Mentor Mornings

Council has partnered with Business in heels to bring Mentor Mornings to Surf Coast. 

Business leaders of the Surf Coast and surrounding communities will gather over four morning session from March to December to provide one-to-one mentoring for small businesses. These people are amazing role models from business owners to government & corporate leaders. Spend an hour one-on-one with them, use this time to ask those burning question, find inspiration or make new connections. These session are completely confidential. There is a focus on women in business however it is not exclusively for women and we encourage anyone who could benefit to attend.
