MENTEE TESTIMONIALS

Participating in the IABC London mentorship program has been a great learning opportunity for me as I was able to connect with an expert in the communications field. My mentor advised me on my current work and suggested areas for future career development. We connected right away as we shared with each other our experiences about the joys and challenges of working in communications. She helped me to identify emerging trends and develop strategic priorities that improved my performance and the quality of my work.
