“I was delighted to be accepted onto the mentoring programme. I had no idea how much it would in turn benefit my business. My mentor’s wealth of experience and knowledge was invaluable in helping me look at the operations from another angle, we often spend all our time working in the business whereas having a mentor turns your attention to working ON the business. We even went on to win a ROCCO Business Award this year. Very grateful for our time on the programme and given the chance I would highly recommend it for any business.”
Karen Crossan, Plush Plans
“The Chamber has provided valuable support, advice, and contacts when we have appealed for assistance, but our primary help has come through the fantastic mentor scheme. We are also a huge fan of the ROCCO awards and have enjoyed successes in those.”
Brian Toward, Wholesale Domestic Equipment Ltd.
“The Business Mentoring Programme has helped me identify and achieve my career goals at Ingliston. Mark has helped me develop and maintain a broader perspective on career options and opportunities. I would absolutely recommend the Programme to anyone in business looking to increase their full potential.”
Gary Clark, Ingliston Country Club & Hotel
“It has helped me in a practical sense from contacts to logistics, more importantly taking that time out from the business you benefit from the outside point of view. Sometimes it’s small parts of the conversation that clicks and makes sense. I would recommend Business Mentoring as it’s a good opportunity to discuss your plan for your business with someone who knows what they are talking about. You also know they are doing this to genuinely help you and your business.”
Xander Campbell, Yellow Slate Design
“The most valuable takeaway from the mentorship programme to date has been the training and support linked around financial reporting, forecasting, and cashflow. This is a critical part of running a business which is overlooked by so many smaller companies – including ourselves up until recently. The input and guidance from Phil and the BMP to date has given me the confidence and knowledge to make smarter business decisions and implement more meaningful strategies.”
Nick Tracey, One Branded
