The business of law can be challenging. To help lawyers access practical support and mentoring, the New Zealand Law Society has formed a relationship with Business Mentors New Zealand. Their experienced, independent mentors act as guide and sounding board for small to medium sized businesses (businesses with up to 25 employees) to help them develop their business potential.
For a one off registration fee of $295 + GST, Business Mentors New Zealand offers up to 12 months of business mentoring. It provides access to 2,000 volunteer mentors, and can match businesses with a mentor who has skills and knowledge specific to their businesses circumstances.
Business Mentors New Zealand has assisted more than 72,000 businesses since it was established in 1991. It is funded largely by patrons from the private sector, with additional support from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.
