On Thursday 31 March we were provided with an opportunity to host an event at the recently refurbished Gap Solutions Lounge within the American Express Community Stadium.
On arrival from 6.00pm we were provided with a welcome drink and enjoyed an initial period of open networking. We are thrilled that Andrew Blackman, Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex provided some opening words before we entered some ’roundtable’ discussion led by our experienced volunteer mentors, covering some of the common themes we encounter within our 1:1 mentoring.
We also heard from our event sponsors; Ashdown Hurrey, accountants and Reid Briggs, insurance brokers both of whom have been generous in supporting this event financially. Additionally, we were pleased to unveil our new website on the evening kindly built by our marketing partner, Youbiquity Ltd.
For the final formal part of the event we met with some of our most recent mentees, to hear about their success stories following a mentoring placement.
