Fashion Business Mentoring


Fashion is a cutthroat industry. As well as creativity and talent, you also need plenty of sharply honed business acumen and strong entrepreneurial skills to succeed.

That’s where we come in. Ben Muis is a Fashion Business Mentor and Consultant with over twenty years’ experience. From working in international corporate environments to providing fashion mentoring for unique start ups, he knows the fashion industry inside and out. Ben is a certified Enterprise Mentor with the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs and is a fashion industry specialist mentor for the Start Up Loans programme in the London area with more than 25 years of experience in the industry. 

An effective enterprise mentoring relationship gives the mentee an opportunity to receive short, medium or long term personal and professional support. This enables you as the mentee to explore your personal and professional situation in order to develop those goals which will have a positive impact on your business enterprise.

Mentoring can also be particularly beneficial at challenging times, when a confidential outside view and independent guidance can help you to make the right decisions.

A mentor does not run your business or make decisions for you, but rather guides and helps you to go through the process of getting to those decisions and the action that follows with confidence. If you need a more hands-on approach, you might want to consider our consultancy, interim or non-exec consultancy services instead.

Mentoring is one of the ways in which you can better your own vision or actions. Other ways include consultancy, training and coaching or in some cases, mediation.

Statistically mentored businesses are far more likely to succeed in the long run, which is why mentoring has often become a key requirement when start-up loans are issued.

The fashion or apparel industry is a particularly challenging business sector. It is fast moving, involves many steps and in most cases many countries. Mentoring can be particularly helpful to those in key, challenging positions or those entering a period of building or growth.

You can now book fashion business specific mentoring sessions with Ben Muis. His extensive experience both in large international corporate environments and in guiding small new startups within the fashion, sports and luxury industries can provide you with renewed confidence in taking your next steps.

A series of sessions with Ben can help both your personal development and your business growth.

Ben mentors internationally as well as locally. Mentoring sessions can be in person, via the telephone or Skype for instance. For most topics one of our standard packages will be suitable. If you need more or want several people in your organisation to receive mentoring just let us know and we will arrange a different quote for you.

* In our experience a 60 minute fashion business mentoring session is not long enough for most clients and generally does not give the time to go deep enough into important topics. For that reason we have priced our sessions to be up to 90 minutes, making sure that the help you need to move your fashion business forward is covered.
