Mentoring from BII


Mentoring is available to all BII members! Whether you are new to the trade or you consider yourself to be an industry guru, we believe that being able to seek advice or simply bounce your ideas off another trade professional, is a great source of support.

All our mentors have a wealth of experience in the trade and are specialist in specific areas. If you need help solving a problem, planning for the future or just need some fresh ideas, a BII mentor could be the help you need.

Some areas that people have sought advice:
-    Taking a new lease or tenancy
-    Business planning
-    Licensing advice
-    Career progression
-    Introducing a new offer (B&B, marketing / advertising, food, deli…)
-    Staff or personal training suggestions
… and the list goes on!

Whatever the query we will find a mentor to suit your needs!

Many BII members are already making the most of mentoring!
