Specialist support in mentoring for company leaders and employees is now available for free as one of the Silverstone Technology Cluster’s growth programmes with government-backed network Be the Business.
The Mentoring Programme can provide employees of businesses based in the STC region with a dedicated expert on a variety of disciplines.
Please view our video which will give you a good overview of how the Mentoring Programme can be a really powerful tool and hear from those who have ‘been there – done that’ and benefitted hugely from the support and experience.
Since 2018 Be the Business have been positively impacting the UK economy’s productivity by matching advisors from leading firms with SME Founders to help accelerate their growth and competitiveness. Backed by Government and supported by leading businesses, the scheme is structured to give ongoing support and advice to participants to ensure successful outcomes.
Last year, 18 STC business leaders secured support under this scheme, and they told us they’re already seeing the benefits, just 12 months on!
Specialist advisors that are part of the Mentoring Programme include:
They’ve volunteered to offer support across all kinds of areas: getting the best out of a team, marketing on a budget, product development, production and delivery, supply chain management, pricing, marketing, managing risk, finance and more.
How it works is simple yet effective:
Create a tailored programme for their mentees
Make the most of their meetings with useful tips and advice via our Resource Hub, including induction material and ongoing support
Receive and share best practice from other mentors on the programme at our regular Mentor MeetUps
Send outline/sample content for invitation, recruitment promotion, targeted invitations, announcements and follow ups
By joining the Mentoring Programme, you’ll receive one-to-one support over the course of the year, meeting your mentor – virtually for now – every month.
