Course leaders

Rebecca jones

When she’s not doing her real job, Rebecca (Bee) is our team coach and full time cheerleader, whose role is to make sure our team is happy. She’s an incredibly enthusiastic leader and marketing professional driven by results and a passion for success.

She has a killer combination of experience in small and fast-growth businesses, with all the skills of a fully trained marketing manager from big business such as P&G, and Amazon.

Bee started with a team of 2 at just 24 years old and was entirely overwhelmed, especially when that team grew to 20 at aged 25. Desperately reading management books did not prepare her for the real life humans that looked at her expectantly every day, but since then she has managed teams of up to thirty and now thrives in teaching others how to do so too.

The deets...

This is a 5 week course with live sessions every Friday from 12:30-1:15PM.

A combination of recorded content and live Zoom sessions, together requiring around 2 hours per week. There will be some light homework between sessions to keep the ideas we cover fresh.

The weekly live sessions will be interactive, but if you have to miss one we will circulate the content and recordings.

Being matched with Shelly through Up Club’s mentoring programme has been the most rewarding experience imaginable for my first time as a professional mentor.

In the time since I started mentoring Shelly, it’s been incredible to watch Shelly grow in confidence at work, and to see how much she has evolved her way of processing certain scenarios. From memory, Shelly didn’t have one specific goal in mind when we first started mentoring, so we worked together to understand what matters most to her, to identify anything in her day-to-day that could be improved and started discussing topical scenarios that came up in her work. Since being matched by Up Club, Shelly has gone from strength to strength and has recently taken a new role as part of a new team at an international company.
I am beyond grateful for this opportunity that Up Club has given me to meet such an incredible person, and the process could not have been any easier as they provide lots of useful guides and advice, as well as support any time you need it!

Having Fraser’s support and mentorship over the last year has been so impactful for me in so many different ways. From having a go-to support system when it comes to all things work as well as providing a much needed fresh perspective to technical challenges I face in my role and career transitions – Fraser has never failed to be a positive and uplifting influence to guide me through it all. I am beyond grateful and would emphatically recommend anyone who is considering looking for a mentor 🙏🏾
