We have helped over 600 people with their career challenges - from growing in their roles, learning new skills, making a career change to looking for a new job. Read below what our mentees say about their experience with the program.
I can only recommend mentoring with Alex. Even though we both have pretty demanding work calendars, we always managed to find a common path and I didn't feel like I had to, on the contrary, we always came up with something interesting to solve during our calls and many times even an hour-long "lesson" wasn't enough.
Thank you for connecting me with my mentor Klara. Every time we meet, it moves me further, closer to my goals. Halfway through the program I feel much more confident, I know myself and my goals better. I have valuable insight into my practice and I am looking forward to seeing what else our meetings will bring!
Kudos to Femme Palette for this amazing networking program between mentors and mentees. There is a true connection in which we forget who is mentoring whom. A rich experience.
I didn't know much about mentoring before and I had no idea what we were going to do in the sessions and how we were going to achieve our goals. But my mentor was very experienced and through a combination of conversations and exercises I gradually started to improve. I felt better prepared for challenging situations at work, but also in my personal life. In addition, I was able to take inspiration from my mentor's experience and use it in my own work, which is what I appreciate most now.
Mentoring was a great opportunity for me to overcome job insecurities. Regular meetings over six months systematically moved me forward and contributed to my growth and confidence.
Through my mentorship program with Monique I gained many new perspectives for my day-to-day work. Coming from a different professional background, her outside perspective on our business was particular helpful and enlightening. A great experience, professional and personal.
Go for it and open yourself up. Do not hesitate:)
I am glad that I was able to try out the program and have fun with an experienced mentor who pushed me forward in my work processes and projects.
I can't even describe by words how grateful I am that I decided to join in Femme Palette mentoring program. My mentor Klárka is the best personal fit to me. She is very supportive and she can always bring out the best in me. Thanks to her advices and wisdom, I was able to find a new job that is perfect for gaining new experiences.
I feel like I'm moving on and I'm getting a lot of great tips from my mentor Martina.
Femme Palette is amazing initiative what helps me improve my Manager approach. I am so glad that I was a part of the conference and started to be part of community. With my mentor Lenka we are sharing so many insights and she is giving me good hints from her perspective. My next goal is to be Mentor as a part of Femme Palette as well. Thank you! :)
I am really grateful for Veronika as she is able to help me not only with the goals that we have set up with Dagmar (my coach) but also be flexible wherever I feel like I need help. Thanks to her the timeline of onboarding new clients shortened and I am now more aware of what kind of clients I should go after and how to reach out to them.
You matched me so well that even when my job situation changed dramatically during the first weeks of mentorship, my mentor Marco helped me navigate this situation with specific recommendations and advice.
Both Lucie and Jana's empathic and creative approach to coaching and mentoring helped me think about myself and my work in a new, different, bolder way.
I absolutely love my mentor Lucie. Thanks to this programme I realized you are never too old to become a mentee. Seeing your business from a different perspective is simply priceless.
Mentoring with Tetiana was a great experience! She helped me to achieve my goals and showed me another perspective which I didn't see before. I was looking forward to each mentoring session and after each session I learnt something new.
Having someone who is ready to help and answer my curious questions is something that motivated and inspired me on my career path. Thanks for that.
My mentor gave me the perspective I needed in order to negotiate better and be able to read the room with a broader perspective. I'd definitely recommend to have this type of experience!
Femme Palette found me a mentor that was really well-matched to me both professionally and personally. My mentor gave me lots of helpful advice on how to navigate different situations and I feel more confident because of his help. Thank you to Femme Palette for organising all of this!
What a journey! With Terezia's help, I was able to work on my blind spots and discovered an unknown part of myself. Thanks to this, I have at least two new projects in my head that I would like to start.
Having both mentored and been a mentee before, this was the first time exploring having an external mentor. The program and matching was brilliant and I've really enjoyed the 12 hours with my mentor Hana. The whole experience has been incredibly valuable to me both personally and professional in achieveing the goals that we set.
