More than 45 small business leaders and other guests attended a lunch forum during this year’s Queensland Small Business Week in Ipswich on 16 May 2017.

Jobs Queensland and Ipswich City Council hosted the highly successful event which provided local business community leaders with information about programs for small businesses in the region.

The Hon Yvette D’Ath MP, Minister for Training and Skills, Mayor Paul Pisasale and Jobs Queensland’s Chair Rachel Hunter, along with a number of Jobs Queensland Members who also attended the event with small business owners from the Ipswich region.

The small business sector injects $100 billion into the State’s economy, so facilitating an environment for small businesses to thrive is vital to the longevity and growth of industry. There are over 7400 small businesses in the Ipswich local government area and more than half of all Ipswich businesses are in the services sector.

This was another successful Jobs Queensland event providing an opportunity for small business owners to  network and  learn more about government initiatives to support the future of Queensland’s workforce and how small business can play a big role in that future.
