My name is Andrew Latham. I worked in the Energy business for 42 years, in 26 different countries. I also have a lot of experience in mentoring programs, having helped to establish mentoring programs at a major corporation, and having personally mentored many people in areas such as technical skills, career planning, personal skills development, personal confidence building and public speaking. I enjoy the role of mentor in that it connects me to so many interesting people and different experiences and viewpoints. I have learned as much or more that I have been able to give over the years and I consider mentoring to be one of the most enjoyable experiences of my career.
Now I am retired and, while I do miss the corporate world somewhat, it does give me more time for doing the things I enjoy like mentoring, providing time to charities and Non-profits, landscape gardening and travel.
