 Testimonials from past Mentors and Mentees

​Mentors : 
  • ​It is a great programme for anyone who is serious about advancing their career. Sometimes we hit a stumbling block in our career and just need a little push or perspective to get across. I was lucky I found the help I needed here.​ 
  • This was a well put together programme that not only helps the mentee, but as a mentor it helped me reflect back on my own career journey and helped me focus on doing things that worked well for me in the past. 
  • ​It is our form of contributing part to the financial industry by guiding our juniors in terms of pitfalls, strategies and goal settings for their careers and other objectives
  • The Mentoring programme is very useful for young mentees to learn from the experience of the mentors and guide them in their career. I wish there were similar programs, 30 years ago when I started my career as an auditor. It is important for young professionals to find a career, not just for monetary reasons, but to enjoy their work and find challenges. It can also be a useful networking programme.
  • A great​ program that benefitted not just the mentee but the mentor too!​
