Members of Dorchester Chamber of Commerce can apply for a 50% discount for the Dorset Business Mentors scheme.
Working with Dorset Business Mentors, the Chamber is offering to subsidise the mentoring scheme to help members with their training needs. Dorset Business Mentors has 130 business volunteers and matches these people up with the businesses who require help. The one-to-one mentoring takes place over a 12 month period with the opportunity for regular face-to-face meetings over the year.
The normal cost for the yearly scheme is £200, so with the subsidy the cost to Chamber members would be £100.
The mentoring support given is specifically targeted to the businesses needs and requirements and could include a desire to reinvigorate the business, to overcome the challenges of rapid growth or a changing marketplace, managing staff, or looking at a change of ownership and exit planning.
More information about the mentoring scheme can be found on the Dorset Business Mentors website.
