We provide volunteer mentoring services to business owners and leaders of typically very small businesses starting up and seeking to develop involving all manner of business issues.
We have access to a large number of dedicated volunteer mentors who provide volunteer mentoring for small businesses. This is provided on a free basis to eligible businesses.
Arranging volunteer mentoring for small enterprises and helping to equip mentors for the role and support them in it is our core mission.
Workshops for volunteer enterprise mentors
As part of joining our list of volunteer mentors to whom we refer those seeking mentoring we operate workshops to help equip mentors for the role.
We also provide periodic continuing professional development workshops covering a range of specific issues that mentors may come across in their work with small enterprises.
These are all provided free of charge to the mentors.
Workshops for small businesses
We provide periodic workshops for small businesses on specific issues. Mentors with experience in the area are usually invited along to bring their experience to the event and also be available for individual mentoring sessions afterwards and in break out sessions for those wishing to discuss areas specific to their enterprise.
Our workshops are not generally provided by professional trainers as such but individuals who have worked in the field and bring a wealth of practical experience.
Workshops are based around developing effective strategies in the area under discussion and those attending are encouraged to leave with a personal action plan developed during the day to take forward in their enterprise.
Workshops are usually provided free of charge to include refreshments.
