Empowering and educating our future leaders with guidance and information from top leaders

Mentoring Programme

This is a tailored innovative service where resources, education, experiences and information are shared to speed up the success process for our future leaders. Our mentoring programme supports students in the difficult transition from full-time student to employment. We have teamed up with mentors from top global organisations to be part of our mentor list.

Reverse Mentoring Programme


This covers business, finance, law and politics. Diverse students and our alumni leaders act as mentors to senior leaders. Mentors share their perspective and experiences and in so doing inform those making leadership and business decisions to help increase diversity, equity and inclusion. These are leaders at the top of their profession who are CEO’s of global organisations, judges, managing directors, board directors, Members of Parliament and so on where everyone can learn from each other.


Our mentors and mentees improve their knowledge, skills and understanding exchange and reduce silo mentality. Reverse mentoring is also known to have a positive impact by listening and learning. A few examples include becoming more sophisticated about technology, social media, driving culture change and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.

The foundation's mentoring of students and up and coming talented young and mature individuals is one of the most effective ways to learn with and from each other and build the confidence needed to succeed.

The mentoring programme helped me get a job offer within 3 weeks after several months of rejection. This mentoring is a must for anyone who needs help with their career goals.

The mentoring programme has given me the tools and the confidence that I needed. I highly recommend a session if you want to take or regain control of your career!

The mentoring programme has been an invaluable source of knowledge and encouragement to me. It had such a huge impact on boosting my self-confidence as well as helping me to make stronger job applications. I have benefitted far more than I could have hoped for from mentoring.
