Mentoring involves getting one to one confidential advice from an industry expert chosen by the Local Enterprise Office to focus on a particular aspect of your business. The majority of business queries can be dealt with through mentoring. Some of the more common ones from food and drinks businesses include marketing, sales, social media, pricing, business strategy, export and lean processes. Applications are made online.


Business training is delivered by the Local Enterprise Office on an ongoing basis.  Training could deal with individual topics such as sales or focus on the overall  management and development of the business as a whole. A number of training  programmes are organised each year which focus specifically on the food and drinks sector. The Local Enterprise Office publishes details of all its upcoming training courses on its website
