As Australia’s economy becomes more and more outward focussed, businesses find themselves under growing pressure to play on the global stage; meeting local demand for innovative products available overseas, staying competitive through cutting-edge technology and developing an international focus through teams with global experience.

These pressures are also opportunities to future-proof your business and industry for a global future. As a strategic partner, BBM can help your company or industry to bring that global edge to Australia. You can nominate the skills and knowledge a BBM awardee acquires overseas and brings back to your industry or your business.

With BBM as your partner, you can send your own young and up-coming business talent on a global scholarship to train and bring back the connections, insights and knowledge for your business to thrive as an international player.

What’s in it for you?

You have a talented young professional who wants to apply for a BBM global industry scholarship.

If your first thought is about losing hands on deck in your business, think again.

  • Your young talent is showing initiative and seeking your support as a mentor, not just as an employer. That should be applauded.
  • Your young talent is showing interest in global trends, innovation and sustainability of your industry. What an opportunity to renew your own passion!
  • Your young talent will return full of ideas and enthusiasm they want to share, adding the kind of value no amount of formal training can create.
  • Your young talent will return a more mature, knowledgeable and committed employee. An invaluable asset to your business.

Don’t just take our word for it!
