We all need a mentor. A mentor is someone who has their interests vested in our interests, with no ulterior motive but our own growth and flourishing. A mentor inspires, pushes, challenges and guides us. In our humility, we become open to being coached. Indeed the bond between a mentor and a mentee is sacred. The crisis in our society is that young and aspiring individuals rarely have such mentors in their lives and so their growth and direction are dearly missing.


During the programme, each author is assigned a mentor and forging relationships with them is the heart and soul of our approach.

The mentors, in their own right, are excellent communicators and critical analysts. Not only do they mentor, but they offer their time to engage in discussions as panelists and as debate or discussion chairs. If you need someone to chair a debate or conduct an interview, get in touch.
