An Exclusive Taste of Mentoring


Dorset Chamber is delighted to announce an event in conjunction with Dorset Business Mentoring (DorMen) on Wednesday 12th June at The Village Hotel, Bournemouth. Registration from 8.00am, event closes 9.30am.

Mentoring is a powerful tool for business, and Dorset is privileged to be home to Dorset Business Mentoring (DorMen), one of the most successful mentoring schemes in the country. They offer a professional and confidential service, connecting their high calibre team of volunteer mentors with businesses across the county. All mentors have direct experience of running their own successful businesses, or come from senior management roles from across a range of sectors and specialisms. It is a remarkable resource and is available to all small and medium sized businesses in Dorset.

DorMen mentors act as an impartial and supportive sounding board. Their external perspective will be refreshing, although not always welcome. However they are your friend in business and are completely committed to helping you succeed. The benefits of working with a mentor are well documented. The Federation of Small Businesses estimate 70% of small businesses receiving mentoring survive for 5 years or more - more than double the rate of non-mentored entrepreneurs. Similarly, an independent study by Winchester Business School highlighted that businesses saw impressive improvements in operations and profitability, while owners developed the key skills they needed to achieve their goals.

This exclusive event will give Chamber business owners the opportunity to meet DorMen Mentors face-to-face for a confidential 30 minute 1 to1. Those attending will have a constructive conversation around their challenges and see first-hand how a Mentor can help them realise their business goals.

The event will be opened by Chamber President Liz Willingham, herself a former client of DorMen. Members will also be able to meet current clients of the service who will be on hand to talk about their experiences and give you an insight into how mentoring works for them in practice.

We expect demand to be strong for this event so please register early to avoid disappointment*.

(*DorMen would like to match business owners at the event with a mentor best suited to their need. They will contact attendees in advance to confidentially establish key business information that will assist with this process. )


Please note: Bookings will close at 12.00pm on Friday 7th June 2019 or when the event is fully booked. Please book before this date to avoid disappointment and guarantee your place as these events are very popular.
