Training and mentoring

The right business training, mentoring or coaching can have a transformative effect on your business performance.

Whether you have a start up or a long-established company, we can recommend a range of specialist expertise across all business disciplines. Your options include Co.Starters, the internationally acclaimed course for aspiring entrepreneurs; the nationwide Business Mentors programme; and regular training workshops.

Our Business Growth Advisors can also assess whether you qualify for co-funding for your training or coaching, with the New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) Capability Vouchers Scheme.

Business Mentors

You can have a dedicated local business mentor for a year, through this national not-for-profit programme. You’ll receive confidential advice from a Tairawhiti-based businessperson with proven experience – ideal if you want tips on expanding your business or need help to solve specific business challenges.
