We can’t recommend D’Alton Baker Productions enough.

Angela and Renee bring so much experience and knowledge to the table. They’ve been able to tackle anything we’ve thrown their way, helping us create structure to grow and scale. They’ve been our sounding board, eyes for our product development and a support team when we’ve needed it the most!

We are forever grateful to them for their help.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

There are no hard and fast rules to mentoring.

Mentorship is a relationship. Mentors guide mentees through a period of change towards agreed objectives, where the mentee taps into the experience and skills of the mentor.

A mentor has vast experience and skills in a specific field, practice, industry or vocation.  A mentee utilises the value provided from the relationship with their mentor towards their own mission at their discretion.

Mentors provide independent, objective advice whilst summoning reference to their own specific learnings. Mentors assist mentees to make choices.

In a confidential and casual setting, mentorship provides the mentee with a relationship that supports and guides them towards their own goals.

In order to ensure our overheads are kept low, and to continue providing accessible and affordable services, all of our mentoring sessions are held online using Google Meet. All instructions on required software and how to connect are provided to mentees prior to our first session.

This also means we can provide mentoring to all parts of Australia, and additionally we can continue mentoring programs while our mentees travel to various parts of the world.

To begin the mentoring process, you will start with an introductory session with both Angela and Renée.  This session, guided by DBP, is essentially an investigation into you, your strengths and your objectives.  It provides DBP with a clearer view of who you are, what you want and how we can work with you towards the goals you’ve set for yourself and your business.

This process also provides mentees with an insight into what they can expect from mentoring, an opportunity to get to know Angela and Renée, and to find out if we are the mentors you’re looking for.

From that session, DBP provides recommendations on how we think the mentorship process can best support your mission, areas of focus and desired outcomes.  The mentee drives every session thereafter and provides the topics for discussion at each meeting.

Once the mentor has a clear understanding of the current status of the mentee and their business, future discussions are entirely lead by the mentee. In those conversations mentors provide an impartial and trusted source of independent opinion and advice.

DBP works as a trusted and affordable resource to mentees, much like a well-loved textbook or content-rich website, with a pulse.  DBP can guide you, provide honest feedback, suggest methods and give you the benefit of conversational advice, all while drawing upon our experience and knowledge.

This also means we can provide mentoring to all parts of Australia, and additionally we can continue mentoring programs while our mentees travel to various parts of the world.

Contact us today to book in your Introductory Session. We will get back to you within 24 hours between Monday to Friday. You’ll need to provide us the details about your business and we’ll ask you to complete a questionnaire to help us prepare for our session together.

After our intro session, DBP let you know our recommended areas of focus.  All future sessions are lead by the mentee themselves, what they would like to discuss and the areas of the business they wish to focus on.
