Previous participant testimonial

"I have found being a mentee an invaluable experience. To be able to build a relationship with another manager corporate services and share information in a safe environment enables you to gain a new confidence in your role. Being a manager corporate services can be a lonely position in a school. Having a mentor reinforces that you are not alone and that ‘we are all in the same boat’. Networking is the greatest gift we can give ourselves in this role."

Suzanne Rowley, Manager Corporate Services, John Curtin College of the Arts, September 2017.
