GROW Mentorship program wave 1 has been an enormous success with 10 pairs of mentor-mentee who have been working together during almost 6 months now. See below the testimonial of one of our mentees:
"I had the opportunity to participate in the GROW program and after the mentors presentation, I chose Alexander as mentor, and he accepted me as mentee.
During our first meeting Alexander was good with setting up expectations and we had a great relationship throughout the program.
He was flexible enough and we have been able to organize our meetings in a way that suited both our busy schedules (online meetings only due to Covid restrictions).
I could learn from his experiences and guidance how to complete the steps to follow for PMP certification. In addition, we shared PM experience and challenges that enhanced this mentorship experience.
Based on my experience, I would recommend this program to any PM interested in enhancing his/her career and of course I would recommend Alexander as mentor.
Also, my congratulations are going to the rest of the team for organizing and leading this program which is a benefit to the PMI Belgium members.
If possible, after getting my certification, I would definitely like to be involved if such a mentorship program occurs in the future, as a potential mentor."
A big thank you to all the mentors who have contributed to this first mentorship wave:
Aleksandar Petkov, Annamaria De Sio, Bassam Sater, Erwin Verheyen, Guy Goossens, Jo Pauwels, Patrick Kamba, Pierre Jacquy, Stéphane De Vroey, Xavier Lescalier
It is, now, the time for the preparation steps of our second wave which will be organized following the time schedule below:
We will benefit from the summer period for the registration and preparation of our second wave; with a kick-off meeting somewhere during the second part of September.
