Are you driven by a passion for sharing your knowledge and experience in business planning, financial management, marketing, or product sales channel development with others? Do you want to help emerging businesses turn their plans into reality and make a meaningful impact on the jewellery and silversmithing industry? Become a mentor and embark on a transformative journey that benefits both you and your mentee.

In this one-hour online session, our team will explain the reasons for the Goldsmiths' Centre's Business Mentoring Programme and what it involves in practice to volunteer your time. You will also have time to ask questions.

For emerging businesses, it is easier to spark ideas, reflect, solve problems and build confidence by speaking to others about their plans. This programme brings together:


Our mentees: Our pilot Business Mentoring Programme is open (via email invite) to emerging UK based businesses that have completed a Business Diagnostic and Advice session for Jewellers and Silversmiths in the past 12 months.


Our mentors: Many of our mentors are members of The Goldsmiths’ Company, a membership organisation in existence for almost 700 years. Our mentors are either highly engaged with the industry or work directly in it as practising craftspeople, and designers or in support functions across retail, auction houses, the arts, marketing and education.
