“Thanks again for organizing yesterday’s meeting. I genuinely found it very helpful. I’ve been lucky enough to be part of a lot of mentoring programs. Normally it’s great to get the support, but the advice doesn’t really stick much. Yesterday was different. The advice provided by my mentors was all really relevant and eye-opening and worthwhile. So thank you for making it happen.”
