Mentoring Programme

Win a year’s mentoring with a retail leader

Back by popular demand, Be Inspired is offering the chance to win a year’s mentoring with a retail leader.

In 2019 we matched 24 applicants with mentors from brands including Google, Coty, Amazon and Sainsbury’s.

This year Be Inspired will give 30 lucky applicants the opportunity to gain face-to-face time with retail leaders from Cos, Loaf, L’Occitane, River Island and more.
