grow their business dream.
TSRA Chairperson, Mr Napau Pedro Stephen AM, said the You Sabe Business Workshops are an important service that has great benefits for the local economy and community.
“The TSRA proudly supports the establishment of small businesses through its Economic Development programme as it contributes to the local economy,” Mr Stephen said.
“In June 2019, 24 participants successfully completed the new You Sabe Business Workshop Series and are now equipped with a completed business plan, cash flow and elevator pitch to progress their business aspirations.
“Their achievement is something to be celebrated as it will have positive impacts on the individuals and the local economy by bringing growth, innovation and opportunity to the community.
“The individual commitment and investment from each participant to progress their business dream is commended and acknowledged by TSRA.
“It is small to medium business owners who stimulate economic growth in our region and create employment opportunities for other community members.”
The TSRA will continue to provide ongoing support to all graduates of the You Sabe Business Workshop Series.
The TSRA would like to acknowledge the contributions of the workshop facilitator, Brendan Bishop of Indigenous Business Builders and mentor, Flora Warrior of Saltwater Blue Consultancy Services as well as guest Speakers: Regina Turner of Panipan Designs and Eugene and Roxanne Dorante of E&R Mobile Mechanics.
