Training mentors – A long, but very enjoyable session online getting to meet the new mentors for the new 500 startups cohorts. There was an opportunity to meet old friends, but also an opportunity to meet a few new mentors too. There’s that “how come we’ve not met before ?” question when you realise that new mentors know lots of people that you know.
We did a few practical exercises and what was lovely was an opportunity to remember some of our own mentors and some of the character traits they possessed. For me an opportunity to remember the boost in career progress, the motivation to study management theory and some of the problem solving skills I still use today.
I’m looking forward to working with everyone.