6 months of an intensive thinking about my career, while having someone to support and challenge me. That's how I would describe my mentoring experience. Even though it was tough sometimes to find the energy and time, my mentor was always there to help me push through. I have a clear vision now and I am already walking on my newly defined path.
Through valuable input, calm presence, thought-provoking questions and non-judgmental listening, my awesome mentor Jana helped me switch from academia to Training and L&D and find a job that I love. I gained confidence, learned to take more responsibility and changed my mindset about full-time work. I now understand L&D better and have a clearer vision of my career path.
I worked with Anna as a mentor during 6 months. My main goals were to get more clear on my career development strategy and make solid steps towards my career ambitions. Now, looking back I see that this mentoring program with Anna gave me much more than I expected. I feel much more confident in myself as a professional and see many possibilities in applying my skills and abilities in the direction that fulfills my dream career. I am especially grateful to Anna for her empathetic listening and challenging me, and a lot of invaluable advice she gave me very mentoring session.
It is priceless to have an incentive, reason, will, confidence ...and fun to share my job-related challenges with somebody as experienced, professional, helpful, listening, and warm like Christina. And, at the same time, to have an opportunity to go through difficult moments at her workplace. I definitely gained more insight into leadership skills and techniques and how to apply them to my everyday work life.
The Leadership Program of Femme Palette has been a true blessing in my life. I have discovered a power within me that I didn't know about thanks to all their workshops and mentoring sessions, became more confident and have a clear vision of what to do to keep making progress in my life - as a professional and as an individual. I would recommend it a thousand times to everyone! :-)
I recently completed the Femme Palette leadership program, and I have to say, it was an incredible experience. The program provided me with invaluable insights and tools to develop my leadership skills, but what truly made the experience exceptional was my mentor. Yana's guidance, support, and expertise helped me to grow more than i ever imagined. I highly recommend the program to anyone looking to take their leadership to the next level.
Great idea and very well structured program which helps you develop your own skills with the help of your mentor. My mentor Tesa really helped me to see bigger picture and develop my own plan how to grow.
I recommend FP Leadership to anyone trying to grow in their career as a leader (manager, team lead, etc). The mentoring sessions definitely helped me grow and learn new tools that I can employ in my role and the exchange with other participants in the workshops was inspiring!
It is very nice to have a mentor who helps you to see things from a different perspective, to evaluate, navigate and handle things better at work. I'd like to recommend a mentoring programme to anyone who wants to get ahead at work.
My lack of self-confidence make me apply for the program. I am just in the middle of it, and I can honestly say, that the things my mentor show/say me, opened new perspectives to me. To get another point of view from someone more experienced, who is here to help me is really mind-blowing.
I have entered this program for the second time and it was the best decision I have ever made. It moved my business by miles. I worked with an amazing mentor, with whom we really clicked and it was great (but hard, do not take this wrong) months. I pushed myself, my limits, my expectations over the top and I reached for the stars. If you are thinking to join, do it! Money well spent!
The program was beneficial for me. My mentor Vladimir convinced me that showing emotions is not a "weakness". It made me realize that we are all dealing with essentially the same thing and looking for the right way to move our team and company forward. I will and already do apply some of the insights in my private life. And my kids approve :).
It was my first experience and I am thrilled. With my mentor Jana, we had a lot of common work and non-work topics to share, even though we are each from different fields. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to be inspired and inspire others at the same time.
I am very happy that I was able to join the mentoring program. It's great to have a person with whom you can discuss different situations in the work environment and who doesn't judge you, but listens to you and gives you their point of view on the situations. My mentor Dalila was exactly that person. Every meeting with her enriched me by sharing experiences or a different point of view. At the same time, I was very inspired by her life energy and attitude.
I had a great mentor, Barbora, who helped me to move along things I couldn't on my own. I now have a better overview of the projects that are already underway and I'm better with my time when I'm planning more projects. Mentoring has been very beneficial for me.
