Hear what our members had to say

  • Mentoring has enabled me to have someone that I can trust to talk to. I’ve never had a mentor in my life and having one now I don’t want to be without one ever. It really makes a difference to your progression.

  • My mentor has greatly exceeded my expectations both in terms of her impressive background and her expert mentoring skills. She always guides our conversations just where they need to go and I look forward to every meeting.

  • My goal as a mentor is to give back to emerging leaders. I love to learn about their particular challenges and ask good questions to help them experiment and gain wisdom as leaders. All of my mentees have grown professionally. That is extremely satisfying.

  • Great communication. Goes above and beyond. Always there to help out. I know I am developing from this mentoring.
