Testimonials

The intelligence, insight and creativity was unparalleled

It's just been great speaking to (my Channel 4 mentor) because I leave inspired, thinking anything is possible! And I feel it's an exciting place to be right now, in the industry at my age and without any ties

The mentoring has been incredible. I feel I have so many more options now... It has also helped me feel part of a wider community with a clearer purpose, which also made a big difference

BBC Commissioning Executive

The wonderful mentoring network has already secured me my next job…and I have found the support (my mentor) has offered to be extraordinarily helpful.  I called him only recently and, as you'd expect, he gave good counsel
