What does mentoring mean to you?
First and foremost the Mentor-Mentee is about a relationship, you are building a friendship which is a 2-way street. It is about the long term, it is generally not a short-term once off process. It is about sharing wisdom, ideas, opinions and guidance. It is about helping people take positive steps forward in their business or careers.

To have the wonderful experience of getting in touch with a Mentor, please contact the Mentoring Program Coordinator, Nicky Bicket (1973F) at [email protected]
