The Moving Ahead Sport and Business Mentoring Scheme matches high-potential male and female leaders from sporting organisations to mentors within partner businesses. Each business is partnered with one sport. Current partnerships include Allianz and British Paralympic Association, while previous partnerships have included Ricoh and British Cycling.

The programme lasts twelve months, and is supported by mentoring experts at Moving Ahead throughout. In addition to mentoring, mentors and mentees also benefit from inspiring keynotes from speakers from within the Moving Ahead Speaker Academy, including Sarah Winckless MBE, Charlotte Monico, Kirk Vallis, Dame Helena Morrissey CBE and Alex Gregory MBE.  

The scheme is is rooted in the belief that no matter what our choice of career, we can all benefit profoundly from escaping our silos and engaging with different perspectives.

“I have seen vast improvements in my confidence in approaching certain situations within the workplace. I have learned how to approach ‘difficult’ situations, knowing my desired outcome, and to compromise. I have a much better outlook on my role and future. It’s been an incredible transformation.”
