Event Details

INTER-CEP Symposium Series 

Mentoring Symposium

Title: Mentoring Symposium

Date: February 24th 2016

Time: 2pm-6pm

Venue: IDEA London, 69 WIlson Street, London EC2A 2BB

The INTER-CEP Coaching Symposium is the first in the series that looks to dismantle entrepreneurship policy fashions, trends and buzzwords. 

In 2014 only 12% of SME leaders had engaged with a business mentor and only 44% had sought external advice of any kind*. This raises many questions? What type and at what point does a start-up or SME need a mentor? What value can they add and how can this be measured?
