How businesses can participate
To participate in this unique consulting opportunity, you will need to be available to:
- Attend a pre-set 90-minute session to meet your student consultants.
- Be available over 4–5 weeks for mutually beneficial calls and email correspondence with the student consultants.
- Attend a 30-minute final pitch presentation.
Businesses aren't required to provide a profit and loss statement, but this may assist the student consultants in providing a more detailed and effective brief.

About the instructor
As the creator of the Business Development Clinic, and in his role as Professor of Practice at Deakin Business School, Pete Williams will oversee all the student consultancy teams and instruct them on how to apply the 7 Levers Framework to your business.
A successful entrepreneur in his own right, Williams developed the 7 Levers Framework after identifying the 7 key drivers of profit, creating a methodology any business owner can use to understand, assess and improve each of the 7 Levers for their business.
