Business Mentors in Bristol

Bristol has a proud manufacturing history, and whilst this is maybe not as strong as it once was, there is a huge growth in other industries. Bristol is now home to many creative entrepreneurial businesses, not least Aardman, the creators of Wallace and Gromit. And although huge businesses such as Clarks Shoes and Screwfix have long been based in Somerset, the county remains predominantly a small business economy, with 90% of businesses employing less than 10 people, and 70% with a turnover of less than £200k. Whatever the size and industry of your business in Bristol or Somerset, our locally business mentors can help you along your journey.

  • "Blooming marvellous! Nigel Browne opened my eyes to parts of my business that I'd left stuffed in a cupboard. After a couple of months of mentoring, I had a clear idea of what I want to achieve and a solid way forward. Business is not my thing at all, and I've actively avoided mentoring or coaching but I'm so incredibly glad I talked to Nigel -- he points me in the right direction when I get myself in a spin."

    Lucy Cripps - Bristol
  • "I have known Nigel since the middle of the first lockdown in the early summer of 2020. I watched and participated in his online live interview with another local business person, and I was most impressed with his knowledge and experience in how he proposes to help small (and large) businesses grow and manage and prosper. But his advice went beyond the professional side of business. From his language and tone of voice and body language and facial expressions, I sensed he had a true heart for understanding people, that is, the business owners that he mentored.

    He made it his priority to truly get to know his clients in their passion and what made them "tick". Yes, he offers facts and figures for finances, but he is also sensitive in how he presents this information by gauging his clients' ability to process the plethora of highly valuable resources and tools that he has to offer. Through his vision of what his clients present, he sees the whole picture and encourages them to keep dreaming big. What may seem overwhelm to small business owners like me, he does a super job in taking me by the hand and showing me the next step and the next and the one after that to make progress towards that amazing "some-day" vision that I first presented to him, and has now become his passion for me as well."

    Joanna Xylas - Bristol
  • "Nigel has quickly identified my strengths: my desire to effectively communicate with my own clients, my passion to support the needs of my students, my intention to offer a fair and affordable tuition rate, and my eagerness to learn new things. He has encouraged me to use these strengths as tools to help myself in better understanding how to pinpoint my own weaknesses in my business with his guidance, yet without judgement or criticism. He doesn't sugar-coat anything; he tells me like it is without holding back, in a raw and honest way, which I highly respect and appreciate. He freely shares his vast knowledge in how to document and keep track of income and expenditures, and how to carefully discern the difference between what is necessary and what is frivolous. The value that Nigel offers is truly priceless. I highly recommend any business owner to get in touch with him to see what he can do to help you and your business grow beyond your wildest dreams"
