Media Mentors is here to help creatives find their way in this sometimes difficult, mostly vibrant, always exciting industry.


We’ve been doing this for years in various guises – as producers, trainers, broadcast execs, conference organisers, business mentors – now we’ve formalised it and made mentoring our business.


Above all, we mentor people to create projects, better careers, more confidence, stronger connections and, most of all, lots more satisfying work. Regardless of their career stage.


We also mentor projects, run skills-based workshops and help businesses get a foothold in Australia.  


We work with employers who want to assist their employees and with funding agencies like Film Victoria and ScreenWorks to deliver our confidential services to where they are needed.

Our first consultation is free so get in touch.
