Mentor Programme for Agency Owners & Senior Leaders

In September 2018 Design Enterprise Skillnet launched a new Mentoring Programme for design agency owners and senior design leaders which partners industry leaders with senior design and creative agency owners & directors for a 12-month one-to-one mentoring relationship.

The mentoring programme has been developed to inspire confidence as designers transition to director or agency owner. Assisted by a leader-of-industry mentor, participants are guided on how to make better-informed decisions about their business, their team and themselves.
