Get a mentor to help your business Thrive

 

Get Mentoring in Farming is a new initiative set up following The Future of Farming Review (2013), which highlighted the role played by mentoring in developing business and management skills in the sector, for both those new to agriculture and those who are more experienced but who still face challenges in a fast-changing industry.

200 mentors have now been trained and NFYFC members have the opportunity to sign up and bag themselves a mentor to help them develop their business for free.

The benefits of having a mentor are clear; seventy per cent of small business owners that receive mentoring survive for five years or more. That’s double the rate of non-mentored entrepreneurs.

The impact of the recent flooding in some areas of the country has shown how important it is that people working in the farming sector support one another and the programme aims to encourage that.