Mentoring has been very beneficial for me. I gained a lot of new knowledge and experience that I can put into practice. I have learned to look at things through different eyes and feel more confident in my role.
It's great that this program can connect you with someone who sees the world through your eyes, shares your common interests and is much more experienced than you and can advise you. It's only up to you what you would like to know.
I was matched with an amazing mentor, Jana, who's helped me reach goals and start a new career! Thanks to her I am now much more confident in what I do and I've had the chance to attend several recommended activities that have helped me find connections as well. I am very happy with what we did these past six months!
My mentor was extremely competent in her field! She helped me to make some light into my life and career goals, becoming at the same time a friend and my number one supporter during the whole mentoring program!
I joined the Femme Palette Leadership program in the time while I was switching over to the manager position. All the program parts – meeting inspiring women, workshops on leadership topics & great match with my mentor – helped me on my journey of being a good manager & leader. The program has brought me new perspectives and topics for managing both myself and the team.
This program is a jewel. It has absolutely overcome my expectations! Not only I was matched with the mentor that understood very well, what I need and what might interest me on my career path, but I also have a clear plan of what to do to achieve my goal.
Can´t recommend high enough! I gained not only advice and insight that helped me navigate challenging situations in my career but impacted me on a personal level as well. My mentor was my inspiration and I loved her energy and drive! I feel I developed and progressed as a person thanks to the programme. Also, the whole programme is very well organized. I already participated in mentoring programme through different organisation and Femme Pallette is definitely the winner.
If you have a chance to participate in Femme Palette mentoring program, make sure you do! I got absolutely amazing mentor Lilla who had a relevant experience and answer to almost all of my questions and she tremendously helped me to develop my leadership skills and out of the box thinking. A time well spent indeed!
I really love the program, before I joined, I was lost due my fast transition from pure development role towards more technical focused leadership role. I was connected with really amazing mentor Alaia and she helped me to work on several key areas where I definitivelly improved during the program. Example of key areas we focused on: stress management, handling difficult situations in team, accepting own mistakes, working on creating collaborative environment. At the beginning I was afraid, but programm is really inclusive and I would recommend it to everybody any time.
I learned a lot with my Adriana, my mentor. She helped me a lot gaining more confidance and giving me usefull tips to my daily routine. Even when I was not sure about the subject I want to develop in each session, she pushed me and all of them were super productive.
It's important to click with your mentor. If you do (and I was lucky enough to) it can be an interesting developmental experience. I learned a lot about myself in a very non-violent way, and started to look at things a little more from a distance, in context. I believe that I understand my role and the roles of my colleagues better and this experience will be a daily help in my work.
Thanks to the mentoring program at Femme Palette, I have not only met the professional goals I had set at the beginning of the program, but also gained a trustworthy guide on my journey. My mentor Olga has made every session challenging, enriching, inspiring and fun by sharing her expertise, insights and experience. I would truly recommend the program to anyone who is looking for self-development and/or career boost.
Adélka wasn't just a mentor for me, she is much more! An inspiration, a coffee buddy, and a hardworking woman, who made me more self-confident and better educated not only in People Ops. I am so happy that this match happened!
I'm very glad to work with Pavla and Femme Palette. Thank you for making me more confident and clearer about my goals and the way to reach them!
Shubhi really helped me clarify what I want in my professional career and the steps to get there. I could not be happier with what I've learnt.
Great experience, a great match, and great gain. Definitely not my last time going through this journey. My mentor Brooke was amazing and I can't thank her enough. If you haven't tried mentoring yet you are truly missing on something.
I had the chance of joining the program and I would recommend it to everyone. With my mentor we identified focus areas that could benefit me throughout my career and she pushed me to use all the tools and connections I have to make the most of my current position.
The mentoring was an excellent experience for me. Just in six months, I have so much clarity about what I want to do in the future and how I want to work on my career. Thanks to my mentor Tina, I learned many things about social media, presentation skills, and strengths that helped me achieve my initial goals and much more. I would recommend mentoring to everyone. It is a life-changing experience.
