My Mentoring experience

Mentoring experience:

For the past 25 years I have been a business support adviser. In that period, I have worked with over 2000 businesses and start-ups, talking through their new business ideas and helping them identify what they think they will need to do.

This helps to clarify the idea and its potential for their business growth.

The conversation looks at all aspects of the business and your experience, resources and support available to develop and implement the idea.

It will lead to setting goals, tactics and action plans that you are “comfortable” with. This is not to say it will be easy but I will be there to provide help and advice when necessary.

I have experience of both business and technology ideas development to start or grow your business.

I have current contracts (2017-2018)to support the development of business ideas through mentoring as a Barnsley-Launchpad start-up associate (Business advice, business planning and developing new products). I Provide specialist support through the Chesterfield Innovation Project and For Nottingham Trent University’s Enabling Innovation programme: mentoring for Early stage business developments, Marketing, sales and customer service, Social Enterprise, Branding Digital Entrepreneurship, Business Strategy and Proposition and Cash flow and Financial Management. I am a Registered EASME Horizon 2020 Innovation Coach for EU funded projects

From 2005 to 2015 I ran a “Proof of Concept” workshop programme for Nottingham Trent University where I have helped 330 individuals to investigate and test their new business ideas and learn how to run their business. Over 260 developed and implemented their business ideas and the majority are still trading successfully.

Prior to that I was an “Innovation & Technology Counsellor” with Business links in North Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire & South Yorkshire also specialising in Environment and ICT issues.
