This programme is delivered by Women in Business, sponsored by Advance Coaching, and is ​available exclusively to our network members. 
 
Mentoring is a developmental partnership through which the Mentor shares knowledge, skills, information, perspective and networks to support the Mentee in personal, professional and/or business development. It is a professional relationship based upon trust and respect.
 
One of Women in Business most successful programmes, it has grown from strength to strength, with over 150 successful and inspirational business women now gifting their time and expertise to support and guide many women in business members. At its heart this programme promotes a core aim of the network to support women at all stages of their career and business development.

Women in Business offers places on the programme three times per annum, matching 30 Mentors with 30 Mentees for a 12-month programme of mentoring support. As a result, we are continually recruiting experienced and accomplished women, who are willing to gift their knowledge and expertise to other women at an earlier stage in their careers.

What is a Mentor?
Mentors are drawn from a wide range of business and professional backgrounds, assisting their Mentee in career or business development through information & skills transfer, confidence building and sharing of networks.

The Mentor will be able to offer valuable knowledge, empathy and insight due to their own many years of experience. Mentors will be supported, through training and have the option to complete an ILM Certification – Introduction to Mentoring.

As a Mentor you will also be given the opportunity to connect with other Mentors at dedicated CPD and networking events.
How will it help mentees?
Mentoring is most effective when it is driven by the Mentee. Therefore, Mentees will take ownership, through a Mentoring Agreement, to be active, fully engaged, curious, open to challenge and willing to stretch their development and learning.

Training will be provided for Mentees to ensure they are fully prepared to harvest all the opportunities of the time spent with their Mentor.
