group of business and community leaders that are recruited to serve as mentors for the team.
Board members provide advice, monitor activities, assist in the development of strategy and
act as a judging panel in the leadup to the National Conference. BAB members keep Enactus
students informed of current business and community concerns and trends, provide financial
or inkind assistance for projects, critique annual reports and presentations, and provide
networking opportunities. The BAB is also capable of carrying out other duties on behalf of the
Enactus team, which may include holding the team accountable for finances and projects

Company representatives are able to act as valuable strategic advisors for students through
their professional specialisation and general business knowledge and experience. Members
of the business community have the opportunity to personally, and professionally, inspire the
next generation of leaders by providing mentoring support to the team. Individual mentors and
steering committees aim to develop the leadership skills and knowledge base of project
managers and functional managers.
Members of the business community can actively engage with the Enactus team through
running workshops on topics ranging from developing interpersonal skills such as public
speaking, interviewing techniques and professional networking, to developing technical skills
such as financing and project management.
