How BAA can help your business

Your own Team of Networks

70% of SME businesses are operated by just one business owner. Typically these owners are great at the product or service they offer but can lack the experience, knowledge & skills to be really successful in other critical disciplines and processes that ensure overall success. Our panel of key advisors are experts in their fields who can support our members in the 10 disciplines of business including legal, finance, marketing, HR and more. These experts will provide advice, education, resources, strategies and tactics to help small business owners feel supported and become even more successful.

Be Part of the our Community

Our vision is to have a small business community that is truly connected and can support each other. This community can help each other through the our Forum, sharing information, tactics & strategies that they have found successful for themselves and also offer guidance to questions, challenges and issues. We also offer the chance to share new customer opportunities across our membership not only to help drive leads but support our customers also. Our members can offer discounts to other members for themselves or their clients to offer greater support for each other.

Mentoring & Support

We know that the most successful sports people have professional coaches that help guide and support them to become better each day in their pursuits. The value of a coach, is they have objectivity and expertise. They can guide you through challenges and mentor you for success. Having a full time “coach” can be expensive! Our members appreciate having mentors that are available as they need them. Within our Business HUB, mentoring represents a small part of our collective sharing of knowledge & experience in our community and also via our training portal, information sessions, webinars, tools & resources that we can provide to you.

Our Learning & Success Centre

Many of us stop learning either after school or university. We know that being in business is a dynamic activity that is constantly changing. To grow and adapt, you must continue to learn. That’s why at the Business Advice Agency we have created our own Small Business School. As a member you will have access to over 70,000 training programs, the world’s largest educational resource library. This includes workshops, training programs, podcasts, videos and live events. The resource centre covers every conceivable small business topics that will help make you successful. It’s all online and available 24/7.

Business Success Wheel

Our unique process focusses on the 5 critical functions that all small business owners need, to ensure they get it right for their business so they not only survive in business, but thrive and prosper. These are Grow, Protect, Manage, Market and Sell in their business.

We links all those critical functions to our network of experts like in Finance, Legal, Sales, Marketing, Communications & Operations so you get the right support when & where you need it.
