    • Why attend a capability statement workshop?

    If you want your business to stand out from the crowd and improve your chance of securing contracts, then attending a capability statement workshop is a must for you. Hosted by The Center for Emerging Business, these interactive workshops aim to help businesses develop and prepare effective capability statements.

    • What is a capability statement?

    A capability statement outlines capabilities and skills of your business. It is a tool that allows procurement teams assess its expertise, achievements and potential to deliver goods and services. 

    A capability statement is essential for participating and securing tendering opportunities in government and private sector projects, including sub-contractor work. Ultimately, an impressive capability statement can help your business thrive. 

    This workshop will show businesses how to use a capability statement to market their product or service and how it can be used to upload onto online databases and used to support applications for finance to expand your business.
