Mentoring

Mentoring Growth Logo

We have a network of over 300 mentors who can help you to develop professionally and personally, as well as advising on all aspects of your business.

Who is the service for?

One-to-one mentoring support focuses on the individual. It is designed to help business people who feel that they want to develop personally and professionally. It can provide you with the breathing space you need to work on your business. The results of one-to-one mentoring can have a dramatic effect on the way in which your business grows.

About the service

We have a network of over 300 mentors, each is an experienced business person who has decided they want to give something back and work with the next generation of entrepreneurs.

To access the service, the first step is to speak to one of our mentoring advisors, who will help you to identify your growth plans and what you want to achieve personally from mentoring. Based on this, we will then match you with a mentor who we feel can really add value, although we will continue to monitor the situation to ensure that the relationship is working for both parties.

What can a Mentor do for my business?

Mentors can provide an independent perspective on your business, acting as a sounding board for new ideas. They can work with you to set new goals, and clarify the direction your business is taking. They can also help you develop new skills and expertise, and prepare you for times of change.

We also offer mentor/mentee inductions which are an opportunity to ask questions and find out more about what mentoring is and how it can help you.

Networking and masterclasses

We hold free monthly networking meetings where mentors and mentees can meet and talk, alongside masterclasses which concentrate on developing the mentees personally and in their business. Topics include leadership, managing change, growing your business, taking a product to market, marketing, understanding finance, sales and customer service.

Interested in becoming a mentor?

Mentoring can be a great way for you to develop, honing skills in supporting others, listening and giving feedback. It can also increase job satisfaction and raise your visibility within your own organisation and the business world at large.

As a mentor you will be part of our established mentoring team. We arrange regular informal meetings for this group featuring guest speakers along with opportunities to network and share experiences with your fellow mentors.
