Nelson Tasman Business Trust – Find a Mentor

"My mentor has been an incredible asset to our company. I learnt more in an hour with him than I have in 2 years floundering along myself. The best investment I have made. I gained a mentor and a friend."

Corrin Miller, Smooch Natural Products.

Mentors are experienced business people who wish to assist others in business. You benefit from confidential one to one meetings with an empathetic person to discuss your businesses' issues and challenges, and help identify strategies and growth opportunities.

Clients and mentors are matched depending on expertise sought. The service is confidential and available to small businesses providing they employ less than 25 people.

"Having a business mentor has really helped me on many different fronts. I have really appreciated his ideas and feedback and certainly implemented most of his ideas so far."

"Business mentoring was something we dipped our toe into with lukewarm enthusiasm -Was it really for us? The answer was YES in many unexpected ways. It brought us clarity and focus, by providing regular times for reflection, simplification and confidence building."
