Event description


The Southern Business Mentoring Program offers one hour one-on-one business advisory sessions.

As a proactive community health measure in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19), a decision has been made, where possible, to switch the face-to-face advisory sessions with other forms of communication including skype, zoom and phone. Your advisor will be in touch upon booking to discuss a suitable option. The current $20 fee per session will also be waived until 30 June 2020.

Amanda Wood is our General Business Advisor.

Amanda is also available to help your business to develop a strategic response to COVID–19.

When booking an appointment, please state you wish to receive advice regarding COVID-19 strategies for your business, on the booking form under the question "what would you like to receive advice on?".

She is a senior executive, with experience leading state and national business advisory teams, but her clients have also valued Amanda’s practical, hands-on experience in a complex manufacturing services business over many years, as Managing Director. (She knows what it’s like to start from scratch and ultimately grow and shape a significant-sized, market-leading business).

Amanda’s knowledge and practical experience runs quite deep in areas including Strategic Planning, Marketing Strategy, Business Model Innovation, Financial Analysis, Grant Writing, Business Mentoring, Business Leadership and more. She is comfortable and effective working with clients across most industries,

This self-confessed “business nerd” was instrumental in the establishment of a “Business Enterprise Centre” in the South, in the early 2000’s. More recently she worked for several years leading teams of advisers working with larger businesses ($2m to $100m) to grow, improve, or access grants/support. She also recently completed a contract in Southern Adelaide, working one to one with several hundred businesses of all shapes, sizes and industries (on behalf of State Govt and Councils). Amanda has served on a range of business related boards, committees or initiatives, including several significant business grant panels, which have awarded grants ranging from $20,000 up to several million $.

With a strong armoury of professional and business resources and connections to bring to the table, Amanda will help you identify possible strategies or pathways to growth, change or improvement in your business. After the session she can also refer you to specialist advisors for additional low-cost sessions within this generously subsidised program, as applicable to your needs.
