I've learned a lot from my mentor within the small time frame of a month. We've been in contact frequently via various mediums and met up at a convenient location. He has helped to expand my knowledge of the business world and has also presented me with books in effort to improve insight on various matters. I'm grateful for my mentor and hope to have the same outcome for the coming months.
I’m impressed with the match process because it is amazing how much my mentee and I have in common making communicating smooth and easy. As a first time mentor the guide book assisted me a lot and the programme has been great thus far
This program is highly fundamental and I encourage the expansion of this unit. I am already looking to be a part of it next year as this program has also helped me define aspects of myself.
