What happens when you get a Chamber Mentor?
Chamber Mentors are dedicated businesspeople who are willing to share their knowledge and time with an aspiring leader who is looking for guidance. When you sign up you are creating an opportunity to make the impossible possible. Providing a wealth of knowledge, skills, experience, and contacts they are willing to share with businesses who are willing to learn.
After completing your application and paying your registration fees you will be matched with a Chamber Mentor that has the skills to understand the industry you work in and/or the challenges you have identified. From there you will build your mentor relationship, you will agree together how often you will meet, once you complete a year you will have the opportunity to continue in the mentorship programme.
As successful businesspeople, the mentors understand the challenges you face as a business owner or leader of your organisation. By providing an impartial view, mentors encourage you to look at your business or organisation with a fresh perspective as a confidential sounding board. Sometimes, this is all that’s needed to identify growth opportunities.
The mentor’s role is to support, develop, and challenge. Our Chamber Mentors can help you to:
- Increase your business knowledge
- Help you develop and implement a strategy
- Maximise your business performance
- Improve your problem-solving abilities
- Build your confidence
- Widen your network of business contacts
If you are planning to develop and grow your business, this could be a very effective opportunity to help you achieve your objectives. Your investment for 1 year’s mentoring is $200 +GST.
”A massive thank you for pairing me up with my Mentor he is an outstanding mentor and an even better guy. We speak every week and catch up every so often, he has really helped with my business especially the marketing side of things.
”Having a business mentor has been invaluable to our business. My mentor Ken Noble was matched really well to me, with his experience in a similar sector to ours. He has incredible wisdom, knowledge and experience, all shared in a kind, gentle manner. He listens well and then offers advice and solutions. We have a few laughs as well! I believe he has been instrumental to the growth of our business.
”Matthew's experience and understanding of our specific industry type, made working with Matthew an absolute pleasure. Granted - there may be many parallels between businesses of all types, however having a business mentor who had previously worked in a similar business model, really helped our company get the most out the experience.
