Having assisted in the development and October launch of City College Norwich School of Higher Education's Mentoring Programme, Rachel Blackburn kicked off her role as Mentor to two business students in an Executive box at Carrow Road, home of Norwich City Football Club.
The Mentees, Laura Key and Kasia Mydlik (pictured left and right, respectively), were eager to be mentored by Rachel after learning of her own story and experiences in business, including founding US2U Consulting.
Rachel plans to meet the Mentees several times over the next year to provide guidance and advice in line with the agreed targets and objectives for the Programme.
Laura commented on the first meeting, "It was really motivating and energizing. I will be putting your communication advice into practice immediately!"
"I am so appreciative of not only the way you have taken us under your wing but also of your generosity with your time and resources" said Kasia.
Thank you to Norwich City FC for their contribution to the City College Norwich Mentoring Programme.
