Alison Rose, CEO, NatWest Group plc Marco Alvera, CEO, Snam SpA

"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
CEO, NatWest Group plc

"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 CS Venkatakrishnan

"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

"I worked with two very experienced mentors for a year before I became CEO. I sought their counsel and identified challenges privately and confidentially. I always knew the mentoring was beneficial, but it was only when I became CEO that I fully appreciated how invaluable the advice and guidance had been in preparing me for the new role. There are some things that you can learn only from people who have been there and done it."
