Welcome to
Be the Business Mentoring 

The UK’s most ambitious scheme focused on
driving up productivity and business growth

The Be the Business Mentoring Programme matches leaders from small- and medium-sized businesses with expert mentors from some of the UK’s leading companies.  

Backed by government, Be the Business Mentoring runs for either  12-weeks or 12 months- whichever best suits your business needs. In both, you will be matched with an experienced mentor who will act as your sounding board for whatever challenges you may face.

Access to relevant skills, new experiences and fresh perspectives are vital for long-term business improvement. Be the Business Mentoring will give you these.

12 Month Mentoring

Over the course of 12 months, our Mentoring programme will help you develop your business strategy and build your leadership skills working with an experienced mentor. Your mentor will offer support and advice on long-term growth and strategy for your business.
