"My CMi mentoring has been energising and enlightening and a great support, and provided constructive challenge. Having two very different but highly experienced Chairs as mentors provided me with a sounding-board unlike any other. I could test and debate real issues in a totally confidential way that I didn’t have access to in any other forum”
Alison Rose

"The quality of the CMi mentoring conversations is unrivalled. The opportunity to exchange thoughts with people who have been there before is extremely valuable for me."

Jakob Stausholm, CEO, Rio Tinto Steve Rowe

"They say that history repeats, but throughout your career you are often faced with ‘firsts’. Having two very experienced mentors has been invaluable for me when navigating unknown terrain from significant unplanned management changes while undergoing a CEO selection process, and starting up as a CEO. The mentoring process has provided me with important perspectives and above all an inner calmness and clarity to do what I think is right."
Jakob Stausholm
CEO, Rio Tinto

"Having the chance to discuss and debate issues with independent voices has proven to be crucial to my personal development, allowing me to really focus on the opportunities ahead."
