Cross-Member Mentoring Programme

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new cross-member mentoring programme.  This programme will be led by experienced mentoring consultant Deanne Logan, and aims to bring mentors and mentees together from across the breadth of our membership, helping individuals to develop new skills whilst also expanding knowledge of the many different areas of rail freight.

Please do share this information across your business; anyone in an RFG Member Company can sign up to be a mentor or mentee, and the programme is free of charge.  Please note that in order to maximise the time available for the mentoring programme we aim to conclude the matching process for 2023 by 17th February.

What is the mentoring programme?

This programme aims to help develop rail freight skills across the sector, and support

individuals with their own personal development. You can join the programme as a mentor, mentee or both. Based on your individual skills, experience and needs, you will be matched with someone from a different organisation, where you will meet virtually or in person approximately once a month during 2023. Both mentors and mentees will be supported with training and resources before you get started to ensure the relationship is as effective as possible.

What is mentoring?

Development that involves people connecting to share knowledge, experience, advice and support.


Who is it for?

Anyone who is working in an RFG member company – you don’t have to be in a rail freight specific role to join the programme.

Can I have more information, please?

Of course. Please join an optional 30-minute information call here

This will be recorded and shared on RFG’s youtube channel.
