Empower your marketing team with coaching and goal-setting designed for career growth and team development.
Bringing a senior, strategic marketer into your business doesn’t have to be a full-time or expensive commitment. A marketing mentor provides extra or short-term support, helping your marketing team to grow and develop.
I work with businesses which need short-term support and guidance for their team with a clear end-goal. For example, to help a marketing executive step up to marketing manager level or to support a newly-hired, standalone marketing manager to set up a marketing plan. If you don’t have the budget or the energy to hire a head of marketing – this service is for you. Your team most likely need a sounding board and occasional support without feeling as though they might be replaced.
A marketing mentor can bring the benefits of industry knowledge and years of expertise, but the real bonus is impartiality. I encourage my mentees to think for themselves and to do the right thing. My approach is to coach and empower your team, helping them to become more strategic, independent and decisive.
My mentoring credentials
As a former in-house marketing manager and head of marketing, I’ve managed successful teams. And as my career developed, I was trained in coaching and mentoring. I’m now working towards an ILM Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching and Mentoring.
I offer two mentoring options: a one-off workshop or a programme. Both are designed for in-house marketing teams – including teams of one.
A 3-hour focused workshop to work through a specific topic such as a marketing campaign plan, a team training plan or how to put a strategic report together.
From £300 including a preliminary questionnaire to agree the aims and a follow up call.
A mentoring programme for 3-6 months to help your team to step-up and grow. This is focused on setting and tracking goals with a clear outcome at the end of the programme.
From £750 per month, including a monthly in-depth coaching session, weekly check-ins and phone and email support during office hours.
It’s important to ensure that a mentor and mentee(s) are a suitable fit and have good rapport. Therefore, an informal chat is a good starting point. Get in touch to get the process started.
