A not-for-profit business mentoring service has set its sights on growing its service in and around Warkworth.
Business Mentors New Zealand general manager Lisa Ford says the service is working closely with the One Warkworth Business Association to support businesses in Warkworth.
“We are very much focusing on growing the mentor pool in the area so that there is a wealth of local knowledge available to those businesses looking to develop and grow,” she says.
Ms Ford expects growth in Warkworth to continue, particularly with planned improvements in roads servicing the area.
She says there is a need to focus on ensuring businesses are prepared for the extra demand this will bring and in a good position to utilise the opportunities, rather than be overwhelmed by the increased activity.
