We help you cut through the overwhelm with affordable solutions
Wherever you are located in Australia, Navii will support you to grow your small business without wasting time and money on mistakes and false starts.
Dear small business owner, dear small business supporter,
Since 2007, the team behind Navii has helped 7,245 small business people get unbiased digital advice in Australia and around the world.
We have developed, run and digitised 334 workshops and lost track of the number of personalised coaching sessions we have delivered.
Most importantly, over the last 13 years we have steadily built a network of digital professionals whom we trust to provide help and advice to those who want to take the next best step to grow their business in the digital age. We have also turned away many cowboys who knocked on our door wanting us to share their ‘special offers’ with our community.
You’re looking for advice and insight and may not know how to make all your digital assets and your team work in harmony. You want to work with experts and your time is valuable.
This is why we have created Navii, with services that suit the needs of those who do not have all the marketing and technology expertise they need on their team and are seeking cost effective solutions to grow their digital skills and engage experts to do things for them.
Cut through the overwhelm and get started.
It's FREE and as easy as 1-2-3

The Empowering Business to Go Digital program (which we affectionately named Navii) is a key outcome of Australia’s Federal Government’s Small Business Digital Taskforce report. Read Minister Andrew’s media release here.
Values we stand by
Meet the founders
Founders Liz Ward and Fabienne Wintle are small business practitioners and digital strategists who exceed in their field of empowering business owners and their staff to make the most of digital technology in their business ventures.
They are passionate advocates for digital self-sufficiency within businesses and their practical no-jargon approach has enabled thousands of small and large business owners with the tools and knowledge to make a living from doing what they love in their own businesses.
A history of empowering small businesses
Liz & Fabie’s spirits led them to create the award-winning online learning and support platform TourismTribe.com in 2015 to address the diverse needs of an industry that is made up of small and micro businesses spread across the country in some of the most remote regions. Tourism is an industry of industries with business types that range from hospitality to retail to professional services to caravan repairers. It typifies small business culture and barriers when it comes to leveraging digital technology for improved sales and marketing and operational efficiencies.
Their mothership company Digital Coaching International is an agile and responsive business demonstrating this acutely in our COVID-19 world when overnight they designed and launched a 12-week Up-skill During Lockdown online program to encourage up-skilling, connectedness and motivation in a highly distressed industry. Since commencing the first intake of the program on 30 March 2020, 800 businesses from across the country have been through the program. They are currently running the seventh intake of the program and have created a shorter version of the program for Navii clients.
The Navii team practises what they preach and utilise the lightweight digital tools that they suggest to small business operators to achieve their own business growth through digital marketing and operational efficiency, all suitable to a small nimble business.
Navii's birth story
Fabie and Liz are thrilled to be the successful recipients of the Empowering Business to go Digital grant to establish Navii, a new business to increase digital awareness in small businesses across Australia.
This is a natural step in their business journey towards their vision to empower entrepreneurs to have the success they crave and the lifestyle they desire no matter where they are located.
The experience, learnings, tools and success they have created to benefit the diverse tourism sector will contribute valuable assets to the new platform that will be accessible to all small businesses of any business type. It means they can now help businesses from any industry sector to digitally upskill and work smarter not harder to attract and convert customers and optimise their profit.
