Cheryll Rawbone, Chair of Arthur J Gallagher in Coventry, began mentoring a young PR professional in April. Speaking about our mentoring scheme she said: “Looking back I would have really appreciated the opportunity to have a sounding board in the early part of my career so it’s a pleasure to be able to do that for a young professional.
“This process empowers the young professionals involved. It helps them develop a structured career plan against which they can make progress.
“My mentee has benefitted from getting the perspective of an employer and seeing a reflection of the way they portray themselves but I’ve also learnt from hearing her perspective and giving her the space to try out her ideas.
“It’s an incredibly rewarding and interesting process.”
