I run a business and I’m looking for help. How do I get connected?

Step 1

Chat to our team about your business goals and challenges. Click here.

Step 2

We'll provide a shortlist of possible business people for you to connect with, who have experiences to share that are relevant to your situation.

Step 3

Once our team finds you a connection, we line up a time that suits you both and make the connection on your behalf.

Step 4

Use our Business Connections space to have your conversation: discuss, learn, understand, and grow.

No, this service is completely free. You may consider paying if forward by becoming an experience provider in the future!

Once we match you with a provider, we line up a time that suits you both and make a connection on your behalf. If your provider is local, connection is in person, or via video conferencing at our branch @180 The Parade.

Connections are designed to be a one off event. If you both want to continue chatting past this, it’s up to you. We’ll walk away and leave you to your new relationship.

We think the best connections are personal which is why we have great facilities on site to connect - either in person, or if your provider is not local, via video conference within our meeting spaces.

I’d like to be a business experience provider. What do I need to do?

Step 1

Chat to our team about your business experience and why you’d like to be involved. Click here.

Step 2

Work with us to create your business bio and when you’re available.

Step 3

We’ll contact you when a potential business match is identified and confirm a time for you both to meet.

Step 4

Enjoy helping others achieve great things in business and spread the word about Business Connections!

You'll be appreciated by the people you help and have the satisfaction of paying forward your experience and knowledge.

Connection can be in person at our Norwood branch, or we can connect you via video conference, so you can have a conversation with someone from the comfort of your office or home – we make it easy for you.

That’s up to you. It could be a once off, or it could be a monthly event.

No, we need business Experience Providers Australia-wide, so no matter where you live, you can be part of the team.

No, you’re sharing your experiences, not giving advice. To help keep it clear, we have a more detailed disclaimer that you will both have the chance to read and understand before getting involved.
