Grow Local Kimberley supports local businesses, fostering growth, and opportunities through a variety of initiatives. Providing access to relevant information and training, Grow Local is able to help local businesses expand in the Kimberley, as well as nationally and globally. Under the ‘GROW’ pillar of the program the Broome Chamber offers Business Advice, guidance and support for business wanting to expand, grow and scale up. These services are offered on a Tuesday afternoon and workshops are run fortnightly that target topics currently relevant in the Kimberley Business Community.

All workshops are free for both members and non-members thanks to the support of our industry partnerships Inpex and DPIRD.
