Here is what some of our customers have to say:
“The Business Mentoring Programme is an extremely successful and worthwhile initiative. Companies in all sectors face similar challenges, the most pressing today being the effects of the recession and climate change. It is important that businesses be prepared to support and share knowledge with one another” - Sir Moir Lockhead, Chief Executive of FirstGroup.
“I used the service last year when I first set up Jewelogic. It was the best thing I ever did! My mentor helped me win a significant contract which led to lots of repeat business. I can’t recommend it enough.” – Jane Farnsworth, Director, Jewelogic (Mentored Business).
“Getting the opportunity to see new and different businesses, the buzz you get from listening to their plans and ideas and the opportunity to give some input and guidance are all part of the rewarding payment for this voluntary opportunity.” - Tony Douglas (Mentor)
“Gordon was absolutely brilliant and a great source of contacts. Personality wise he is a perfect match, calm and very measured where I can be a bit fiery, he had a great calming influence and added structure to the decision making. This service is invaluable and especially for a small business”. - Chris Bogle, (Mentored Business)
