The business was doing ok and growing organically, with little direction or planning. I wanted to get some opinions on where I could take the business and how to improve it.

I read about mentoring on Wenta’s website and decided to get in contact. I was really keen to get more outside opinion on the business. I also felt I still had a lot to learn in business and someone with lots of experience would be beneficial.
It was great being able to discuss new ideas with David, our mentor. We are currently working on a new marketing strategy for the business and he gave great feedback on this. He also helped on different things we can do to find new clients, and also providing opinion on some of our materials such as the website, brochure etc.
David also taught me the importance of cash flow and profit forecasts. I now do these regularly and they are very helpful at planning ahead.
We talked a lot about managing my staff, how to motivate and include them in business decisions.
I am very grateful for the time David spent helping me and I think the help he gave me was hugely valuable.
