Why am I on Connect?

I find helping other individuals who are starting in a similar position to myself very rewarding. Mentoring at my previous job was very fulfilling, coaching individuals to help them find the answers for themselves and help them realise their potential, handle difficult situations and solving problems.

Whom would I like to mentor?

Someone who has a good idea of what they want to achieve, but may not necessarily have all of the skills necessarily needed presently
