REBUILD YOUR BUSINESS WITH DMU MENTORING OPPORTUNITY
Business owners – would you like to get expert help to plan the next few months and where it will take your company? DMU’s Leicester Castle Business School is offering 30 hours of free mentoring and coaching for business leaders in Leicester to support them as they try to move forward from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
The idea came from Associate Professor Enterprise Andrew Nicholson, himself an experienced business mentor and consultant. Who firmly believes in the power of coaching to develop and grow companies.
He said: “If people who have not worked with a mentor or coach before it can feel a bit daunting. But having someone in your corner who is challenging you, listening to your ideas and helping you plan can make an enormous difference.
“There are business books and information online, but what a coach has is a personal connection. They are able to give you personalised advice that is all about you and your business.”
