Western Australia Highlights Q2 FY22: Innovation at the centre of networking opportunities

When C-Res and BHP worked in collaboration with Austmine to provide networking and informative events for local businesses in Port Hedland and Newman recently, attendees came away with a wealth of information on upcoming opportunities and local developments.

In Port Hedland, pertinent information on a range of topics was presented, including the Austmine Supplier Innovation Program, METS Strategy and advice on how to best utilise the Local Buying Program. Hosted by the Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the event was well attended and proved a very beneficial networking opportunity for small local businesses.

The Business After Hours event in Newman, co-hosted by the Newman Chamber of Commerce and Industry, included an Austmine presentation on the Supplier Innovation Program and METS Strategy, CORE Innovation Hub (powered by BHP) discussed the strategy for Newman’s collaborative working space; and Wirra Hub (now known as Waalitj Hub) spoke about the works in progress in the Indigenous space with building business capabilities and business coaching. It was the most well attended event the Newman Chamber of Commerce and Industry had that year up until that date.
