Free Business Mentor Session

Do you have a great business idea, but aren’t quite sure how to get it off the ground?

Are you in the early stages of launching your business, and just need to check you’re on the right path?

Why not book a free session with experienced business mentor, Julian Horrocks, who will be at the Yorkshire Business Market all day on 30th April.

He will offer impartial feedback on ideas, look over business plans, and answer any questions that you may have about running your business.

The sessions are free, but need to be booked in advance. Last year Julian was fully booked, so get in touch as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

To book a session with Julian, please email info@yorkshirebusinessmarket.co.uk You’ll get more out of the session if you briefly mention what issue(s) you want to discuss and also include your website address.

Julian has mentored start up companies and SMEs in a wide variety of business sectors for over 12 years and during that time has helped over 200 entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses. He operates on an informal basis – his mentees use him on an ad hoc basis, as and when they want to sound him out or get his opinion on any issue. Julian acts as a mentor, on a voluntary basis, for Entrepreneurial-Spark in Leeds and Skipton & Ripon Enterprise Group. You can find more information about him at http://www.yorkshirebusinessmentor.co.uk

Here’s what some of Julian’s satisfied customers said last year:

“It’s been a pleasure meeting with Julian at YBM, he’s very generous with his time and will go out of his way to provide insightful feedback. Even during an hour long, ad-hoc session he has given me some valuable advice and second opinion regarding business tactics.”

“Thank you very much for your time on Monday and your follow up email. I have bitten the bullet and my website now has lots of reviews which were previously on LinkedIn and Facebook. It does look much better – thank you! I have logos for professional bodies which I will put on the site soon. I am looking for more opportunities to speak to businesses too. Thank you again for your support.”

“I much appreciate your feedback and you have given me a number of things to think about.  My priority now will be to update my website and get more case studies and videos published.  I agree that the website doesn’t need to be too complex and that my customer stories are probably my best selling tool.”
