Indigenous Business Development program
In 2011 BP is proud to host a further 6 participants. The successful candidates spend two weeks with BP Australia mentors, developing their business skills. This program provides the opportunity for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders working in Indigenous owned business enterprises to build on their skills and knowledge to effectively and efficiently manage their operations and to assist with securing commercial contracts.
This program focuses on the developmental needs of each individual and their business and tailors the learning to maximize value. Participants get to test their ideas and business proposals out on mentors from BP Australia in a safe and supportive environment. This one on one arrangement has proved highly successful in converting good intentions into winning commercial contracts within the mining sector.
