My decision to become a Mosaic mentor was driven by my passion to help people together with my desire to develop my own self-confidence.
Your mentoring efforts could well be the spark that ignites the will and passion in your students to become entrepreneurs of the future – creating and growing exciting new businesses.
I am personally mentoring on the Secondary School Programme at Manchester Islamic High School for Girls working with fellow mentors to raise the aspirations of twenty young people. I was very unexpectedly sent an email just after my birthday in October from Mosaic’s Managing Director, Jonathan Freeman.
Many people query about mentoring with Mosaic and often ask what’s it like? We’ve asked Amran Majid from Capgemini about his experiences.
It is with great pleasure that I help and support the Apax-Mosaic Enterprise Challenge. This challenge is a perfect opportunity for young people to get a taster to what it is like becoming your own boss and starting your own business.
South East entrepreneur and Mosaic Mentor of the Year, Saira Majid, has some advice for young women on how they can smash the glass ceiling in business, and break down the cultural barriers to success.
I’m feeling rather sad and at a loose end! Mentoring provides you with a purpose, something different from your everyday routine and gives you an enormous boost of enthusiasm, self worth and happiness. The happiness comes from knowing that you are passing along helpful tips and advice, which will hopefully be of use to the mentees in the present and future.
The penultimate mentoring session! Today would be sort of a test for the mentees (and mentors) to see whether they had developed and retained any of the skills we had hoped they would learn over the course of the 6 weeks!
Well it is just 40 hours before the 2013 Virgin London Marathon. Yesterday I went to the Excel centre to register for my official numbers & position; no turning back (not that I ever considered doing so) but it is so very, very real now!
