Rapid response mentoring programme for small business
Could your business benefit from free business mentoring?
We know that businesses are starting to consider the next steps forward from lockdown, and that this process can be very challenging.
That’s why we’ve partnered with “Be the Business” to give small business owners based in the UK access to the 12-week Rapid Response Mentoring programme, which is government-funded and completely free of charge.
Be the Business are an independent, not-for-profit movement.
Their mission is to help every firm in the UK improve their performance, and the performance of those they work with. During the unprecedented circumstances caused by coronavirus, they are working to do everything possible to help businesses through the immediate impacts and rebuild.
Be the Business have 300 fully trained, highly experienced mentors available now to support you to respond to the current crisis. The mentors come from a range of leading businesses such as BAE Systems, Novuna Business Finance, GSK, KPMG and Siemens. They can support across a range of issues including scenario planning, finance, HR and staffing, supply chain and change management.
In a nutshell the Rapid Response Mentoring programme gives you
- Tailored, one-to-one support from a senior exec in a leading firm
- Your own mentor carefully matched with your specific needs and objectives
- 12 weekly sessions by phone, Zoom or in person – if it’s safe and convenient of course
The programme is well-suited to small businesses that have a minimum of 6 staff and an approximate turnover of £1m or more.
