I would call our mentoring quite adaptive - depending on the current needs of the mentee where we started by developing a product, continuing with time management, project management, and marketing skills development, and ended up with a potential business plan to be developed further. Crossing my fingers for my mentee to shine for her idea and translate it into her side-business in the future.
Natasa Ivkovic Lovric
Consultant & Mental Health Professional
Mentoring gives me an opportunity not only to see how my mentees thrive and change their life but also impacts my experience and provides me with new insights. It's always a two way process where we both learn from each other.
Rafna Bash
CEO/Technology Consultant
As a mentor, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with this platform, which significantly enhanced my mentoring skills over the past six months. The detailed mentor guidelines provided were instrumental in helping me become more insightful and effective. Through this journey, I gained valuable insights into diverse work cultures, assisting my mentee in overcoming challenges and advancing in her career. This platform has been pivotal in fulfilling my mission to help women navigate the complexities of work-life balance, workplace bias, and other career growth challenges.
Tereza Viskova

Thoughout my mentoring journey with Femme Palette I worked with mentees in the Czech Republic and in the United States in mid and senior management roles from variety of industry verticals. It was very rewarding being able to share my experience and support someone else in their career journey. Also, I learned a lot myself from my mentees. I realized that regardless of industries we work in, my mentees and I share many similar challenges in the workplace. Mentoring is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone who has been pondering that idea.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my mentoring experience & really happy with Femme Palette's work in how they paired me up with a mentee & the tools they made available to support. I feel much more confident in my mentoring & coaching skills having seen my mentee truly benefit from my guidance.
Lenka Černá

Changing someone's life by mentoring them is literally the best reward for a mentor. After my mentoring, a mother of three from Brno left with the feeling that she was "enough" to start her new career. She worked hard on herself and took in every word I could give her. Thank you Femme Palette for connecting me and I applaud my mentee from afar.

Jana Drlíková
Evaluator, analysts, coach
Ministry for Regional Development
I really enjoyed my mentoring experience. It was very rewarding to share my own experience with younger, very talented woman. I also used a lot of from my coaching training, which I find more valuable for the mentee – when she can find her own ways out from challenging situation that we were discussing. I feel that it is very important to support young women in their careers – in finding their own voice, path, and authenticity. As many experts and studies shows, these are typical challenges for most women across the globe.
Alex Michalicova
Senior Product Manager

Being a product manager is such a complex role that one can easily get lost in day-to-day PM activities. I consider myself very lucky to have had a mentor during my early days as a PM, and I would highly recommend seeking mentorship when embarking on this career journey. From a mentor's perspective, witnessing the growth of my mentees reaffirmed the impact of mentorship in fostering future leaders.
Jakub Ruzicka

You're always chatting with someone who's already halfway there and seeks help to sort out their thoughts and gain the confidence to make a move 🚀

Being part of the story, invited to join forces on your newfound friend's success, makes you feel happy 😊

...and you'll also learn a thing or two and upskill together with your mentee of course 🤓

Embarking on a mentoring journey with my mentee has been a truly enriching experience, not only contributing to their professional growth but also serving as a powerful tool to keep my imposter syndrome in check. It has been a privilege to witness their progress and envision the success that lies ahead. Our discussions not only guided my mentee through various professional challenges but also provided me with valuable insights, allowing me to revisit and navigate past work situations. The exploration of diverse possibilities to handle these scenarios has been both enlightening and empowering, making this mentoring journey an invaluable exchange of wisdom and growth.

It has been wonderful to build a strong relationship with my mentee. This has enabled trust and openness within our relationship.
Daniela Felletti

Talents Connection
I was delighted to accompany my mentee on this journey. Her openness to vulnerability was vital to helping her evolve. Her initial goals evolved extraordinarily: from fears of her next career steps and responsibilities towards mastering the difficult conversations, challenging her mindset concerning leadership, networking and DEI. I can only wish her to continue growing while using all the tools we have explored together. I believe this program is of high value for all individuals seeking career growth and, in my case, as a mentor seeking to apply DEI in their every single action and decision.
Marek Pohlodek
Senior Product Manager
My mentoring experience has been both incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. Reflecting on my early years as a Product Manager, I was really surprised how many of the challenges my mentee faced mirrored my own past experiences. This insight allowed me to provide guidance that could, if chosen, lead to significant growth and learning. The profound impact mentoring can have on both the mentor and mentee is truly remarkable, and I can't wait for the next experience.

