CQ Champions Mentor Network

Bronze Level 

  • As part of the CQ Champions Mentor Network, a Bronze Level member will be provided with the contact details of two Silver or Gold Level members to whom they may reach out for advice about developing a business, lead generation, pricing of workshops, etc. This benefit will be provided only for the first year that the Bronze Level member is in the CQ Champions programme.

Silver or Gold Levels

  • As part of the CQ Champions Mentor Network, Silver and Gold members agree to have their contact details provided to new Bronze members. This is a one-year commitment between the Silver or Gold member and the new Bronze member. Each year, the Silver and Gold members may have new Bronze members to mentor. The mentorship responsibilities will be spread evenly among the Silver and Gold members.
  • The Silver and Gold members’ obligations include an initial check-in within 2 weeks of being assigned a new Bronze member, and then three other check-ins during the year if that Bronze member hasn’t already reached out with questions.
  • The Silver or Gold members will be expected to answer questions about developing a business, training, lead generation, etc. to the extent they are comfortable doing so. Any questions about CQ products, product pricing, CQ research, CQ Portal questions, or any other questions that a Silver or Gold member doesn’t feel comfortable answering, should be directed to a CQ Centre representative.
