“On a personal level, mentoring gives you the confidence to grow as a person. Our mentors have always acted as a sounding board which is a massive benefit when making tough decisions. The service is great because the mentors give guidance and support but the answers lie with us, the business owners. When my business went through Mentoring, we increased our turnover and went from 6 employees to 20.”
Dianne Drummond, Director, B-Dacs
“Business mentoring made the most difference to our business and growth. Our turnover increased threefold, with near similar increases in employment. Our mentor made a positive impact, especially on our outlook and on the shape of our business growth.”
Michael McGhee, Partner, Neo Environmental
“My turnover and profits have increased substantially and I would recommend mentoring without a shadow of a doubt. After each meeting with my mentor, I was like a wind up bunny and I’d go off and get things done! Not only did mentoring help me to increase my profit margins, it re-instilled my passion for the business.”
Susan Anderson, Creative Director, Eikon Design
