Viktoria McCann
Director of Global Events at Unleash Group

"Our mentoring session with my mentee went really great! My mentee is a very talented, career oriented individual with a fantastic personality. I felt like during the session that he just needed some advice on how to continue to work towards his desired position and needed to hear some validation that he is indeed on the right track."

Costi Karayannis
Managing Directorm, Education & Learning at Capita

"I really enjoyed meeting with my mentee. She was motivated, articulate and was nice to talk to. We talked about future career moves and how to fill any short term gaps in employment she might have coming up. She enjoyed the call and found it helpful to speak to someone outside of the legal world she is currently in.

Nadine Blochberger
Future Impact Advisor at Imagimo

"After 7 sessions together, I can see a shift from a young woman who struggles with self-doubt and self-worth and puts others first. To a woman who starts to trust, and value herself and started to ask better questions instead of just following the beliefs and authority of others."
