The South West Sydney BEC is overseen by a local Board of Directors, ensuring the business operates in the interest of the community.
“I approached the BEC for advice in early 2013 when, after a year of operating as sole trader freelance journalist/content marketing copy provider, I found myself in the position of being offered more work than I could personally undertake. After the initial free consulting session I signed up for the series of six meetings with a business mentor (Mr Bill Parker) and have recently committed to another series of six meetings. I have also attended a number of useful BEC-organised seminars on subjects as diverse as managing the stress of running a small business to using Microsoft products to operate more efficiently.
It is difficult to overestimate the value of the assistance I have received from BEC, chiefly in the form of my wise and personable mentor. Suffice to say that in the space of around eight months I’ve gone from being a frantic, unfocused one-man band with no real concept of how to create and run a profitable, systematised business to someone who has now engaged the services of a bookkeeper and branding expert (both found through the BEC), who now employs (albeit on a part-time, casual basis) one virtual assistant based in the Philippines and three Australian journalists, and who is now earning more money than at any time in his life (admittedly not a huge hurdle to clear for an erstwhile poorly paid journalist but still…)”
