    Making the Most of Being Mentored Training Course Reviews:

    "I loved the Personal Style Profile activity - Advisor, Counsellor, Driver, Coach. By having participants walk around and stand next to a profile of choice, it encouraged deep self-reflection on one's work style/personal style."

    Queensland Competition Authority (QCA)


    "Course provided a great overview of the mentor/ mentee relationship, how to approach mentors and how to manage expectations."

    "It was a really positive course and should be included in the regular schedule of professional development courses. It really opened my eyes to the fact that a mentor program should be more readily available to CDI staff."
