We will be holding 2 webinars in May. These are not required, but may be helpful for some. This can be a crucial point for some mentorship relationships- after the ‘get to know you’ phase and leading into where the real progress happens with individual goals.

This will give you a chance to gauge your progress and collect tips for getting to the next point.
