Speed mentoring offers firms chance to quiz experts

Business owners in need of advice on intellectual property (IP), marketing or sales can speed network with industry experts at a series of free, themed events run by the British Library.

Held at the Business & IP Centre in London, the free Speed Mentoring sessions will run from 14 November and follow a different theme over five days – including Absolute Beginners, IP & Innovation, Women in Business, Marketing Maestros and Make it, Sell it. Two sessions will run each day, from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 5pm.

Attendees will be able to question up to eight seasoned business experts in an accelerated way in each session to get the advice and information they need on how to run a successful business.

In addition, on 14 November the British Library is running Question Time for Entrepreneurs which offers attendees a chance to question some of the UK’s leading business figures – including Apprentice winner and founder of the Bright Ideas Trust Tim Campbell. Tickets cost £10.

“More than 5,000 small businesses have participated in our Global Entrepreneurship Week events programme during the past five years and we are looking forward to helping more businesses to prosper and grow through access to some of the best business brains in Britain,” said British Library head of business and research audiences Isabel Oswell.
