I often talk in these posts about the importance of getting a mentor, and ideally more than one! On the evening of September 24, I am going to be speaking on the topic of mentoring as a guest of FreshIdeas and sponsor HSBC in London, which is running an exciting competition for female entrepreneurs to be paired up with successful women business owners. The mentors range from Karen Hanton, CEO of Top Table to Sumerah Ahmad, founder of Club Asia Radio and many more. Tickets for the launch event are still available, and the early bird discount ends today! This is your chance to enter the competition to gain a high-profile mentor and learn how she became a successful entrepreneur – and how you can too! Entries for the contest are being taken until October 17th, and you can find out more about this innovative contest, as well as download an entry form, from the FreshIdeas website. Good luck and I hope to see you on the 24th!
