Understanding You

We understand that being your own boss is very rewarding but can be very lonely and challenging at the same time. Sometimes all you need is a sounding board for your ideas! A coach and a mentor is someone you can trust, and who understands the sector and helps, guides and supports you on your journey.

Bringing Accountability

Working with a business coach or mentor helps focus on the business side of the creative process, bringing accountability to your actions.

Tailored To Your Needs

Our services are tailored to your needs. No two clients are the same. So we offer a 15 minute free consultation for you to gauge my style of working and for me to get an idea about you and your needs.

Hi, I am Bhawna. I’m a qualified ILM Level 5 coach and mentor. I bring over 25 years of professional and business experience to Artisanry’s Business Hub. I have established and successfully ran my own HR and training business overseas in the past. My corporate experience spreads over two decades and three countries. I bring commercial acumen, alongside strong financial discipline to help you grow and develop. I am a social entrepreneur, having founded Artisanry Co, in 2019. This puts me in a unique position to understand the idiosyncrasies of social enterprises and the creative sector.

I am passionate about working with women. I want to help bring as many women into the workforce as possible. I believe that we, as women, have a latent economic power just waiting to be unleashed. As a businesswoman and a working mother, I understand the challenges that come with the territory.

I am also keen to work with, and support young emerging creatives and entrepreneurs. Young people are our future and with the right support and encouragement, they can unlock their potential and grow and develop as successful entrepreneurs.

As your coach, mentor and trainer, I can help realise your potential and achieve your goals. Give me a shout if you have any questions and we can have a chat to see if I am the best fit for you.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a form of learning where a coach facilitates development of a client. Coaching is non-directive, very much a facilitation process aimed to help the client define and achieve their goals.

What is mentoring?

Unlike a coach, a mentor can come from the same industry as the mentee and has industry experience to guide the mentee in their professional development. Mentoring is directive and leverages the professional experience of the mentor.

Coaching and mentoring sound similar? Is there a difference really?

Coaching and mentoring are similar but not the same! 

A mentor will leverage their shared experience of the subject and guide a  client. 

Whereas, a coach will help focus the client to find their own path.

What are the benefits of coaching and/or mentoring? Why do I need to spend this money?

A coach or a mentor is someone who acts as a ‘conscience and a guide’ to help you realise your potential. Someone who believes in your ability and helps you develop your confidence. They are a sounding board for your problems and be someone to discuss issues, blockages and concerns with in your career or personal development.
