What to expect
The Entrepreneurs’ Forum’s peer-to-peer mentoring programme confidentially connects members in a number of different ways so that they can share knowledge and experience:
ONE TO ONE CONNECTIONS
Mentoring through the Entrepreneurs’ Forum begins with a tailored match-making process.
We’ll discuss what kind of mentor you’re looking for, whether that is someone to help you with a short-term business challenge, or a longer-term mentor who you can meet with regularly.
By understanding your specific situation and needs, we can then recommend the most appropriate mentor for you by carefully considering their past experience and skill-set.
In most cases, we’ll provide you with a few options.
When we’ve agreed on a mentor who is available, we’ll connect the two of you to set up an initial meeting and ask you to sign our mentoring charter.
Everything discussed in your meetings is confidential and at that point, you can both agree if future meetings are required.
We understand that business changes, so if you face different challenges along the journey, you can call upon mentoring support whenever you need it.
A member of the Forum team will follow up with you to ensure your mentoring link has been beneficial and make further connections if necessary.
MENTORING DROP-IN SESSIONS
Aside from one-to-one connections, our mentoring drop-in sessions are very popular and are held regularly throughout the year.
The usual format is to have two or three mentors available in one location, and members can make a one-hour appointments with whoever they wish to meet.
Members will receive an invitation to each session by email, and you can also find future 'mentoring surgeries' in our upcoming events.
*Our mentors give their time altruistically and no financial recompense is expected, nor is it necessary to offer any.
