Economic Gardening “High Growth Business Program”
Posted on March 22nd, 2016
Twenty eight businesses from Rockhampton and Yeppoon are currently participating in the Economic Gardening “High Growth Business Program” [EGP] which commenced last Thursday with a full day Boot Camp.
This is the second Economic Gardening Program hosted by Capricorn Enterprise (and supported by LSC and RRC), the inaugural program being delivered between September and December 2015 which resulted in twenty four businesses graduating.
The Economic Gardening Program has been successfully run in the Illawarra region of NSW for the past 10 years resulting in a growth in business turnover of $35.4 million for regional firms as well as creating an additional 123 jobs across that region. It is designed for companies in any industry and from sole traders to medium-sized firms, that have the potential and desire for high growth. It runs for approximately 3 months, starting with an all day Boot Camp that covers business strategy, followed by 4 evening workshops covering Customer Relationship Management, Financial Management, Digital Strategy and Social Media and Advanced Marketing.
Businesses interested in participating in a future Economic Gardening Program are encouraged to register their interest by contacting Economic Development Manager, Neil Lethlean on –
