Training available at the Sunshine Coast with TAFE Queensland

Sunshine Coast

We have a select team of dedicated mentors across the Sunshine Coast region, each of whom has a solid, successful business history. Our mentors have established themselves in a variety of sectors, at different ages and life stages, showing that there really is no limit to becoming a successful business owner, regardless of age, industry or location.

Small business coaching

If you run a business or are looking to launch something new in Caloundra, Maroochy, or any other locale in Rural Queensland, you will have access to tailored advice from one of the highly experienced mentors listed on this page. Each mentor is dedicated to providing hands on small business training, and using their experiences in their own fields to help guide you through to tangible, long term success.

Whether you need someone with particular knowledge on bookkeeping, marketing, expansion, or something entirely different, there is a local mentor with the insights you need grow and succeed.

To guarantee that you receive the right advice, your mentor will give your business a full 'health check' and be on hand as little or as often as you need them. They will come to you at your work place weekly, fortnightly or monthly, providing you with a clear vision of the bigger picture. Our small business coaching service is completely confidential, so you can receive help and advice from your mentor with the confidence that it'll stay between you and them.

More information on each mentor in the Sunshine Coast region is given below.
