Here in North Devon we are lucky enough to have our own mentoring service – http://www.businessbuddiesnd.co.uk/ -
“a range of specific business mentoring services that are provided free of charge by a Leader funded project to eligible businesses in the Torridge and North Devon areas. The project started in July 2010 and originally had funding for a 2 year period to mentor 100 smaller businesses in the area, although an extension to this time period is currently being agreed.”
Seeing a mentor through a service like this can be very beneficial to you and your business, but there are many ways to get this type of support.
Here at the North Devon Business Alliance we have plenty of members who will offer you free one to one meetings, normally an hour or so, as well as answering your questions at networking events such as this month’s networking lunch at the Chichester Arms!
Ask Stacey, Robert or myself, Kevin about the possibility of having a 1-2-1 to discuss your social media activity and campaigns – in our own ways we all use social media to promote NDBA as well as our own businesses and other networking group – see Robert’s activities with CombeBusiness for example.
Maybe you are an expert in what you do, why not let us know what that is and whether you offer a free one hour consultation or whether you would have an informal chat about a topic at one of our lunches – after all it may even turn into some business because isn’t that what networking is all about!
Need an expert, ask us and we can point you in the direction of someone who can help – problem more ongoing? Then we might suggest you take Business Buddies up on their longer mentoring support programme!
Not sure about any of it – come along to one of our lunches and just have a chat – book HERE for this month’s lunch!
