Comment on TIME  Programme

There are three key players that make the TIME program so successful – Mentee, Mentor and the very professional TIME administration.  Clearly the mentees benefit – the emotion in their graduation speeches underscores the depth of that benefit; but the Mentor also benefits, not only in giving back to the industry, but in coming to understand what motivates these young executives, what challenges they face, and how they are dealing with those. TIME is a very rewarding experience.
