RESA March eNews

Welcome to the March RESA eNews.

This month we place a focus on the businesses that service the mining and resources sector. We look at what services the sector needs and why it could be of benefit for your business to provide these services in our latest blog post.

We are also offering a complimentary consultation session to businesses interested in entering and/or extending their business in the sector.  Find out more. RESA will undertake a no obligation, 1 hour, one on one consultation session with your company to give feedback about the readiness to tackle the resources sector.


Enrolment period extended - Don't miss the opportunity to [DEVELOP] your full business potential!

To allow as many as businesses as possible to benefit from this program, we have extended our enrolment period. The [DEVELOP] program will now start on 19 April.

The [DEVELOP] program is designed to take businesses on a coordinated development pathway to provide them with the tools needed to enter and flourish within the Australian resources supply chain. An information session about our Supply Chain Development program was held in February. Presentations are now available for review, please take a look!

Contact us today for a review of your business capabilities within the Australian resources supply chain!

We would love the opportunity to talk to you further about your business potential within the resources sector. For further information or to arrange a meeting, please contact Stuart Hodge, RESA, on 08 7325 8501 with any questions.
