The Mentoring for Growth programme is a free business support delivered by Be the Business, with the aim of matching experienced business experts with SME leaders seeking guidance, support and knowledge.  

STC and Be the Business work in partnership to make this programme available to STC clients and members. Enjoy this snapshot of how access to this specialist advice can help make a difference in your business:

Allsee Technologies’ managing director, Baoli Zhoa, was introduced to Carl German from Siemens through Be the Business’ Mentoring for Growth programme.

As both leaders worked in the technology and engineering sector, Carl was quickly able to understand the challenges that Baoli faced as a rapidly growing business, including their reliance on overly manual processes.

“I invited Baoli and his colleague to visit our site,” Carl explained. “During the visit, I introduced them to two of our agile coaches, who were able to provide agile project management support.”

Baoli’s experience of the site visit had a crucial impact on his business.

“Seeing Siemens, together with the introduction to agile project management, opened our eyes,” he said of the experience.

“We realised we needed to address the automation and digitalisation of our processes … so we implemented a management system which has made a huge difference to our productivity.”

Since the experience, performance at Allsee Technologies has hit new heights – business productivity has increased by more than 25 per cent.

STC and Be the Business are working in partnership to make this powerful programme available to STC members and clients. You can learn more about this opportunity here. To register your interest in the programme, email stcmentoring@bethebusiness.com
