Participant Testimonials



“It was great for me being part of the process, and developing the connection with [my mentee]. I really like him a lot, and he is a future superstar in whatever he does. For me just being able to watch him grow is a reward in itself.”

“I think it’s so important to have someone like [my mentor] when I’m just beginning, because you don’t know the workforce and your network is limited. Having a mentor means there’s someone in your corner,”.

 “It’s good to have someone interested in your development who’s been very successful in their field – it gives you confidence."

Career Ready Mentee, 2016



Having completed an MBA at La Trobe 10 years ago, I found it very interesting to connect with and assist a current MBA student.The experience of coaching an intelligence, motivated, and ambitious person outside of my normal work environment was very rewarding and helped me test and build my coaching skills

I got some great feedback from [my mentee] last week who has secured a new job and let me know that she doesn’t believe she would have been able to do that without my guidance – great feedback for me and a positive outcome for your program.