Veenam Leung
Senior Advisor, People & Culture (Mergers and Acquisitions)
Being a part of the Femme Palette mentoring program has been an eye-opening experience for me. It has shown me that you don't have to be a senior executive to make a meaningful impact as a mentor. Sharing my learnings, experiences, successes, and failures in a safe and trusting environment can serve as valuable guidance for someone else. It is truly rewarding to see the professional and personal growth of my mentee, knowing that I played a part in their journey.

Maria Douneva

It was amazing to see how much happened during just a few months! My mentee's circumstances unexpectedly changed a lot, and I'm glad I could be by her side to support her through the transition. And even though we always met virtually, I feel that we established a great and trustful bond.
Giulia Lorenzini
Head of Account Management
Making in impact in someone else's life is a very powerful and self-fulfilling feeling. I knew that already but now I have the confirmation. During this 6-month journey with my mentee I could see how the 2 of us grew together. I could witness a growth in my mentee in terms of her self-awareness, self-confidence, assertiveness and clarity of vision for her future, and there is nothing more fulfilling than that!
Veronika Kořenková

Souhila Chetouane
International Operations Manager
Being a mentor has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my career, I hope to be a powerful source of influence and light for those I mentor. As basic as this may sound, a good mentoring experience starts with a good matching process and a mentee who has a goal. I enjoyed working with my most recent mentee, she had the ability to make me self-reflect by asking very probing questions. I recommend that anyone looking to grow in life or work seek a mentor.
Michaela Prusa Nesporova
HR Director / Multi-industry & multi-country experience
I am happy that I joined Femme Palette mentoring program. I had very positive experience with my mentee and we exchanged many topics. It was an interesting journey not only for my mentee but for me as well. The program is well structured and I appreciated exchanging sessions with other mentors as well.
Inna Khlon
Sales manager
We were able to achieve a lot, because the mentee was driven and responsible, always prepared with topics and questions and always actioning upon our agreements. I am happy I was able to help. It is so important to give back.
Yana Stanishevskaya
Marketing expert
I'm grateful for being part of the program and being able to give back the experience, knowledge, my highs and my lows to those who seek a guiding light. Seeing my mentee grow and develop, becoming more confident and (over)achieving goals is the most rewarding feeling in the world. At least for me. It also makes me become better, by acquiring new knowledge through trainings and building new skills.
Lenka Hrabovská
CEO & Founder
Unlimited Story
Femme Palette is definitely one of the best mentoring platforms I had the opportunity to cooperate with. We had a clear structure and I felt supported during the whole mentoring process. I also appreciated the match with the mentee, which is crucial. And the best about being a mentor is not, that you are giving. You are getting from your mentee much more in return.
Jennifer Mcwilliams
Manager, Business Planning and Strategy
Rogers Communications
Sometimes, the opportunities in your LinkedIn Message box are worth pursuing; a case in point is the opportunity to mentor through Femme Palette.

I just finished my first rotation, and knowing you can assist fellow women on their corporate journey is personally rewarding; sharing your collective experiences and posing questions to find and then navigating alternative paths.

We are obligated as women to help the next generation navigate the sometimes choppy waters of life to find their calm bay.
Marlen Lutter
Digital Delivery Lead, Programme Manager and Agile advocate
I really enjoyed being a mentor in a non-work setting as it removes the politics and pressures of pure work performance from the relationship and shifts the focus to a true exchange of experiences, learnings and points of views which is far more rewarding and I can truly say that it left me with so many new insights about myself, what I know and have to offer and where I still have room to grow and learn myself.
Renata Horáková

I am happy that I had the opportunity to help my mentee to grow not only in the areas specified in the goals of the mentoring program but to see her growing as a person and reach higher self-confidence and self-awareness. Thank you for the experience and for the choice of such a great mentee.
Alina Ruiz Guerra
Trans Operations Manager / Career Coach
Amazon / Self-employed
Mentoring could be scary when you are the one expected to guide and mentor. It is scary throughout the entire journey as ultimately you are there to guide and support, but the mentee is to be inspired and complete the goals. 6 months might seem short at first, but we managed to achieve amazing results over this period. It doesn't happen without dedication and commitment on both sides. My greatest satisfaction was to hear my mentee say that feels more confident than ever and has all the necessary tools to continue building up on what we have achieved together in the mentoring program.
Petra Mikulasova
HR Senior Manager
Yanfeng International
Mentoring has been a great journey for me as a mentor as I could see it had a direct impact and even tangible results for my mentee. It also provided me opportunity for self-inventory of my skills and experience and help me be confident in my own abilities.

