The Women’s Business Resource Centre (WBRC) is offering up to 8 hours with an experienced business coach to help you strengthen your business. You will receive a personalised service - your coach will listen carefully to understand your challenges and your aspirations. Your coach will then work with you to identify ways to achieve your goals. You could get clearer on your goals and priorities, make difficult business decisions, build your confidence, and more.
If you’re interested, please see more information here and contact the WBRC at 7043 0788 Digicel / 76490469 B-mobile, who can help you decide if this opportunity is right for your business.
The WBRC frequently hosts and/or organizes opportunities for businesswomen seeking to grow their business network. These sessions help entrepreneurs exchange business referrals, identify potential partnerships, and build invaluable long-term relationships.
Partner business associations in PNG are also welcome to host their networking sessions at the Center. Please email email@example.com for details.
One of the WBRC's current programs under development is the entrepreneur mentorship program. Business mentors provide the day-to-day guidance and entrepreneurial experience that is developed outside of the classroom. Mentor-mentee pairs are facilitated through the Center, and pairs are given the opportunity to network independently to build a trusted, long-term relationship.
