In recognition of National Volunteers Week, Business SA would like to thank our highly valued SAYES and Encore mentors who regularly volunteer their time and expertise to help participants build sustainable businesses for the future.
This year’s National Volunteer Week theme Give a little; Change a lot reminds us of the profound impact volunteers have in their communities and in society.
We currently have 70 mentors, many of whom have volunteered up to 20 years of their time to support up and coming business owners.
Participants are each allocated a dedicated mentor who helps nurture and guide them throughout the programs with monthly one-on-ones.
In addition, some mentors present workshops, run study groups, participate in interview panels and business plan review nights.
While participants benefit greatly from the mentoring component, our mentors also reflect on the enjoyment they gain with the exposure to fresh perspectives, ideas and approaches.
Our mentors come from a diverse range of industries including finance, hospitality, retail, information technology, manufacturing, food, wine and agriculture.
If you would you like to be a mentor and help our emerging entrepreneurs succeed, contact Anneliese Powell on (08) 8300 0114 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
We are particularly looking for mentors in the arts and gaming industries.
