  • 20+ years of all-round experience in a commercial environment
  • Previous experience includes understanding financials, people management, leadership and business development
  • Enjoy helping others to develop
  • A belief that helping business owners grow themselves and their businesses could be your Ikigai (which is the Japanese word meaning ‘Reason for being’)

Why join UK Business Mentoring?

  • UK Business Mentoring is rated number one in the UK, out of over five hundred business coaching firms based purely on client feedback
  • We have proven models and systems that new franchisees can follow to fully support their clients

Redundancy in late 50's is best thing to have happened!

UK Business Mentoring franchisee jim Gorrie talks about how redundancy pushed him into starting a new career in his late 50's.

I remember the shock, the anger, the feeling of loss - after forty years in the corporate world (thirty-five years with one organisation and nearly five with another) I was being cast aside. On reflection I know this wasn’t the case, but I am only human, and I can still recall the irrational range of thoughts and emotions running through my head. As it turned out, it was one of the best things that has happened to me."
