Our Consultancy Network
The Australian Business Improvement Centre has been the national provider of consultancy services for a major Commonwealth Government Agency and uses a team of selected consultants throughout the country.
In Queensland, The Australian Business Improvement Centre consults to large Government Departments, as well as small to medium enterprises.
Together with our current consultants we can assist Clients who have several State and/or Regional offices. The Australian Business Improvement Centre is not only able to provide total co-ordination of activities but also understands the logistic requirements of both city and rural centres. This enables us to service Regional Centres.
By choosing The Australian Business Improvement Centre, national clients are able to deal with a single point of contact, and do not have to co-ordinate the activities of various consultants. Where appropriate, programmes can be conducted simultaneously in various Client offices. This co-ordinated activity also enables the AOQ-QLD® to rapidly service any issues that may arise in any State or Territory.
Australian Business Improvement Centre consultants are all currently active in the delivery of consultancies and training associated with the development and maintenance of management systems and other business improvement programs. It is these skills that enable them to identify the most appropriate programme and/or training delivery method needed to match Client needs. We are registered with a number of Government bodies for consultancy services. A list of activities can be downloaded at www.aoq.org.au/PDF/ConsultingExpertise.pdf
Where appropriate, arrangements can be made for training associated with the proposed programme of consulting activity.
AOQ-QLD® has assisted all sizes of companies from a one-person business up to large corporate entities and our Clients come from various sectors of the commercial world.
Some of our clients have been:
