Mini Exec Club 

The flagship programme for our Communitree brand, the Mini Exec Club was set up in November 2015. Based on and supported by the Lincolnshire Executive Club, a bi-monthly networking dinner organised by Streets Chartered Accountants and Langleys Solicitors LLP, the scheme pairs young, aspiring professionals with mentors from the Lincolnshire business community, allowing the worlds of business and education to interact in a focused and meaningful way.

During the programme Mini Execs have had rare insights into the world of work at top levels, staying in touch with their mentors with regular emails, phone calls and workplace visits; also receiving support with work experience placements, job and university applications.

The first 19 mini execs graduated in September 2016 and 2017's programme will launch in September this year. 

If you are a young person or business interested in becoming part of Mini Exec Club, please contact Laura Hopton by email on laura.hopton@the-ebp.co.uk or call 01522 574160.
