The Association of Business Mentors (ABM) is the professional association working to improve and professionalise business mentoring across the UK.

ABM mentors are highly experienced business people who have either started or run their own business, or played a significant operational role in such a business. As well as working in SMEs, some of our members also have experience in running a significant business unit in a large corporate.

 

ABM mentors provide all types of support to businesses, from strategy and planning, sales and marketing, HR, finance and growth to operations, IT/technology and much more.

 

THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH AN ABM MENTOR

  • The mentor will work as ‘sounding board’ and ‘critical friend’
  • Improve operational performance
  • Provide support for growth and expansion
  • Achieve more sales and higher profits
  • Focus on the positives of the business – and avoid the pitfalls
  • Provide accountability for the business owner
  • Overcome barriers and exploit opportunities by using the mentor’s experience and contacts
  • Build success

 

WHY USE A PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS MENTOR?


The results and statistics of working with a professional business mentor are clear –

  • 70% of SMEs which use a mentor survive for FIVE plus years
  • 97% of businesses which work with a mentor say they are INVALUABLE
