FEMALE founders and women in leadership roles within startups and growing businesses in Central, North, or Far North Queensland will be able to participate in a two-day Boosting Business Masterclass and Business Advisory Service come October.
The event is thanks to Advance Queensland’s Accelerating Female Founders initiative and is being delivered in partnership with Circulanation on the 26-27 October, at the Bolands Centre, Cairns.
Women in businesses across Northern Australia face unique challenges, ranging from digital connectivity to access to supply chains, extreme weather conditions, specialist skills shortages, reduced networks, and limited investment opportunities.
These challenges are further compounded by geographical isolation, making it essential to provide targeted support to empower women entrepreneurs in the region.
Circulanation aims to address these challenges head-on by offering a comprehensive workshop focused on embedding long-term capabilities in businesses.
The workshop provides a platform for participating businesses to actively work on real-world solutions, guided by experienced facilitators and expert mentors.
Circulanation CEO Tanya Egerton emphasized the significance of this initiative.
“We are proud to partner with Advance Queensland to provide female founders and women in leadership in Northern Queensland the opportunity to build their entrepreneurial capability and leverage growth opportunities within their business,” she said.
The two-day Boosting Business Masterclass will be led by Tanya and Charmian Campbell, the two collectively possess over 40 years of experience as business coaches and facilitators across various industries and company sizes.
Their recent involvement in consulting on behalf of Deloitte to businesses across Northern Australia makes them well-equipped to understand and address the unique challenges faced by entrepreneurs in the region.
Circulanation also has a strong commitment to working with Indigenous businesses and corporations. As such, they strongly encourage applications from First Nations business owners and managers.
“We think holistically about how a business creates and captures value – recognising that economic, social, environmental, and cultural value are inherently connected,” Tanya said.
The Accelerating Female Founders initiative offers a transformative opportunity for women in business across Queensland to enhance their entrepreneurial skills and thrive in the ever-evolving business landscape.