I could focus on the mentoring experience, which helped both, my mentee and I grow in our professional lifes.
Inessa Karapetyan

My experience with FemmePalette as a mentor was great! FemmePalette is a very well-structured organization, from Notion pages with comprehensive support documentation to regular check-ins and the availability of the mentor support team. I also had the chance to participate in a couple of panel discussions that were very insightful and inspiring. As a result, FemmePalette taught me a lot in just 6 months of the program. Thank you!
Bohunka Hihlánová

Reflecting on my recent mentoring journey with gratitude. Being a mentor has brought unexpected fulfilment to my professional path. I became a mentor to share knowledge, give back, and nurture growth in others. Watching my mentee conquer challenges, achieve goals, and learn new skills has been a source of pure joy. And it was a learning experience for me as well - I've deepened my knowledge and gained some fresh insights. I can only recommend to explore mentoring opportunities with FemmePalette - to inspire each other and grow.
Bianca DiPietro

I am really enjoying being a mentor for Femme Palette. Not only to I get to influence and help someone in the industry with my experience, but I get to meet new people and improve my own leadership/ coaching skills. I love the idea of broadening my network and making new connections around the world!
Evelyn Fodeke
BASF Corporation
I really do appreciate the opportunity to give back that the Femme Palette Program gave me. The irony was that the more I gave back, the more I too got from the process, chief of which was getting to know a beautiful, enthusiastic and passionate soul, my mentee. I'll do it all over again.
Marco Zanzotera
Director Logistics - Italy
I feel humbled in being able to help my mentee through this program, as through it I met a young professional, with strong sense of purpose, big ambitions - and untapped leadership potential. The world needs more female leaders, and the thought of missing out on even just one, because she's confused or unsure about her worth, should scare everyone out there! I wish her the best in achieving what she set out to do, and encourage her to pass this onto other women and professionals facing challenges of their own.
Monika Prochazkova
Director of Client Development
Inclusive Surrogacy
I had the privilege of mentoring a passionate entrepreneur over the past few months. It has been a truly rewarding experience to guide and support my mentee on her journey to grow her business. I enjoyed our conversations. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to share my experience and to witness first hand the growth and transformation of my mentee's business. My mentee and I definitely learned something new along the way. I would encourage anyone who is considering mentorship to get involved. It's a journey that is sure to be not only professionally enriching but personally fulfilling as well.

My mentorship journey with the Femme Palette organisation was truly fantastic. Over the past six months, I had the pleasure of working with my mentee, and I must say it was an incredibly rewarding experience. I thoroughly enjoyed our discussions on leadership, communication, and team dynamics. What made it even more special was the level of openness, connection, and authenticity we were able to foster throughout our journey.
Olga Maximova

Mentoring is mutually enriching and the fact that someone decided to spend 12 hours of their life with me is actually a huge honor on my side.
Sabine Koch

It is so valuable to meet someone from another industry from another country and to exchange experiences across borders and cultures. The both of us learned a lot about communication, leadership and about our self and definitely became rolemodels for each other.

The Femme Palette mentoring program is unique in the way they meticulously match mentors and mentees. The initial chemistry session is a brilliant idea! My mentoring experience in this program has been positive and insightful, especially in connecting with mentees outside my industry. It demonstrated how core skills and insights are transferable and leadership development has common pillars across the board. The program is structured and provides regular opportunities to provide feedback.

I’m so glad I found Femme Palette and joined the mentor team. Throughout my career, I’ve had many mentors and I felt it was time for me to share my experiences through mentorship. I had no idea how much I would learn from my mentee! I really appreciate all the support FP provides. From the first chemistry call and throughout the program, the FP team supported us and provided guidance and resources. This has been such a rewarding experience - I’m excited for my next match!

Zuzana Jandorová
This program is mutually beneficial and I am glad to have the opportunity to be a part of it.
I have been mentoring in companies where I have worked as HR for many years, and the older I get, the more feel important these programs are. It's important to pass on stubbornness, to give incentives to work on yourself on knowledge and, above all, on emotions lately. And there is always something new for me as well, which I accept with respect and humility for these meetings
Petra Antošová
Coach / facilitator / trainer / consultant / evaluator
It's really a pleasure to be part of Femme Palette community. I really enjoy working with self-driven, hard working mentees with learning mindset and this has been my experience with all the mentees I've been working with so far. It's a mutual process of learning, experimenting and growing. I feel honoured to use my own experience to provide support and guidance to my mentees and I definitely gain a lot from every one of them, too. Thank you, Femme Palette for your professional approach and always being there: at our back :-)
Olga Ismagilova
Career Coach/Consultant
I'm really glad that I could help my mentee on her career journey by sharing my career development program, improving her Linkedin profile, resume and interview skills. Being on different continents and timezone did not affect our cooperation. I think the rapport was built from the first session. The most precious is trust in touching person's life in a good compassionate way, contributing to both sides. FP designed interaction very well, supported with materials and run everything smooth, which is highly appreciated.
Michał Weiser

