Matching British SME leaders with an experienced business mentor to help them through expansion and improvement challenges is at the forefront of the Be the Business Mentoring for Growth programme.

Mentoring is a fantastic way for some of the UK’s most productive companies to share what works with business owners.

Our Mentoring for Growth programme, which saw 36 mentors support 45 mentees in Greater Manchester and Greater Birmingham and Solihull during a pilot programme, has now been launched nationally. Hear the thoughts of our John Lewis Partnership chairman Sir Charlie Mayfield, who also serves as Be the Business chairman, regarding progress to date.

Mentoring for Growth facilitates collaboration between mentors from big corporations and key decision makers, owners and MDs from SME organisations. An open and honest exchange of ideas, expertise and experiences helps both shape the future direction an SME might take and provides important small business insights that mentors are able to take back into their own companies.

Supported by a network of companies from our Productivity Leadership Group, which can be seen below, Mentoring for Growth is a programme providing a calibre of mentors seldom seen in Britain. The programme is lead by our Growth Hub partners, who have great local knowledge and have developed a rigorous process to match prospective mentees with the best possible mentor.
