More tips for mentors
Mentoring skills workshop
Hear from other mentors
Big Society Capital invited three current GET INFORMED mentors to share their experience of mentoring and why they get involved. They also offer their own top tips for mentors.
Our three mentors talk about: why they got involved, what they offered, what they learned from the experience as well as what their mentee gained from the mentoring support.
You can connect to other mentors on the programme through our LinkedIn group for GET INFORMED Mentors.

Questions to the panel
"Mentoring is a win-win situation from my point of view: mentees can gain access to information and advice along their social investment journey. Mentors can share their experiences and help others, but also stay in touch with the realities, challenges and complexities social entrepreneurs face."
