"eye-opener", "excellent", "enthusiastic", "challenging" were some of the words used to describe round one of the Sydney Chapter mentoring program.
Once again, we'd like to thank the participants from round one for their patience and giving their time and experience; we invite them to continue with the program should they wish. The program ran from Sept-Nov 2012 and involved 15 pairings. We elicited feedback from this inaugural group to improve the program and are ready to roll out and expand the next session.
I've tried going through the system here to get a mentor but have found it to be unsuccessful, so I figured I'd try my luck with you all on the discussion board.
I read the board every once and a while and it seems as though there are great people here who could effectively serve as mentors so I would be so appreciative of your help and guidance - even if that meant an email once and a while.

Your thoughts and experiences are greatly appreciated!
