AIMEX receives funding for national marine business seminars

In co-operation with Enterprise Connect, the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) has been awarded a grant to host a total of 5 Seminars to be held nationally in Gold Coast, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth in February 2012.

This series of seminars have been specifically tailored to marine industry business needs. The seminars will be focusing on remaining competitive, increasing productivity, driving innovation, reinvigorating strategies, driving business goals, developing staff skills, analyzing supply chains and combating challenges and issues.

AIMEX CEO MaryAnne Edwards said 'Ensuring survival in 2012 and for the future means taking advantage of every opportunity. We encourage marine industry businesses not to miss out on this opportunity. In addition to the seminar content, hearing what other marine industry professionals are doing to drive their businesses and overcome todays challenges is an invaluable opportunity also.'

The seminars will conclude with networking drinks. They will be a combination of group discussions, power point presentation and case studies.

AIMEX will be contracting Madison Cross consultant Tony Karabatsas once again to deliver these seminars. He is very experienced within the marine export and Superyacht sector but also has good knowledge and experience across other industry sectors i.e. automotive. Tony has worked with a number of marine industry clients and has produced a number of specific reports for the industry.

The seminars have been scheduled as follows; Gold Coast (7 February), Brisbane (8 February), Sydney (15 February), Melbourne (21 February) and Perth (28 February). Information and registration is available on the AIMEX website or AIMEX can be contacted on (03) 9867 6625 or email
