Above all Rachel has been flexible, highly personable and very supportive – easy and fun to work with.

Aim of mentoring

To support participants on previous communications workshops and seminars apply what they have learned to their own, live situation on a one-to-one basis.

An opportunity for on-going, thought-provoking support to encourage you to approach your organisation’s communications needs and your own personal development with friendly, expert support. They maximise the value of your training workshop or seminar by allowing time for reflection and application.

Who is it for?

For people who have attended any of the other communications workshops or seminars and who want to ensure full value from their training, by embedding the techniques learned in a supported environment over an agreed period of time. Non-participants who want to revisit their skills could also apply.

Mentoring outline

Mentoring is the best way for you to maximise the value of a training session and to embed new skills into the heart of your practice.

We agree in advance a suitable number of hours’ support, but you can draw down the mentoring time as and when needed. The focus is on applying the course lessons to the real environment of the work situation, allowing you to check and confirm your full understanding and draw on further insights.

Mentoring can help rapidly build the technical skills of day-to-day communications staff, or support strategic planners.

Workshop format

One-to-one mentoring principally via phone and email support, or face-to-face by arrangement. An agreed number of hours’ support is contracted up front, to be drawn down as and when appropriate.

Where next?

With an established relationship, one-to-one mentoring can be continued in person, by email or by phone – or a combination – as and when you need extra inputs to generate ideas, test hypotheses or simply for a sounding-board for your concerns.
