End of financial year, let’s think ahead (plan on a page)
It’s the end of the financial year and time to reset, to budget and to ensure we have our strategy in place.
HunterNet is a big believer in a plan on the page; its simple, it’s succinct and is the driving document constructed through our members that points us in the direction they want us to travel.
We focus on areas that will improve the wellbeing of our members. We want them to grow and to ensure they are positioned to meet the needs of the coming years. We want our members to understand what digital disruption is, to equate the internet of things as opportunities within their businesses and not something to fear. We want everyone to be safe.
It’s another big year ahead for not just HunterNet members, but the region as a whole. It’s a time when we need to focus on the greater benefits working together can bring. Our region is extremely rich in intellectual knowledge that doesn’t just come from our wonderful university.
It’s with this in mind that we have our key strategic areas that we will be focusing on. We want our members to be at the fore of all that is good in our region. With the strategies our members have put in place for us, we can help frame that.
Our key strategies:
• Regular WHS consultation to contribute to WHS issues and solutions.
• Relevance to be maintained by focusing on industry sectors presenting maximum opportunities.
• Understand member’s needs and adjust the value proposition accordingly.
• Target new members that add specific capabilities and increase effective coverage of the region.
• Provide training to members to support business development initiatives.
• Identify opportunities to increase member support and satisfaction.
• Improve internal efficiencies through enhancement of effective systems and procedures.
• Build pathways to export markets.
• Build brand awareness and optimise communication with members, major stakeholders and government.
• Reposition HunterNet/Open Innovation Platform (HunterNet 3.0).
Before start-up was a buzz word and related almost exclusively to the technology world, we had businesses that created, developed and manufactured physical objects that you could touch, feel and admire. These industries are now working hand in glove to turn the soft into hard and enhance the region’s strengths in manufacturing even further.
It’s the continued collaboration between businesses that will keep us all ahead of the game.
There are a number of positives in our region and we want everyone to benefit from all the good that is happening all over the Hunter and Central Coast regions.
Make it simple – plan on a page.
