"If you're looking at starting a Business either small or large I would highly recommend making contact with the Polaris Centre at Mawson Lakes & speak to the friendly staff to find out how they can help you understand what's required in starting a business & offer you their support & knowledge to help you make the correct decisions to ensure you can build a successful business. I've used the services of the Polaris Centre last year after leaving Holden & starting my own handyman business. With their help & guidance I've now secured maintenance contracts with 5 companies & running a business with huge growth potential. The Polaris Centre has helped me get my business started & they can also help you start a business for success."
Daryl French - Frenchy's Fix It Handyman Services Business Owner - Business Fundamentals
"Coiltek has been using the services of the Polaris Centre for over two years. Starting with the Business Fundamentals course & after this became part of the Mentoring for Success Programme. These courses & programs have assisted us in refining our systems & procedures. It's also been helpful with realising the importance of working on the business rather than only in the business. By taking the time to put key areas for business growth under the microscope we've seen new opportunities expand, providing controlled growth & good revenue."
Natalie Michels - Coiltek CEO - Business Fundamentals
"As a new business start-up, Polaris Centre Business Fundamentals Program helped me to secure the government funding; also, their mentoring and digital advice save heaps of money on my website development & marketing promotional strategies. I really like their attitudes towards helping people& businesses. They not only provide value for money service; also, great people."
Sam Sri - 3RD Eye Analytics Founder/CEO - Business Fundamentals
"I have been working with the Polaris Centre since 2008. Through group coaching, mentoring & attending workshops I've completely restructured my business from a company focused around me to a business that operates independent of myself. We've more than doubled our revenue since we started working with the Polaris Centre. I can't recommend their services highly enough – every small business owner needs a business coach!"
