How do I meet a mentor?
Step 1: Register with us for free
Join the IOEE as an Affiliate (Mentee) Member, which is our free grade of membership.
Step 2: Create Your Profile
Once registered you can create your profile. Your profile describes your background and the kind of enterprise skills and business expertise you’re looking for. Your profile will be listed in our ‘Mentee Directory’ allowing our mentors to search and connect with you. Plus, all mentors who have been through the Get Mentoring training receive a bulletin of recent listings maximising the chances that you’ll find a mentor who can support you.
Step 3: Find a Mentor
Our connection tools help you find other members who are offering the business expertise and industry experience you need. Search our mentor directory and when you find a suitable mentor you can send them a ‘Connection Request’.
Step 4: Connect with a Mentor
Once you receive acceptance of your ‘Connection Request’ you can exchange contact information or communicate through our messaging system and you can start working with your mentor.
Why is it free?
Thousands of experienced business people are receiving free mentor training from Get Mentoring, a government funded initiative to encourage business mentoring across the UK. In exchange they have agreed to volunteer as a business mentor for at least one hour a month. In support of Get Mentoring, the IOEE is gifting free membership to all of the newly trained mentors and any business owners that would like to meet them.
