Aboriginal business leaders sought
Expressions of interest are being sought for an Aboriginal Business Leadership Program (ABLP) to be delivered in the Great Southern.
Business consultant Paul Morgan, of Betterlink Group, is seeking applications from people interested in taking part in the program. Fifteen positions are available, and recruitment of participants will continue to the end of October.
The ABLP is funded by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and supported by the GSDC. It has run previously in the South West and Goldfields-Esperance regions.
The core objectives of the ABLP are to:
Strengthen Aboriginal business leaders’ capacity and capability to shape and drive best practice local business development
Develop Aboriginal business leaders’ skills, knowledge, confidence, motivation and networks to make sound and sustainable business decisions
Empower Aboriginal people to be resilient and capable business leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators who can harness growth opportunities and support the development of emerging and existing local Aboriginal businesses.
The program features a strong mentoring element tailored to individual participants and their unique business objectives and aspirations. Learning also takes place through facilitated training workshops, and the program may also be linked to units in a nationally accredited leadership and management qualification.
More information and an application link are available through the Betterlink Group website.