This has been a great experience, and I have learned so much in such a small amount of time. I thoroughly recommend this program to anyone looking to advance their leadership skills. I will take what I discussed with my coach into all areas of my professional life.
I am grateful for FP experience. The organisation was perfect from the very beginning & they matched me with an amazing mentor Christina. All the sessions were insightful, she provided me with guidance around soft skills, project management & career path. Always aligned with real experience & examples. I gained much more then I initially set goal for.
It is great to have a mentor and be at in mentoring program Femme Palette, because you will have an opportunity to start a new life from a new page, with support of a professional who can help you to realize your own goals and starting moving towards them. I am very grateful for this opportunity for me and will recommend this program for women in a difficult situation who don't know what to do. You must try the mentoring program and you will see your life will change for the better!
I recently transferred from academic research to UX research and I was the first and only UX researcher at my company. Louise helped me develop both my soft skills and hard skills and provided emotional support, feedback and very helpful tips. It has helped me grow into my new role much faster and gain confidence as an ambassador of research in my company. I wish I had access to mentoring like before, it's a complete game changer and almost feels like an unfair advantage. Mentoring for everyone!
I really profited a lot from the mentoring program. My mentor Nahal gave me very valuable feedback and was able to help me with different development points such as communication in situations under pressure. I feel more confident about my leadership skills now . Not only me but also my team benefits from this in our daily business.
During my time on the programme I surprised myself at how much I learned and achieved. My mentor Nicole stretched me outside of my comfort-zone, but without breaking my boundaries.Everything I have gained from my experience will allow me to continue pushing forwards with my current and future goals, and I am now confident to share my new found knowledge with my own teams, in the hope this supports them on their journey's too.
Mentoring sessions with Marta made me feel more confident as a leader and helped me with understanding my working style better. I have felt supported and listened throughout the whole experience and already see the positive impact that the program has on my leadership skills, day to day work and team’s dynamic. Recommend to everybody who is looking for opportunities to develop their leadership skills!
Our whole team had the possibility to participate in Femme Palette mentoring program and it was one of the best experiences we can have. The organization is great, everything worked perfectly and I really appreciate it's only up to you and your mentor on what you would like to focus on. It's really valuable to have somebody who can help you with all aspects of your work and personality. You can develop your hard knowledge/soft skills but you can also discuss interesting topics/your struggles and it helps you to see things from a different perspective and thanks to that in a bigger picture.
Mentoring helped me with my time management and also to be more proactive. I overachieved my KPI’s and learned how to give feedback to my manager. I was able to achieve one of my goals - to become a manager. With my mentor, I focused on learning how to lead and manage people in my team.
I've just finished mentoring sessions with my mentor Alina. She helped me get broader view on the testing of SW and quality assurance at all. I learned also to better prioritize my tasks and to focus on things that matters in daily routine.
I had never experienced mentoring as such before. That is if I don't consider support from more senior colleagues in different positions as mentoring. Connecting with my mentor outside of my parent organization brought me ideas from a different perspective. The perspective and opinions have helped me in grounding myself and anchoring my needs. Through mentoring, I have moved forward at least two years and the reason for this is that I have gained more confidence and started doing things instead of just having them in my head or on paper. It helped me to put things into practice better.
I enjoyed mentoring program from Femme Palette. Matching with my mentor was perfect, and the whole organization was on point, including the preparation or collecting feedback throughout the program. The best way is that mentoring will help instantly to implement some things, or it will make you think differently; in some ways, it's mind-opening. Always beneficial to share ideas with more experienced people. Thank you. :)
Thank you to Femme Palette for connecting me to my awesome mentor, Ondrej! He invested time and energy into my growth and was a great advisor. I learned a lot from him and know the next mentee will as well!
With strong support, my mentor guided me through my first year as a manager and helped boost my confidence that my thinking about my role and my team was leading me in the right direction.
Having a mentor was like having a career therapist. Over the six months of mentorship I built a solid foundation of skills and confidence that I will use to achieve my goals.
