"Before establishing 'Kangaroo Tours at Anglesea Golf Club' I felt that some expert advice on the process of developing a sound business plan and marketing strategies would be helpful. The support and advice I received through the mentor program exceeded my expectations and laid the foundations for what has become a successful venture."
- Les Cooper, Anglesea Golf Club

Business Mentoring Program

Have you ever considered how mentoring could support your personal and business growth?

The Geelong Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the State Government and the City of Greater Geelong has developed a suite of mentoring opportunities to suit the needs of the Geelong business community.  

Building on a long history of providing mentoring services, this innovative mix of options has been developed in consultation with leading mentors and can be tailored to suit you and the needs of your business.

The peer support model is proven to help people learn and connect in a supportive environment where you’ll find your challenges are not isolated to you while our 1:1 mentoring will match you with an experienced mentor who can act as a sounding board for your ideas and challenges.

Our focus on your development as business leader could be the best investment your business has ever made. 

1:1 Mentoring

to Guide you to Success

Talk to someone who understands what you are going through, float your ideas or uncover the right connection to help you get the job done. A mentor will listen, understand objectives and discuss the direction you could take to meet your goals.  Tell us your needs and we will connect you with the right mentor to support you. 


Business Roundtable

for Business Owners & Snr. Managers

The Business Roundtable consists of ten monthly meetings facilitated by one of Geelong’s senior leaders. This provides business owners and senior managers with a confidential environment to discuss your challenges and ideas with other leaders.  Feel supported and build a new network of people who can help your business.

These events connect you with Geelong Business Excellence Awards winners who are at the top of their game.
