WOMEN IN BUSINESS MENTORING PROGRAM

The South West Sydney Business Enterprise Centre Women in Business Mentoring Program offers a series of workshops on important areas of running a small business and provide an experienced business owner as a personal mentor to help participants achieve their business goals.

Workshop topics for the program include:

  • Business Planning
  • Financial Management & Key Performance Indicators
  • Marketing, Advertising & Strategic Selling
  • Technology & Innovation

Participants will be matched to a mentor best suited for their business and will have five hours of one-on-one mentoring sessions. How this is managed (e.g. face-to-face, Skype, phone, email) will be determined between the participant and their mentor.

Mentoring offers the opportunity to discuss any business-related issues participants may be facing. Mentors are successful business owners who are ready to make a contribution back to newer businesses in the area.

Participants must be committed to making a difference in their business and:

  • Own a full time small business or be a key employee wanting to participate in improvements to the business
  • Be prepared to commit to growing the business and achieving commercial success
  • Be prepared to work in group workshops and one-on-one mentoring in this program
  • Be able to identify a business challenge they need assistance with

  • Access to the Business Enterprise Centre services and mentor network
  • Access to government and advisory reference information for small business
