Mentors-at-Conceptable-Fashion-IndustryOur motivated mentees are from different stages in their industry. They include startup entrepreneurs who are guided on all aspects they need to run and grow their business as well as owners and seniors from established businesses who may be mentored on how to deal with a next expansion chapter or significant challenge.

Topics vary greatly depending on their own needs and can also include branding, sourcing, product development, new sales channels, licensing and even the many personal or people related challenges they meet along the way.

Our startup mentees are amongst an elite group of startups who are mentored on all aspects of their business by extremely skilled industry mentors, who each have significant experience and contacts that can aid any accepted business to establish itself and grow.

If we consider the many different reasons that our mentees have for seeking our business guidance it is clear that mentoring can help achieve success, solutions and ideas that help them to move their business forward from where they are to where they want to be.

MENTORING, WHO BENEFITS?

From starting entrepreneur to seasoned professional, we all have challenges and decisions to make

Our clients are typically Fashion, Luxury, Footwear, Accessories, Home, Outdoor and Lifestyle Startups and Professionals.

Mentoring-Success-Conceptable-FashionWithin more established businesses we mentor the senior management, board members or founders on how to deal with next stage development of their business or changes they are going through.

Our startup mentees are amongst an elite group of startups who are mentored on all aspects of their business by extremely skilled industry mentors, who each have significant experience and contacts that can aid any accepted business to grow.

Higher level managers within established businesses can benefit from mentoring particularly if there are significant challenges, if this is the first time that they are in a role at this level or if they have arrived from a company or country where there is a very different corporate culture. This allows for instance newly appointed key people to establish themselves sooner and with more confidence. This benefits the candidate, their team and of course the business in many ways.

Specialist or general one to one sessions are available. If you are not sure yet if mentoring is for you, just continue to read or contact us today.