My mentor Lusine is skilled professional who posses all the required qualities, ask good questions, listen, knowledge transfer. I am very satisfied on my journey and confident that I am well prepared to take next step in my career.
Taking part of the mentorship program at Femme Palette helped me in so many ways. Before I didn’t have a clear vision of how I want to achieve my goals and I felt almost paralysed with fear of the future. Everything changed when I met my mentor Veronika. I presented her with my smart goal and ever since she tried her best to provide me with materials to study, explained complex concepts of programming and reviewed the code I wrote. She is such an amazing person and I couldn’t get a better mentor. <3
Putting someone from a different point in career into my shoes is an amazing idea. I have been in the industry for 8 years, so it is not easy to get some new points of view. But with the right mentor, who Honza totally was for me, it all came together very naturally and easy.
I am very happy that I got matched with Samuel! Time passes so quickly when we have our session. He has been a great mentor and he keeps me on track with all marketing trends, and just in general he is a great person. Thank you!
Leadership Program is a great opportunity to meet inspirational women and share together our experience, pain points and lessons learned. In our disscusion we create open communication and we can help each other. The topics which we discuss in our session can be implemented both in our professional life and our private life which is a great opportunity how to combine work and family.
I am really deeply grateful for Iva Buschmann's kindness and all rounded personality. Her ability to ask the right questions, listen objectively, understand and provide clarity was very impressive. I would recommend Iva in a heartbeat, both as a mentor and coach, for anyone wishing to move forward in their career and also have the courage to start a business. "The ability to ask the right questions is more than half the battle of finding the answer". Thank you Iva for enlightening my journey and Femme Palette for making it possible!
The whole Mentoring journey was a ride! I really appreciate the time and effort Veronika has invested to be the best mentor I could imagine. Veronika is very energetic, open and always focusing on best possible outcome of our meetings. Thank you, Veronika!
Mentoringový program pro mě byl nezapomenutelnou zkušeností. Hodně jsem se naučila, pomohl mi zvědomit si jak moje silné stránky, tak rezervy, se kterými jsem se naučila lépe pracovat. Určitě program doporučuji každému, kdo má chuť na sobě pracovat a dále se osobnostně či kariérně rozvíjet. Velké díky patří samozřejmě mé mentorce Nikole, která mě vždy dokázala inspirovat a vedla mě na cestě k cíli s lehkostí jí vlastní.
I have realized that mentoring can replace a lot of hours spent finding a solutions in various lectures or books. Because you directly solve your own problems with an expert and you implement the solution straight away :) Thank you for a great match with my mentor!
Working with Daniela as a coach was such an enlightening experience. Her attitude is just amazing, her listening skills and ability to navigate to a right question and direction opened up so much from me, that I got clarity in the very first session. She is possessing the right energy that is very inspirational. Choosing this program is the right thing for everybody who wants to work on and improve their career!
Choosing to go through this program was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I gained knowledge, confidence, contacts, friendship, and so much more.
I had the best possible experience with the Femme Palette program. For a great price even for mothers on maternity leave, I could afford 12 sessions with an amazing mentor, who enriched me both professionally and personally.
It is super awesome to see how much positive actions could be generated if you have such a great mentor like Maria. We are in the middle of our program and I feel I have made a big progress already. Our sessions always boost my motivation and this is because I have the chance to work with somebody who is a true inspiration not only on professional but also on personal level.
It was an amazing journey full of new experience, ideas and perspectives. I was matched with a great mentor to achieve my goals.
If you know what do you want to achieve, to have mentor is like go there by super fast car with the best navigation ever. Without mentor it can be like using wheelchaire and lichen navigation.
Mine opened my eyes. She is quite a kind, patient, empathic, and inspirational coach. By simple tasks we troubleshooted the root cause of my gaps, and I can clearly tell I am a different person now. We connected on a personal as well as professional level. These 12hrs helped me to find the path I want to walk on, and live up my values and life purpose.
