Many members have connected to mentors through The Outperformer, working on a variety of career development challenges. Here are real people, with real stories!
Both mentors I've connected with were most generous with their time and very open with providing information to support my professional development and exploring the local market after moving to Sydney from Perth
It was extremely helpful to be able to have a conversation that was not within a work context, meaning I felt more comfortable asking a range of questions. My mentor gave me great advice on what he looks for in employees he manages, which gave me a better understanding of how I could improve my work performance.
Being a young person who does not carry a great deal of experience, I felt that having my mentor guide me, and provide useful insights into careers and the different paths that are available was very important.
I paired-up with an experienced CFO who I meet regularly and am continually expanding my network through his contacts. It is the ideal platform to get exposed to the right people where opportunities will be created if you are willing to put in the effort to make it happen.
