A key component of Connect London is the availability of volunteer mentoring of members of CLBC. This mentoring is generally supplied by Connect London Champions. The extent of mentoring support is limited by the resources pledged to Connect London and the needs of the members, as decided by the resource broker manager or following triage meetings. The triage sessions are part of the mentoring support, but are offered irrespective of the availability of mentors. The triage session is fee of charge with the exception of the annual fee of £100 plus VAT. This membership fee will become compulsory from 1/10.2009 and cover the annual triage session to assess the progress of members, so that the progress of Connect London itself can be quantified. Connect London collects the following main metrics: businesses created, sales growth, jobs created (or preserved), investments made into member companies, and training sessions delivered.
