Today I attend a pilot mentorprogram in three counties (Hordaland, Troms and Sogn og Fjordane) within Innovation Norway (www.innovasjonnorge.no). The adepts are young entrepreneurs and mentors are more experienced business people.
It is wonderful to sit and hear a lot of people talk about mentoring and all the benefits. Especially Shahzad Rana (www.questpoint.no) with his long experience as an entrepreneur and in the judge in the program at TV2 (www.tv2.no) «Skaperen», with his dear focus on entrepreneurship. And Jeroen Scüssel (www.startnowcoaching) talking about the tools as an mentor`.
And Ingrid Roynesdal (www.roynesdal.no)talking about here experience with mentors as an adept. With here many years as an tennisplayer (winner of 14 norwegian championship and 15 years as an professional pianist. She has a very long experience as an adept using various mentors.
In the end Jennybeth Ekeland (www.aff.no) was talking about all the myths about adept and mentors and their relationship.
A very good day and I am looking forward to hear more about their year as an entrepreneur with an mentor. Good luck everyone!
