Virtual Cuppa Mentors

Virtual Cuppa - connect one to one

As part of our WITH Tas Virtual Cuppa program, some wonderful tourism entrepreneurs, innovators and experienced operators have made themselves available as mentors (or simply a shoulder to lean on) during this challenging time.

They are ready and raring to listen and chat, offering a friendly word of advice or direct you to the perfect person or solution for your area of concern. Their key areas of expertise are listed but all are very kindly available to assist you in any way they can.

If you would like to speak to any of our wonderful supporters listed below, please email us on and we will connect you with them directly. If you're not sure who is best suited for your particular concerns, include some details and we'll see if we can do some matchmaking for you!
