Help a generation of entrepreneurs to reach their potential

“Mentoring is largely about understanding your mentee and their ambitions, providing encouragement and passing on knowledge and experience and explaining a few dos and don’ts along the way. The enjoyment for me is seeing energetic young people make their way in the world and if I can make a small contribution to that, then that’s all the better”
