Mentoring

At Entrepreneurial Scotland we’re working hard to join the dots.  Our peer-to-peer Mentoring Programme confidentially connects Growing and Leading members to learn from one another and share valuable knowledge and experiences. In the last year, our unique and flexible mentoring events and matching service has connected 100+ members.  Mentees value speaking to someone who has “been there and done it”, while mentors value making a lasting difference to those they support.

Our mentoring programme

Tailored for the entrepreneurially minded, we offer different styles of mentoring to respond to the diverse needs and schedules of our members. 

The matching service connects members for one-time meetings or longer-term mentoring relationships, while our popular “An Hours Mentoring With…” Events are an opportunity to focus on a specific challenge. 

 

The value of our mentor programme

Alan Mahon, Brewgooder - Mentee

"Sue has been a brilliant mentor. From day one she treated me as an equal on a journey rather than a teacher I had to learn from. Her frankness, honesty and way of thinking transformed my thinking on certain subjects and inspired me to take ideas to the next level."

Sue Holloway, Carat Scotland - Mentor

 “The opportunity to work with one of the next generation of Entrepreneurs is one that I’d recommend to any practicing business leader. I found collaborating with Alan both exhilarating and satisfying and I look forward to trying to help more in the future.”
