Who better to tell you what it’s like inside TIME’s renowned, six-month mentoring program than three recent graduates. We sat down with them for a bit of a fireside chat to find out everything you wanted to know about TIME.
So, meet Belinda, Emma and Piers .
What was the most rewarding part of your TIME experience?
Belinda: For me, it was simply how much I learnt about myself during those 6 months. My mentor helped me be honest with myself about where I was at with my role at the time, and he gave me the confidence to put my hand up and say, “This isn’t for me, and that’s OK.”
Once I had that realisation, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
Emma: There were so many rewarding parts. The friendship with my mentor, and the other mentees I have met along the way were all so inspiring. The lightbulb moments I had right through the program – there were quite a few that helped me grow personally and professionally.
Piers: For me, it was validation from my mentor that my thinking and ideas were, in fact, fundamentally sound.
How were you changed by your TIME experience?
Belinda: I am much more confident in myself and the decisions I make. And the network of the finest people in the industry I developed by being plugged into the TIME community is incredible.
Emma: I’m now brimming with confidence to make assured, non-emotional business decisions. I now take a strategic approach to my business, not just an operational one. Importantly, I know I cannot do everything, so I’ve learned to delegate effectively and trust.
Piers: Easy. TIME has given me the confidence to back myself.
Who should consider being a TIME mentee?
Belinda: Anyone wanting to better themselves both professionally and personally. Quite simply, you get out what you put in.
Piers: Anyone with ambitions to progress their career!
TIME mentors are unbelievably generous, sharing careers-worth of experience to accelerate those of the next generation of industry leaders.
Describe your TIME experience in a couple of words!
Belinda: Fantastic, Rewarding, Career Enhancing.
Emma: Life changing. Rewarding. Inspiring.
Piers: Timing. Was. Perfect.
