I created the Small Business Mentoring Sessions as I don’t believe any other consultant or coach can deliver the content I do for the same cost. This service allows my customers to benefit from my own real-time experiences I have gained working with bigger businesses as well as many years of hands on experience of doing business myself. In my opinion small businesses do not need and should not pay for ongoing consultancy. All they need is a likeminded, experienced person to bounce off, focus and motivate them. This is why these sessions are so effective.
Ruth Badger, Managing Director
Our Small Business Mentoring sessions are designed for small businesses or start-ups who need an affordable solution to improve and grow their business. Delivered personally by Ruth over a 3 hour period, they are an effective way for business owners to access years of knowledge and experience and empower them to make the changes necessary to grow their business.
All sessions are built to a bespoke agenda to ensure the important issues are covered. The session is normally fast paced and probing to ensure the best commercial advice is given. Post meeting, a comprehensive report is provided detailing the feedback and action points of the session. This allows the business owner to implement the recommendations at their own pace.
Since 2006 our Small Business Mentoring Sessions have helped hundreds of small businesses start, grow and succeed.

After a recommendation we decided to book a Small Business Mentoring session with Ruth. Ruth made the session bespoke to meet all of our needs. The majority of the session was spent discussing the main issues within our business and post session an in depth 8 page report summarising all recommendations was provided. As a result it focused our attention on the areas of our business that required it, and last year we had our best year ever.

I completed my Small Business Mentoring session in 2015 as I was ready to launch my business. Ruth tailored her advice to ensure all my needs were discussed. Ruth has a vast business knowledge and her straight talking style enabled the session to be full of comprehensive and relevant information I could easily apply to my small chocolate making business. I was given an honest perspective on how I could grow the business and was set objectives that would enable me to do so. Ruth provided me with advice on specific areas where I’ve had issues in the past and followed up with a logical report after the session which I have been able to use to guide me. I would certainly recommend the Small Business Mentoring Ruth offers.
Owner, The Tagging Team
I had a few hours with Ruth and found the process to be insightful and valuable. Certainly a very straight forward approach and the ability to look inside your business very quickly. A mix of longer term strategy ideas and short term ‘fix that now’ advice was very useful. I would be more than happy to recommend Ruth’s consultancy services.
