PIVOT Program Receives International Praise

14 December 2020

Presented by Blow Your Own Mind, PIVOT is a Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) program funded by the State Government’s WA Recovery Plan.

The program has received international praise through an article published on the Eckerd College Newsroom blog. The article highlights the innovative use of the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile ® (EMP), developed by the Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College, within the PIVOT program.

Lisa Smith, EMP Master Practitioner and Co-Founder of Blow Your Own Mind is quoted in the article saying “This program gives BYOM our greatest reach to date state-wide (Western Australia), and this will be the largest study of entrepreneurial mindset in Australia so far”.

So what does it take to start a movement?
Debra Conrad, EMP Product Director at Eckerd features in the article hoping that this use of the EMP to address the concerns of businesses struggling to find their footing in a pandemic will be adopted by other small business development centres (SBDC), including American SBDCs, too.

Debra, we couldn’t agree more! We are excited to present the findings from the PIVOT program, on the blog, early 2021.
