Attention all owners of small or medium sized businesses in the Gillingham area. If you want your business to grow and develop with the help of private, affordable support that is proven to be effective, then attend ‘A Taste of Mentoring’.
This is a free, informal event being run by Dorset Business Mentors at the Guild of Fine Food, Kingsmead Business Park, Shaftesbury Road, Gillingham, SP8 5FB at 5.30-7.30pm on Monday, 4th November.
Half of all mentees report improvements to turnover of 20 percent as a result of their mentoring, however a mentor will also help their mentee develop the skills and confidence they need to realise opportunities and goals, and to overcome any challenges they face.
The opportunity is presented to hear about the benefits and process of mentoring, and to hear from Michael Stoate about his experience of having the support of Dorset Business Mentor Chris Hall since 2014. Michael is the 5th generation owner of N. R. Stoate & Sons which produces a comprehensive range of stoneground flours and is located at Cann Mills near Shaftesbury (stoatesflour.co.uk).
