Staff feedback

  • It's so reassuring to see an organisation supporting new employees. Attending this session will certainly help me to focus in on achieving goals over the next 12 months - SinĂ©ad Creedon
  • I think it was very well conducted and effective. It refreshed my thinking on key concepts and approaches to being both a mentee and a mentor.
  • Excellent session. It provided clarity on what should be expected from a Mentor and how best to utilise the support and connection.
