Community Information

Hawkesbury Business Skills FORUM
Does your business have the skills for success?

Employee and business management skills are essential for business survival these days and should not be overlooked in workforce development and business improvement. But, is it hard to find skilled workers and fund them? Do you have the time to improve your business skills?

Join us for a new business community forum that will discuss local business skills needs and issues. Hear from employment and training providers and business services about how they can help you address your business skills needs, how to access funding support for skills development, find the right employees, and free up your time by addressing your skills needs. Skills Australia will present a talk on Skills for Prosperity, which will also explain what skills are.

This forum is hosted by Council in association with locally operating business services, business groups and training providers and employment providers who are here to help business survive.

When: Wednesday, 9 November, 2011
Time: 9.00am to 12.30pm
Where: Hawkesbury Trades Training Centre, Richmond High School, Richmond.
RSVP: fiona.mann@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au by Friday 4 November 2011
