“This is such an honor to be part of the program and thrilled to have the opportunities to meet with many great young mentees. It has been rewarding as well to share my career experience and advice to the mentees to see them grow to be a better them and achieve their goal. Thanks you again for this great opportunity and look forward to the next.”
Michelle Qiu (Mentor) Director, Asian Banking at CIBC Hong Kong
“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.”
Jeffrey Hau (Mentor) Partner, Risk Consulting at KPMG
