SUFFOLK County Council and Suffolk Constabulary are urging senior business leaders to share their experience by providing mentoring support to benefit other sectors of society.

A Suffolk Mentoring Event is being jointly hosted by county council chief executive Deborah Cadman and Deputy Chief Constable Paul Marshall at the council’s Endeavour House headquarters in Russell Road, Ipswich, on Monday, March 18, from 2pm to 4pm.

The authorities have been operating a mentoring partnership since 2008 which has seen high-calibre leaders working as mentors to develop their talented people.

Now, they aim to take the scheme to a new level, using the experience and strengths of business leaders to benefit people across sectors and boost the skill-set of the Suffolk workforce as a whole.

The scheme is aimed at experienced leaders with an established career at a senior level. Mentors give their time for free to support people outside their own organisation and in return can claim mentoring for people in their organisation.

The key note speaker at the event on March 18 will be Professor Bob Garvey, who holds the chair in business education at York St John Business School and is one of Europe’s leading academic practitioners of coaching and mentoring.

To book a place, email Suffolk.mentoring@suffolk.gov.uk with your contact details.
