We have a little game for you. Think of a list of successful people. Go on, have a think. Who are your inspirations?

Whether they learnt from an official mentor, a supportive colleague or a loving family member – almost all successful people attribute their success to mentorship.
A survey of Fortune 500 companies found that CEOs attribute mentorship as one of the top factors affecting career growth. That’s because whether you’re the founder of a start-up, a working Mum or at the height of your career, mentorship has many benefits. Boosting your pay-grade, reaching your goals or diversifying your career are just the start. Still need convincing?
Finding a great mentor is like discovering the key to a whole new world. A world full of important industry connections, insider’s opportunities and like-minded people. Never underestimate the power of networking. A mentor acts like your VIP ticket into the coolest party in town.
Mentors can act as career advisors and opportunity hunters – getting you to the next wrung of the ladder with ease. Gain expert advice and connections with a mentor by your side and say, ‘Hello promotion!’.
A life without feedback is a life without change. A mentor is in the unique position to give you constructive feedback, designed to help you. A mentor is like your GPS to success.
Reaching goals is hard enough. Reaching them without accountability is almost impossible. Trust us, having someone nag (we mean, encourage!) you is the best way to kick those goals.
Imagine having a genie in a bottle, or a Fairy God Mother. Add industry expertise and a wealth of knowledge and you have yourself a mentor. Problems become solutions with the magic of mentorship on your side.
Two heads are better than one – especially when one of those heads is an industry leader and renowned professional! A mentor brings valuable and unbiased perspective and can help you make wise decisions for yourself and your career.
