The DJSIR program aims to equip eligible businesses with fully subsidised, 12-week training courses delivered by renowned educational institutions. These courses cover a wide range of streams, including AI/machine learning, digital marketing, cyber security, and more. Michelle will explain how this program can enhance the skills of workers, contribute to their professional development, and drive digital transformation in the manufacturing industry.
  2. Georgette Godbolt, Head of Sales at Sustainable Australia Fund, will focus on the importance of sustainability and how it can help businesses combat rising energy costs. Georgette will provide practical strategies that can significantly reduce overhead expenses while fostering sustainability within organisations. Attendees will gain insights into the environmental and financial benefits of embracing sustainability initiatives, such as saving substantial amounts of money in operational costs. Georgette will also highlight government-backed support programs, including Environmental Upgrade Finance, that can provide additional resources and funding for sustainable projects.

The event aims to empower leaders in the manufacturing industry with the knowledge and tools they need to future-proof their operations. By integrating digital skills and embracing sustainable practices, businesses can stay ahead of the curve, drive innovation, and create a positive impact on both the environment and their bottom line.
