FreshIdeas can help you set up a mentoring programme in your workplace or for your organisation.
Mentoring is a relatively inexpensive and focused business tool that allows you to maximise on available skills and expertise. The ROI is excellent.
We can help you with:
- setting up and coordinating the programme
- recruiting and training mentors and mentees
- matching mentors and mentees
- developing objectives and programme evaluation
- provision of ongoing support to ensure your mentoring programme becomes a success
MENTOR PROGRAMMES WE HAVE RUN
In a bid to encourage female entrepreneurs, FreshIdeas have run a series of successful Mentor Programmes.
Supported by HSBC, BT Business and Business Link, this gave women across London the opportunity to have some of the UK's most high profile and successful businesswomen work with them to help them achieve their goals.
The Mentors – some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the UK volunteered their time and expertise to the project. 5 of our mentors were named in Britain’s 100 Most Entrepreneurial Women list.
We called them M.A.D. (Make A Difference) Women
The Mentees – we were inundated with applicants to take part in the programmes and through a process of matching on personality, skills and expertise we chose the lucky ones.
Participants reported that the mentoring process had been a dynamic two-way exchange benefiting both parties. Read Emily's blog, on the right, to understand how one participant found the process.
Press Coverage – the press covered the stories and case studies of these aspiring entrepreneurs and their mentors.
