Business Mentor - Cambridge

Is This You?

Leadership can be rewarding but it can also be tough. If you're at the top of an organisation facing problems, there may be times when you want to unload, seek advice, and find validation. But there's no appropriate person to talk to. Board members have their own agendas, and the rest of your organisation can't or shouldn't see the whole picture like you do.

Time to consider finding a mentor?

What is Mentoring?

a one-to-one relationship over a period of time between a less experienced person (mentee) and an established professional (mentor), which provides consistent support, guidance and practical help 
a process by which an experienced professional shares their personal skills, knowledge and experience with another person

a means of enabling a less experienced person to gain the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to be able to perform at a higher level


an opportunity for a less experienced person to gain access to impartial, non-judgmental guidance and support 


a process of working together to achieve predetermined goals and objectives 


a two-way process through which both parties derive satisfaction from the progress, and success is attained through working together. 

How I Can Help


I have many years of senior management experience in the technology and voluntary sectors.
It made my hair drop out, and what's left went white, but it also gave me insights about how business works.
I've seen some successes and also made many mistakes in my career: but I hope I've learned something as a result.

If you're looking for someone to fix your problems, then it's not a mentor you need.
But if you want to tackle your issues with an experienced, friendly and honest person by your side, please get in touch.

Here are some things we could do together...

Strategic Reviews

A common mistake many senior managers make is to confuse the urgent with the important. Let's take time to consider what your long-term goals are.

Fundraising

How to get funding into the business is a question many CEOs struggle with. I can bring ideas, review your pitch and help you optimise it.

Troubleshooting

Solving problems sometimes needs the voice of a critical friend (like me) to bring out the strengths and weaknesses of any chosen solution. 

Sounding Board

Sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees. Bouncing ideas around in a safe space with me can often produce new solutions and raise confidence.
