Don't wait for MTD, help your clients go digital now

Gain a wealth of advice and objective opinions around how you run your business – our free, essential guide covers all aspects of mentoring.

At Sage, we believe mentoring matters and has the potential to transform the performance of any small and growing business.

Britain has always been a hotbed of innovation and entrepreneurial talent, but what’s particularly exciting is that the appetite for starting a business is actually growing. Thousands of new businesses are registered every year. But to turn these fledgling firms into profitable growing businesses for the long-term requires help and guidance.

Our research found 89% of small and medium sized businesses in the UK acknowledge that mentoring can help them to succeed. However, less than a quarter are currently making use of business mentors. We call this barrier the ‘Mentoring Gap’.


Our guide offers advice on what mentoring can do for your business:

  • What is mentoring?
  • Why mentoring matters
  • What sort of mentor is right for you?
  • How to find a mentor
  • Reverse mentoring
