“Mentoring from Sharon has made the difference between the success and failure of my business. She has the unique qualities of a good mentor. She has walked alongside me as I ventured from a salaried NHS job into the new world of self employment and running my own training consultancy. She has let me make my own decisions and at the same time, anticipated and guided me away from pitfalls I would have had no knowledge of without her. She has shown total belief in my ability and has helped me stay confident and focussed throughout the whole process. I can honestly say it was worth every penny and I would recommend her without reservation to anyone thinking about making that career move. ”Trudy Johnson
It’s also about challenge, moving you out of your comfort zone and into new and better ways of working.
Over the last few years I have mentored many freelance trainers at different stages of their business, some have just started out and others have been trading for a number of years. Apart from being independent trainers and business owners all of my Mentoring clients have one thing in common – they want change and are willing to make change themselves in order to get it!
“Sharon and I spent a few sessions mentoring with ideas, plans and implementing strategies for my business. She is someone that I trust implicitly, always ensuring she has my best intentions at the heart of every conversation.
Sharon really excelled in pushing me towards challenging myself and who the best people are to work with. Great ways of re-approaching social media, business ideas, marketing and future opportunities.
A real genuine lady who is expert in her field I would thoroughly recommend Sharon’s services even if you have been Freelance for years.”Sally A Smith
Why You Should Consider Mentoring
Mentoring will be beneficial for you if you:
- Are full of ideas but struggle to put them into practice, you procrastinate and get easily side tracked
- Are indecisive, drift from thing to thing and worry about the consequences of your actions
- Work best through talking to others and having someone to bounce ideas off
- Feel overwhelmed and not sure what to focus on for best results
Working with a Mentor will:
- Provide accountability and give you a sense of purpose
- Get you focused on DOING rather than THINKING and worrying
- Give you clear and specific advice on the things that you should be doing to achieve the results you want
- Encourage you and support you to achieve your goals
I’ve been in contact with Sharon Gaskin through a number of social platforms over a number of years and I’ve attended a number of her courses. As a trainer I can really recommend all these courses. She is a trainer so she understands the concerns of freelance trainers. She is warm, kind and delivers superb value for money. It’s really clear she loves what she does and she loves trainers….I am really looking forward to continue working with her over the next number of years and she will be a key part of building my freelance business. She offers clear practical advice that is eminently easy to implement! Thank you, Sharon.Anne Walsh
How It Works
Mentoring programmes are for a minimum of 3 months because I believe that real change or progress can’t really be made in less than this period. To get the best out of your Mentoring experience it’s really important for us to get to know one another really well and for me to get to spend time with you so that I can really get a deep understanding of the challenges you face.
Sessions are conducted via Zoom so you don’t need to travel anywhere! Each session will be for 60 minutes. Plus unlimited email support.
Sessions will be scheduled in advance to suit both of us.
One of the best business decisions I’ve made this year was to invest in Sharon’s one to one mentoring programme. Sharon’s wealth of experience in all aspects of owning and running a successful development business is obvious as soon as you connect with The Trainers Training Company. Working one to one with Sharon you quickly get to the heart of your own business issues, where your focus should be and how to get there.
I was seeking a mentor who would be supportive, honest and challenging as necessary and that’s just what Sharon delivered. Our sessions were well-structured, energising and great fun! Sharon is a very skilled facilitator, able to create a trusting environment where new ideas can be explored safely.. From working with Sharon I have gained clients in a new market, redefined my product offering and my own pricing model. I would strongly recommend Sharon as a mentor; her generosity with her experience and advice is invaluable. Thank you, Sharon.Jennifer Devine

Next Steps – Getting To Know You Session
If you are interested in 1 to 1 Mentoring with me, the next step is to book a 30 minute no obligation Zoom Session with me. This will give me the opportunity to find out more about you and your business and for you to assess if I am the right person to work with you. We can also agree on the frequency of your sessions.
Having decided that my training business needs to be revamped I started to work with Sharon as my business Mentor. I have also joined her Alert Service and taken part in my first Trainer Talk Live which introduced me to many like minded training business owners. Sharon is a real professional and has made a significant impact on what I am going to do and how. I am looking forward to my second mentoring session and know that this association with Sharon is going to led to success! Thank you!Sue Wright
Sharon is an excellent mentor. She has been a major factor in my business success in the past year.
Sharon understands the hidden blocks to success. She encourages and supports you to move past these and move ahead with your business.
In addition her insight and knowledge of the training industry is second to none. I would recommend Sharon to any trainer looking to take their business to the next level.Emer O’Leary
I have worked with Sharon as my Mentor in order for her to support me in building my training and coaching business. She has an empathetic manner which is gentle yet tough. She listened, explored issues with me, encouraged me to set goals and held me accountable for moving forward. During the time of the Mentoring I found the process to be extremely motivating and supportive and it helped me to work though difficult issues. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon as a Mentor.Barbara Wilson
Sharon is a superb Mentor and expert on the training industry. I worked with her for a number of sessions and found her insightful, engaging and thoroughly knowledgeable about every aspect of the training world. I’d fully recommend her to anyone considering using her services!Duncan Lewin
Sharon has been an excellent mentor to me – challenging me to look beyond the immediate and focus on the goals of my business. She has helped me develop marketing strategies designed to overcome the ‘feast and famine’ challenges that are common in freelance training.
I would recommend Sharon’s Mentoring sessions to anyone working as a freelance trainer and will likely use Sharon’s services again in the future when my business expands further.Natalie Britt
Working with Sharon as my business mentor was fun and uplifting. Her upbeat and positive approach gave me confidence when I felt unsure about how I could grow my business. She has a lot of knowledge and helped me with marketing and networking to the right audiences. She is a great mentor and I would recommend her to anyone who is setting out or who wants supporting in growing their own training business.Sara Rawstron
