  • How mentors can help you grow your business and identify opportunities
  • Mistakes to avoid.

You’ll also hear from Jo Burgess, an experienced local Brisbane entrepreneur who has built several successful businesses over the past 30 years. Her own business mentors gave her the insight and perspective she needed to grow and scale her businesses, and played a pivotal role in her success. These days Jo gives back as a mentor herself, and she will speak about the benefits of mentoring as both a mentee and mentor.
