Tree Shepherd is looking for new volunteers to become enterprise mentors
Helping entrepreneurs make independent decisions about the direction of their business is at the heart of what we do at Tree Shepherd. We meet hundreds of new entrepreneurs each year and know that setting up or running a business can be a real challenge. The reassurance of regularly seeing an independent mentor proves invaluable in the early stages.
Why be a mentor?
- You benefit from a mini-training session with our CEO Colin Crooks where you find out about the huge variety of micro-businesses that are popping up all around Lambeth and will learn what’s required for enterprise mentoring.
- You will have an opportunity to share with others all the skills and expertise you have gained in your professional life and play a key role right at the start of somebody’s new career.
- It is a great opportunity to further your own professional development and become part of the thriving Lambeth SME community.
You don’t have to necessarily be a business person. Experience of management in any sector can be just as valuable to a start-up business.
What is required?
Please book yourself on to the next mentor induction session. Tree Shepherd will then match you with a mentee and host the first meeting. You will be asked to meet once a month for an hour or so and the relationship will last for a minimum of 6 months.
Would you or do you know somebody who would like to volunteer to be an enterprise mentor?
