Testimonials

‘I have attended 3 mentoring sessions to support my marketing skills. I was matched with a fantastic mentor who had all the knowledge and experience needed to get me started. He explained the steps very clearly and got straight to the point, not a minute wasted. He has improved my thinking about my business and marketing strategies. I was surprised by how much could be accomplished within 3 sessions. It was a massive help for my business. I only wished I could have more sessions with my mentor, but I was given many tips and fundamental skills in looking after my social media campaigns, which is already a lot for me to get started with. My mentor also had many great ideas to help me connect with my regular customers. I really valued these sessions.’

‘Bizmentors is a great service. Our experience with our Mentor was very positive. He is a very good listener. He made us comfortable from day 1 to have discussions we might not otherwise have had or have thought of having. He also focused on asking us questions about our health and wellbeing in running the business, which is something that impressed us both. Our Mentor never put pressure on us to take his advice or follow what he wanted but helped us discern some things for ourselves. I would highly recommend this service, particularly to anyone starting a small business.’

‘HopeSpace was delighted to be connected with Luke Watts (IT Biz Mentor) as an adviser to us on IT related matters while we awaited the services of a permanent resource.

Luke was very accommodating with regard to his available time.  He certainly had all the technical information that helped guide us even with areas that were even outside of his remit.  He was excellent at ensuring that I understood all the information that he provided.’

‘I visited the SCCUL Enterprise Centre in Ballybane recently and I was really impressed with the entire operation. The commitment, energy and enthusiasm shown by everyone involved in this initiative is second to none. The Bizmentors Programme is a fantastic resource in the city and it provides a really valuable service to people starting out in business. Everyone who takes the very courageous step of starting a new venture needs proper support and advice and the mentoring programme provides exactly that, and on a pro-bono basis. I couldn’t praise this programme highly enough and I am very proud of the fact that it began in Galway.’

‘The Bizmentors programme has provided us with the much needed support and expertise that has allowed our business to flourish and grow since our first meeting over two years ago. While we recognised that we didn’t have all the answers, being able to access some of the leading business people in the region has been unbelievable and it has given us the tools to really push forward to bigger and better things. I would highly recommend any small business to get in touch and avail of the fantastic service provided by this organizations. You won’t regret it!’

‘The Bizmentors programme is remarkable in many respects, not least because of the high calibre of the mentors involved. However, this is an exceptional programme primarily because it is run by people in the community for other people within the community. It’s a sharing of expertise, along with emotional support, across a community and has a significant social inclusion dimension to it. The resulting sense of a ‘community of entrepreneurs’ compensates in no small way for what can otherwise be a sometimes lonely, isolated and daunting pursuit.’

Dr. Emer Mulligan

Head of School, J.E. Cairnes School of Business & Economics

‘We found the Bizmentors programme invaluable. It was structured enough to be able to plan on doing it in a working day but also flexible enough to arrange a time that suits you both.’
