Free online learning for Moreton Bay businesses

Posted: 9am 14 Aug 2020

Businesses looking for expert advice in navigating through COVID-19 and planning their recovery will soon be able to tap into free online learning.

The Business Support Modules will be available online from August 7, covering a wide range of topics within the five stages of business including digital marketing, finance and accounting, protecting your business online, managing staff and more.

Moreton Bay Region Mayor Peter Flannery is encouraging all local businesses to take advantage of the free support.

“The free modules consist of a video presentation, transcript, and podcast so business owners and professionals can choose how and when they’d like to access the resources, anytime from anywhere,” he says.

“Some modules will also have additional downloads and resources made available for further support and Business Moreton Bay Region is also looking to add to this resource throughout 2021.

Why this is happening

“Council conducted a survey in partnership with MBRIT and Regional Development Australia and found businesses wanted greater access to information across a range of areas including business planning, marketing, human resources and small business management,” Mayor Flannery says.

“These modules will cover those business management and growth topics, as well as easy bite-sized information on how to work with us including what suppliers need to know to tender for local work.”

Expert tips

MBRIT CEO Shane Newcombe says the modules will be delivered by industry professionals with decades of experience.

“An initial series of more than 30 support modules will be released from August 7, and the final series of more than 90 modules will be released in September 2020,” Mr Newcombe says.

“Business owners have told us they need support, information and tips on how to navigate their recovery post-COVID-19.

“We’re doing everything we can to ensure they not only survive but thrive by making the most of opportunities that come their way.”

The initiative is delivered by Business Moreton Bay Region, Innovate Moreton Bay, and Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT), and supported by Moreton Bay Regional Council
