“It is not just “another” mentorship programme, but one that builds bridges and connects the dots. I was privileged to be assigned a mentor who seeks to inspire and support. From small talks to identifying my interests and constantly introducing opportunities, my mentor has offered me all the support that I seek. Take the most out of this experience: don’t save the best for last, but always share your stories. Inspire and Be Ready to Be Inspired.”
Pearl Mak (Mentee) Management Trainee at L’Oréal
“Mentorship was fulfilling for both the mentor and the mentee – I learned about the mindset of younger generations, the speed to action and the drive for innovation. Time well spent and gained a peer in the process.”
