sreg-logoI am an active business mentor with the Skipton and Ripon Enterprise Group.

The Skipton and Ripon Enterprise Group (SREG) is a network of experienced entrepreneurs and business people dedicated to providing free and effective support, and mentoring, to local businesses

Founded in 2010, SREG is a group of active and experienced entrepreneurs and business people offering their time and expertise to keep Yorkshire’s enterprise culture alive. Mentors provide support and guidance that is personal, confidential and free of charge.

Mentors have wide-ranging expertise including change management and operations, marketing and sales, export, financial and HR in sectors such as retail, manufacturing, professional services, industry, finance and construction.

SREG is run by a small steering group that includes Silver Cross chairman Alan Halsall, Skipton Building Society group commercial director Alex Robinson and entrepreneur and owner of Broughton Business Park, Roger Tempest. Skipton and Ripon MP Julian Smith is SREG’s Honorary President.

Our mission is to support North Yorkshire’s long-established enterprise culture and ensure the continued growth and economic prosperity of the region. We do this by connecting successful and experienced business people, prepared to offer some time and expertise, with new or established business owners and entrepreneurs seeking support to overcome enterprise challenges.

SREG Mentors are all active, successful and experienced business people who want to support enterprise growth in region. All are personally selected by SREG’s steering committee to act as a ‘friend’ to your business sharing insights, knowledge and connections.

Our mentors have wide-ranging business expertise spanning most industry sectors. Mentors adhere to a strict code that includes a confidentiality clause and the support they provide is free of charge. SREG is based in the Skipton and Ripon constituency. At 900 square miles, it is one of the largest in Britain stretching across the Pennine dales of North Yorkshire and a large part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It covers many towns and villages including Ripon, Settle, Sutton-in-Craven, Skipton, Bentham, Masham, Ripon, Pateley Bridge and Grassington.

Our mentors live or work locally and to qualify for our help, clients must live in the constituency or have a business based there.
