Our network had a great night celebrating the value of mentoring at the Future of London summer party.
We heard powerful testimony from mentees from our leadership programmes about the impact that a committed mentoring relationship can have on their professional development. Mentoring does not take up a lot of time, but that time has huge impact. It’s a learning experience for mentors too.
Thanks to all the mentors, mentees, alumni and everyone else from the Future of London network who made the night such a success. Thanks also to our hosts, Pollard Thomas Edwards.
Congratulations to all the mentors who were nominated for awards by their mentees and particularly thanks to David Lunts, a Future of London co-founder who recently stepped down from the board. He remains a valued mentor and tireless champion of leadership development in the built environment sector.
