Mentoring For Entrepreneurs

Who should attend, and why?

If you have recently set up your own business, or are thinking of doing so, then this workshop is for you.  Having a great business idea, and personal enthusiasm and commitment, is a brilliant start – but may not be enough to get you to where you want to be.  By definition, most new entrepreneurs have no successful experience in this role – which is where a mentor comes in.

  • know what it is that a mentor can do for you
  • know, from first hand experience, how effective a mentor can be
  • be able to decide if you want a mentor, and if so, what you want their contribution to be
  • know how to set up a mentoring partnership
  • clarify your own contribution

Content:

  • What next?
