International Mentoring Scheme


This service has a closing date of 31/08/2018.

In today's competitive business world a mentoring relationship can give you an edge that differentiates you from your peers and/or the competition.

Having a professional with many years of knowledge and insight into what it’s like to build and grow a business, could be just what you need to help you make it in international markets.

Mentoring will allow you to review your personal and professional situation in order to develop strategies and goals that will have a positive impact on your business. 

Our enterprise mentoring scheme offers face-to-face, one-to-one mentoring from an SFEDI accredited mentor, which is the Government-recognised UK Standards Setting Body for Business Support, run by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs.

The role of the mentor is to realise and develop your resourcefulness, and explore a variety of options to consider alternative courses of actions in order to solve problems. This is particularly relevant when considering entering new export markets and the challenges this creates.

Your business can benefit from monthly one-to-one sessions of 2 hours for up to 12 months.

"Our mentor attends regular meetings with us; she looks at our plans and uses the resources she has available to advise and support us - particularly on the market and representatives overseas.”
