The nationwide organisation has five directors in different parts of the country and Chris covers the South East of England.

The Association of Business Mentors is a membership organisation for business mentors who work with businesses of all sizes, from start-ups and small and medium enterprises to large corporations, across all sectors of the economy.

Chris’s main responsibility as a director of the ABM is to promote the association in the business world and to connect with potential partners to seek collaborative working.  He also helps with networking and member development and engagement to ensure ABM members make the best use of their membership.

Chris says research showing the benefits of business mentoring are clear: 70% of businesses using a mentor survive five or more years, and 97% of them said their mentor was invaluable in helping their business develop.


However, Chris adds, only 15% of businesses report having had any kind of engagement with a mentor which means a staggering 85% are missing out on developing their opportunities for growth and expansion.

He says business mentoring has been proved to work, resulting in business growth and increased profitability.

Chris Dowling will be pleased to receive enquiries from local businesses owners about business mentoring – he offers a free-of-charge initial consultation.
