One-to-one support

Thinking of starting your own business, or need a boost to help your company grow? There’s a lot to consider and various routes you can take, but the good news is you don’t have to go it alone!

How we can help

Our expert Business Advisers run frequent Business Mentoring Clinics, which are ideal if you would like help or advice on anything from the initial business planning stages and getting financial help, right through to advice on marketing and creating long term objectives.

As well as the hour long clinic, you will also receive a free 30 minute consultation over the telephone beforehand, to ensure you get the most out of the session on the day.

One-to-one support for new businesses

Our Business Advisers offer one to one support for any new business owner or entrepreneur who would like to discuss their business idea or receive support creating a business plan and completing a financial forecast. Attending a mentoring clinic is a good way of being able to talk confidentially about your business idea and receive professional advice in return. Our Advisers will guide you in terms of what you may need to research or develop to give your business the best chance of success.

One-to-one support for existing businesses

Running your own business can sometimes be a lonely place, so our mentoring clinics provide you with the chance to talk to a Business Adviser about any issues or questions your are facing within your business in a confidential space. Our advisers can help you to focus on what is important in your business, assist you with setting objectives and help you to move your business in the direction you want it to go. There is the option to attend a one-to-one session on a regular basis to help you achieve your targets and this can be discussed in your first meeting.

We also run workshops in Bristol and Swindon on these topics, but some business owners will prefer a one-to-one approach. 


Book a one-to-one mentorship session with a business adviser for just £50 per hour.
