There’s a lot of enthusiasm for a new women in trades business mentoring program that started on the Coffs Coast this week.
A group of women representing non-traditional trade areas such as chefs, gardeners, mechanics and sheet metal workers have been accepted into a six month program that is designed to help them gain management roles and/or establish their own trade business.
The initial feedback from the participants indicates that they’re on the right track.
“I’m feeling inspired and encouraged that through the help of this program I will be able to succeed in my business endeavours,” Megan Kellar from the IT industry said.
“I’m getting direction, confidence and focus in interacting within a male dominated industry,” said Tania Myers, Project Engineer with WE Smith Engineering.
“The first session was great, very motivational and was good to meet other women in the same kind of industry,” Lauren Perry from Advanced Metal Industries said.
“I am finding the course extremely helpful. I am actually realising things about myself that I hadn’t thought of before,” said Jennifer Hooper who works in Quality Control in the Engineering Industry.
“I feel so inspired! It’s very exciting to be mentored and guided to help me focus on where I want to direct my business,” garden specialist Samantha-Lee Mihelffy-Hughes said.
Limited spaces are still available for anyone interested in the program.
