Get the mentoring you need to take your career to the next level and help your community💪🏾

Imagine speaking exclusively with one of the world’s best entrepreneurs or industry experts to get the information you need to take your career to the next level…. Welcome to the Barayamal Mentor Blaze, where you can talk to some of the world’s best!

This is an event for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs, professionals and other community members who want to have a yarn with successful entrepreneurs and industry professionals about your business or career aspirations.

The event is open to everyone – you can be an entrepreneur, professional, student, corporate executive, public servant, academic or looking to scale your small business. This is a unique opportunity to meet 1-on-1 with successful Indigenous and non-Indigenous entrepreneurs, expert service providers, investors and more.

Prior to the event, you are invited to choose your deadly mentors based on what you need advice or help with. The event itself is fast-paced so there’s not much time for too much storytelling – each session is only 20 minutes. Following the mentoring event, you will have the opportunity to also network with other attendees and mentors over refreshments (food & drinks).

Barayamal in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Company Directors and other community and corporate partners bring together a world first for Indigenous Australians and one of Australia’s biggest mentoring events. Don’t miss out on being part of this opportunity!

“Baraymal is effectually another person on your team. And having a strong network of indigenous businesses that you can link in with makes the road seem a little smoother.” – Joshua Creamer, Barrister-at-Law
