Enterprising Women are inviting potential and practising mentors to an event on 4th June at Homerton College Cambridge to learn more about mentoring from two highly experienced mentors.
Enterprising Women mobilise mentors
Most business owners have faced the challenges of starting and running a business, wrestled with the same problems, and even sometimes felt like giving up. At those times, having an independent person to talk to and share those issues with can make a huge difference – to motivation, to understanding, and to overcoming business or personal challenges.
This event is not just for those who have been a mentor. Guest speaker Christine Jones is an experienced lecturer, counsellor, mentor and coach. She will show how most people can be a mentor, and talk about the essential elements for good, ethical mentoring, with pragmatic tips and guidance.
