The Grey Matters Network are delighted to be partnering with The Agile Executive in delivering mentoring through the Small Firms Association (SFA) and Skillnet Ireland’s new MentorsWork FREE Mentoring Programme for Irish SMEs which was launched on Thursday 8 April.

MentorsWork is a new, free business mentoring support for businesses in any sector which will connect business owners and managers all around Ireland with experienced and skilled mentors to address their specific business issues on a one-to-one basis. This new virtual mentoring programme is designed as ‘bootcamp mentoring’ specifically to tackle ‘right now’ issues companies are facing, particularly as a result of Covid-19.

The value to typical Small Firms is that having a mentor can change the playing field for businesses. This initiative has engaged over 100 mentors with extensive experience in formulating action plans to guide and support SMEs through challenges such as business restructuring, restricted transactions, financial concerns, job losses, business re-adaptation and new guidelines on health and safety, among other things.
