Testimonial 2021
I recently completed the Level 2 Mentor Training with Kerrie and absolutely loved the structure and approach that she shared with us. I have informally mentored and coached many throughout my career but wanted to validate my approach to ensure I was delivering the best value to my mentees.  Kerrie is a great teacher as well as mentor and I have learned so much from her and thank her for giving me the confidence to venture into the world of more formal business mentoring. DEFINITELY would recommend Kerrie to any individual, or corporation looking to learn about mentoring or starting their own mentoring program.            Kim Gowing, Co-creating the journey with C level to win hearts and minds

Testimonial from previous level one training

Thank you (and Sue) for an invaluable day, it was so beneficial to have the opportunity to practice mentoring, for me it was an important shift of mindset as so often my role is about de-escalation and counselling so really really helpful to get the feedback. Thank you for the attachments too.

I particularly liked the real-life mentoring stories and the small group made it a really positive and safe environment to share experiences.

Testimonials from Level Two training

I recently completed the Level 2 Mentor Training with Kerrie and absolutely loved the structure and approach that she shared with us. I have informally mentored and coached many throughout my career, but wanted to validate my approach to ensure I was delivering the best value to my mentees. The real value though I got from engaging with Kerrie, was when she suggested that to demonstrate my ability, I should have a mentoring session with her – mentoring her. Though scared to death, it was absolutely brilliant and was a significant confidence booster to me and reinforced that I know what I am doing!:) Kerrie is a great teacher as well as mentor (and a good mentee!!) and I have learned so much from her and thank her for giving me the confidence to venture into the world of more formal business mentoring. DEFINITELY would recommend Kerrie to any individual, or corporation looking to learn about mentoring or starting their own mentoring program.                                                                                                                  Kim Gowing, Co-creating the journey with C level to win hearts and minds

A lot of very useful stuff came up and the practice pieces provided a really good learning opportunity.  Thank you.
