Clonmel Chamber is launching a free mentoring service for members later this month. Small Business Advice will be launched locally at an event in Clonmel Park Hotel on March 24th.
The Small Business Advice service was launched in Cork last year and has been supported nationally by Bord Gais. The aim of the service is to provide business owners and managers with a confidential mentoring service. Businesses using this service will be able to avail of a number of free sessions with mentors who have significant experience in particular fields. Some of the topics that have been covered so far include business development, marketing, HR and Finance.
“We are delighted to be launching this in Tipperary” said Clonmel Chamber President, Tina Mulhearne. “The Small Business Advice concept is excellent and what is very important is that the mentors act confidentially and are not pushing a product are a service. Therefore they are in a position to offer honest and independent advice to businesses” she added.
The Small Business Advice service was created by Fine Gael T.D Simon Coveney with the help of Bord Gais. To date it has been rolled out in a number of areas. Eddie Hobbs is one of the well known members of the Small Business Advice advisory panel.
“We have been working on this for a number of months, identifying mentors, getting them trained and ready to meet local business owners. This is a fantastic service and we hope that local businesses will avail of it” said the Chamber President.
Businesses interested in accessing the service or offering mentoring should contact Clonmel Chamber on 052 61 26500.
