So whether you are embarking on a new venture, expanding into an unexplored market, or want to build your team, a business mentor can be a great source of guidance and support.
Mentors can give a fresh perspective from an independent point of view and they often have years of knowledge and experience that they can share with you.
They are not there to provide technical advice, counselling or training, but they can give you feedback and suggestions that will help you make decisions. Sometimes just having someone who will listen in confidence to your concerns and give friendly support is helpful.
We play our part to provide small and medium businesses access to trained business mentors around the country. We have volunteers from many parts of our business who offer their time and expertise.
