“We believe that small business is the engine room of the economy and the lifeblood of our communities. They will still be here, long after the mining, oil and gas companies are gone.” ~ Bronwyn Reid & Ian Rankine
This is the passion and dedication behind Mining for Business, the brainchild of 4T Consultants directors Bronwyn Reid and Ian Rankine.
Our mission is to assist small businesses get that extra edge they need – including supplier pre-qualification – to become successful, profitable and reliable suppliers to larger organisations.
“Larger organisations” is not just limited to large companies in the resources industries.
Exactly the same principles apply – whether you are supplying to BHP, the local Council, or any other larger company.
After 18 years in business, and often being asked to help other small businesses get established, Bronwyn and Ian set up Mining for Business. Mining for Business will assist you in navigating the difficulties of getting, and keeping, your business systems and processes organised – the number one prerequisite for all suppliers to large corporates – so you can do business with big businesses.
Bronwyn’s own experience, and conversations with the other business owners, highlighted the need for Mining for Business. It became apparent that many small supply businesses face similar hurdles when looking to do smarter and better business with the larger organisations’ supply chains.
They don’t know what is expected of them – what is required to supply to, and partner with, large companies.
They find the compliance requirements too complex, costly and time-consuming to execute.
They believe it is too difficult to get noticed by big companies.
To answer these difficulties, Mining For Business has developed a Supply Chain Business Map. Working with Mining for Business through the Supply Chain Business Map program will help you overcome these problems with our small business solutions. We will show you how to effectively and efficiently deal with the supplier pre-qualification and compliances required, systemise your business keep them all current, and stand out as a best-practice business that big companies will want to work with.

Simplify The Complexity: How to get, and keep, all the requirements in place by systemising your business.
Tell Your Story: How to get yourself ‘on the radar’ of the corporates, with a compelling story to tell.
