New cohort of mentees sought. How could your business benefit from free expert support?
Somerset Council is launching the second stage of its ambitious business mentoring programme to match the very best across the nation. In recognition of the contribution mentoring makes to the success of micro, small and medium size business growth in the UK, The Business Mentoring Programme is a real catalyst for a mentoring network to unlock the knowledge and potential to support businesses across the county. With time, it will involve a growing band of mentors supporting countless thriving Somerset businesses.
Richard Swift, who heads up the scheme says: “The Somerset Business Mentoring Programme was initially launched in March 2023 and to date we have over 40 mentors who have been matched with over 50 mentees. We recently had fantastic feedback from one of mentors, David Holmes.
‘If I had any doubts about the impact this programme could have, it was dispelled yesterday when I met an ambitious, talented, exceptional young woman at the start of her career, in a situation where she could have significant influence on the success of the business.
We mentors volunteer our time and knowledge and I came away from the session with a sense of excitement and optimism for the impact this initiative can have on Somerset businesses. Thank you for inviting me to participate.’
We are now ready to recruit our next cohort of mentees and would encourage any business interested in benefiting from this great opportunity to take a look at the information below, or to contact me at [email protected]
