    We can't recommend D'Alton Baker 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.

    The best thing about DBP mentoring is that it's given me clarity and confidence about my business and where it's headed. Working through my business plan has been liberating and it's removed the stress and frustration I'd been experiencing.   I'm now enjoying running my business!

    DBP have been incredibly generous with their advice and time with me. Every session feels like going to business church, it is cathartic and inspiring and you finish feeling like you can take on the world or in my case my accountant, marketing strategy and business plan.

    Mentoring motivates us to "crack on" with things and to achieve results. We can share our ideas and get another perspective on them. It's always nice to know we are on the right track with our business, especially when working alone at home.

  • Mari Bray Ceramics
    As a full-time designer and mum of three children, I don’t have a lot of time to stop and think about my business besides fulfilling orders and building stock for design markets. After each one hour session with DBP, I feel I have a clearer direction.

    DBP helped me through my first Finders Keepers application every step of the way.

    With their prior knowledge and experience of the Finders Keepers Markets, I felt at ease and actually excited to send off my application.

  • Heidi Helyard Testimonial
    The best thing about working with DBP is that you know you have two experienced, knowledgeable and committed mentors to help you with any queries/decisions you have about your business.

    When you work solo, having a sounding board is so important.
