The Programme offers a unique opportunity for young professionals in the UK to benefit from a twelve-month programme of individual mentoring by experienced and successful senior industry professionals from across the SCC’s network of patron and member companies.

The Mentors for 2019 are leading lights in their respective industries, with decades of experience in creating innovative products and services, nurturing talent within their businesses and growing successful businesses.

The Programme will be lead by Dr Aarti Anhal and will consist of four Meet Ups and 1:1 mentoring sessions.

The forthcoming round of the Mentorship Programme will start in January 2019 and will finish in December 2019. For the first time, the Programme is open to applications from both YP Members as well as Non-Members.
