                            BUSINESS ADVICE/MENTOR PROGRAMME

This Programme was designed to provide entrepreneurs with temporary advisors to help identify
and overcome obstacles to growth in their business.

The Advisor’s Role is to listen and advise, to help identify problems and to suggest solutions.
He or she contributes independent, informed observations to aid a business in it’s decision
making process.

Areas of involvement typically include: General Management, Financial Management,
Production Planning, Marketing, etc.

The Mentor will outline guidelines to follow, point out strengths and weaknesses in proposed
projects, and act as a confidential sounding board.

However, the Mentor is not a professional Consultant and, under the terms of the programme,
may not become actively involved in day to day management or assume the role of an executive
in the company.

How the Programme Works: Each request for a Mentor/Advisor is dealt with individually in
consultations between the applicant business, the County Enterprise Board, and the Mentor
/Advisor. Careful consideration is given to a “match” between the requirements of the company
and the specialised skills and experience of the prospective advisor.

The Mentor and the company may meet on an agreed number of occasions. Either the company
or the Mentor may terminate the arrangement at any time.

During their working association, the Mentor/Advisor will provide advice and counselling, help
the company identify areas for improvement, assist in drawing up an action plan, and offer
guidance in carrying it out.


How to Join The Programme: A business which feels itself in need of temporary, totally
confidential advice may request the assignment of a Mentor/Advisor by contacting Mayo County
Enterprise Board, Top Floor, Cedar Building, Moneen, Castlebar, 094 9047548– e-mail:
ffullard@mayococo.ie

Costs Involved: The participating business may be asked to contribute up to 20% of the cost of
the assignment. This contribution will typically range from €50 to €200 depending on the
duration and complexity of the assignment.
