Need help taking the next business step?
Our Business Mentoring Program might be for you...
Whether you are starting out in your career or making changes to your business, having a mentor to lead you in the right direction is invaluable.
At the City of Canning, we recognise that not everyone has access to mentoring opportunities. This year, we are running a business mentoring program and will be sponsoring a number of participants to further develop themselves and their business.
As well as partnering with the Australian Institute of Management WA, Just Start It and Curtin University to provide access to their impressive mentoring programs, this year the City is also piloting two new programs - Plus Eight Sprint and SME Surge.
What does the program include?

The opportunity to choose the type of mentoring you think would suit you or your business needs best

What is the City's role?
The City of Canning’s role in the BMP is a facilitator – matching you (the mentee) with the agency providing the best mentoring opportunity.
The City is responsible for marketing and promoting the program, as well as sponsoring the cost of each successful mentee.
