Win Government Business – A $6 Billion Opportunity

Not many are aware of this, but as of July 1, 2022, Queensland Government established a policy to inject billions of dollars into the small and medium-sized business sector.

From July 1, 30% of all Government procurement is targeted for our smaller businesses. This is a $6 billion opportunity!

There’s a problem, though. We still don’t have enough small businesses putting their hands up and announcing to Government that they are ready and capable of fulfilling Government contracts. This needs to change.

At this event, Thomas Pollock from Gov Ready will discuss the benefits of profitable Government revenue streams to SMEs. He’ll break down some of the myths preventing many Queensland SMEs from targeting Government revenue.

He will detail ideal practices to ensure you have the best possible chance to confidently compete against Big Business and secure your Government revenue streams. And with the announcement of Brisbane hosting the 2032 Olympic Games, Government spending across all business sectors has accelerated more than ever before.

Using a Government Readiness Framework, you’ll receive a detailed Government Readiness Scorecard (Gov Ready Pulse Check) and report to help your business better position itself to win Government business. To complete the free SME Pulse Check, click here

Never has there been a more critical time for Queensland SMEs to unlock and realise the benefits of profitable Government revenue streams. Big Business has happily dined out on valuable Government partnerships and contracts for many years, but the small business Government push has well and truly begun.

I met Thomas in late 2020, a few weeks before hearing him present. At the time, I was impressed by Thomas’ depth of knowledge and understanding and his passion for business. This was reinforced when I watched him present to local businesses a few weeks later. The ease with which he could convey his years of experience into easy-to-understand concepts left participants with a sense that they had the tools and the necessary tips for tendering successfully for government contracts. I highly recommend Thomas Pollock and his work on government procurement.

Thomas’s insights and knowledge in helping small businesses open Government revenue streams are evident. He understands what it takes for small businesses to partner with Government and can convey key themes and concepts in very practical and easy-to-understand ways. His presentation to some of our Bundaberg small business community provided real value, with attendees leaving the event more equipped to find and win government business opportunities throughout our region. I’d recommend Thomas and his company, THINQ Learning to all small to medium businesses looking to do business with any level of Government.
