What our members are saying

I truly enjoyed the day. I found that all discussions went to a much greater level of detail and honest feedback than I'd previously witnessed. The transparency and courage in the discussion was tangible and highly welcome by many.

Geelong Manufacturing Council has been a valuable resource for Boomaroo Nurseries, keeping us well informed of upcoming opportunities for innovation and growth, strategic plans within the region and initiatives taken by like-minded manufacturing businesses. Most significantly, networking opportunities and GMC programs have directly contributed to research and development, and innovation projects being delivered within our business.

Nick Jacometti

Director, Boomaroo Nurseries

Our frontline leaders are able to identify, lead and implement improvement projects. This is a great development opportunity for leaders.
