The building commission gives Victorian builders a chance to sharpen business skills

October 2007

The Building Commission will run a free all-day marketing and branding workshop in Warnambool, Swan Hill and Mildura to help Registered Building Practitioners (RBP) sharpen their business skills.

The workshop, which will be delivered by a marketing and branding professional, will provide RBPs with a toolkit of marketing ideas and skills.

Building Commissioner, Tony Arnel, said workshops will be held around country Victoria and will help RBPs gain ideas on how to maximise their RBP status and promote their registration more effectively in the marketplace.

“It is important that Registered Building Practitioners in regional Victoria know how to promote their business to the local community and have opportunities for exposure to industry experts,” he said.

“The workshop covers a range of valuable topics including sessions on developing marketing plans, branding a business, consumer research and website development,” he said.

Len Peters, a builder who took part in the first series of workshops earlier this year, said the session was invaluable.

“I am in my 44th year of building and thought I just about knew it all. But I came away with some great ideas to market my business, ideas that I have begun putting into action already,” he said.

Practitioners are provided with information kits and a range of marketing material including site signs, stickers and client brochures. 

The Warnambool session will be held on Friday, 19 October 9.00am to 4.00pm at the South West Institute of TAFE, Timor Street, Warnambool.

The Swan Hill session will be held on Wednesday, 17 October, 9.00am to 4.00pm at the Swan Hill Rural City Council, cnr McCallum and Beveridge Streets, Swan Hill.

The Mildura session will be held on Tuesday, 16 October, 9.00am to 4.00pm at The Settlers, Mildura.
