1:1 support for emerging entrepreneurs
Quench Salisbury is delighted to be launching a new mentoring scheme, in collaboration with local businessman David Clayton. The aim of the scheme is to provide tailored 1:1 support for early stage entrepreneurs, to overcome specific challenges in their business or develop skills and knowledge to help them and their business grow.
The mentoring scheme offers two hours a week mentoring over 12 weeks, completely free of charge. The short term nature of the programme makes it ideal for those applicants who have a particular goal or challenge they would like to focus on.
About the Mentor: David Clayton
After graduating from Exeter University with an Economics and Statistics degree, I then worked in the Life Assurance Industry for Cornhill Insurance and Friends Provident. There, my roles included: actuarial trainee, customer service manager, quality manager, complaints manager, product launch co-ordinator and sales trainer. I was also lucky enough to spend over 2 years honing my language skills whilst working for our European partners in Germany and Switzerland in project management roles both on the technical and cultural side.
Who can apply
This scheme is open to applicants who live or work in Salisbury and the surrounding area. Mentoring can be delivered online or in person by mutual agreement.
There are two mentoring spaces available each quarter. In line with our vision to ignite local social enterprise, we aim for at least 50% to be offered to entrepreneurs with a social or environmental purpose behind their business.
