1. How do Mentor Advisory Forums work?

Simply register online to send in your questions on the upcoming Mentor Advisory Forum topics and then phone in to our conference line on the scheduled date and time of the forum to listen to a panel of expert Mentors answer your questions. 

Mentor Advisory Forums are open to anyone who has questions on a business topic.  A panel of two to three Mentors participates in each session and takes an hour to answer all submitted questions.  If time permits there will be an opportunity at the end of the session for participants to ask additional questions. 
Past Mentor Advisory Forum topics include:

  • Work/life Balance
  • Social Media
  • Networking
  • Building Authentic Relationships
  • Mission & Vision Statements
  • Task Management 
  • Learning to Delegate

2. How do I participate as a Mentor?

Mentor Advisory Forums are a great way for busy entrepreneurs to give back! 

To volunteer, each forum only takes an hour and a half of your time.  There is a half hour meeting held a few days before the forum to review the submitted questions, and then you will need to attend the one hour long Mentor Advisory Forum. That’s it!

If you have a specific area of business expertise and you would like to volunteer, please contact us at mentoring@womensenterprise.ca


3. I have a business topic I’d like addressed by a Mentor Advisory Forum

Women’s Enterprise Centre is open to offering Mentor Advisory Forums on any business topic that’s important to entrepreneurs across British Columbia.  If you have a suggestion, please make sure that the topic is very specific; broad topics like Marketing Strategies or Financial Forecasting are just too large to cover in a one hour session.
Please send any suggestions to mentoring@womensenterprise.ca.


4. What does it cost to participate?

At this time, Women's Enterprise Centre is able to offer Mentor Advisory Forums to women entrepreneurs in British Columbia at no charge.