Black Point (Owner), HealthyLongevity.guide (Co-Founder & CTO)

Tetiana Sokolova
Product Owner

Thank you, Femme Palette for a great opportunity to be a mentor in your organization. It is very important to support and guide mentees in their professional and personal development journey. Life experience, failures, lessons learn, tools are important in our sessions, but my main goal is to motivate and inspire mentee for actions and reflect after it. I'm very happy for results of my mentee and I truly believe that we can achieve wherever we want if we have desire and support of people that believe in you.

Elena Mellara
International Career Coach
Melly Consulting

When the mentorship program ends it's a bittersweet moment. On one side you see your mentee spreading the wings and fly away and - as a mentor - you are so proud of what the mentee accomplished. On the other side you know that the somewhat tight relationship you had until now will become something different. Happy to witness and be part of this rewarding journey

Hana Koprivova
Principal IT Recruiter, Company owner
Nettles Consulting

Being a mentor is great experience and I recommend Femme Palette to everyone, who is considering sharing their knowledge. No matter what your professional career is - there are plenty of people out there, who would be happy for your guidance, advice, support, or just sharing your experience with them. I had an inspiring time with my mentee and the most rewarding thing for me was to watch her progress for 6 months and hear, that she feels a lot more confident at the end of our journey. Absolutely worth it! :)

Lenka Vornhagen
Coach & Mentor

Since the very first moment with Femme Palette I have been very grateful that I can follow somebody's goals through handing over my professional experience mixed with coaching approach. Every session I take as a discovery journey where we can work on the future by developing not only professional and personal skills, but also to go deeper into mentees self-knowledge, which has a very powerfull impact.

Iva Krecanova
Head of Project Management

I appreciate the opportunity to guide other women through the transition period of their careers. And as a mother of two little girls, I hope that one day they too will have the opportunity to use the knowledge and experience of other women in whatever profession they choose.

Andrea Brandt

I am really happy to support my mentee in her personal growth path, to guide her how to connect to her inner resources and help her to overcome emotional blockages which are part of the road once you develop to your next level. I could see the positive impact of our sessions in her day to day life and for this experience I am more than grateful.

I´m really glad I could help through my experience and konwledge my mentee on his discovery end personal growth journey. It was a mutual learning from each other.

Andrzej Parys
Business Development Manager Central East Europe

Before starting mentoring program I knew I have some managment and leadership experience to share. This program, however, helped me to refresh all the techniques that I have learnt throughout the years. It also meant a lot to realise that my knowledge can help to become a better manager to someone else.

Veronika Horakova
Commercial Excellence Director CZ & SK
Asahi (Plzeňský Prazdroj)

It is a pleasure to offer my experience and independent view to my mentee and see how he reacts to that and implements solutions that we create together to his work immediately. Sometimes it is about bigger changes, but often the change lies in detail, which is great learning for both of us. It is also interesting to see how different cultures are among companies and transfer tips from one type to another with surprising results. It is definitely enriching experience for both of us!

Michaela Hermans
Head of Digital Transformation & Innovation
Wizz Air

I found the experience to be immensely valuable and enriching. Sharing my experience, learnings, but also failings (learnt usually the hard way..) with mentee allowed me to reflect on my own journey and grow as a leader. The mutual benefit of mentoring is evident, as it not only helps mentees grow and develop their skillset, but also allows mentors to refine their leadership skills and gain fresh perspectives.

Zuzana Magalova
Director of Marketing Studio
Creative Dock

I am really happy that I had this great opportunity and became a mentor for my mentee. It's not only a great pleasure, but also a huge responsibility to mentor, provide guidance and so influence  someone's life. Moreover, it is a great development for myself as well,  so being a mentor for Femme-Palette is a win-win for both parts and I highly recommend it!

Anna Sudbury
Head of Sales
Flume Sales Training

I started mentoring to 'give back', but with my first experience with Femme Palette I can say I've learned as much as I've given.  My mentee and I worked together to untangle her work life from her personal life, putting boundaries in place and ensuring that she could apply herself fully.  We also focused on setting aside time to just be, allowing her creativity to flourish, and giving her a break from the 'struggle juggle' that is life with small kids.  I'm immensely proud of how far she's come, and can't wait to watch her fly... and of course to pay it back by becoming a mentor herself.

Katerina Lesch
Senior Manager - AI & Data
Deloitte Czech Republic

It has been a great experience to see the mentee identifying her goals and needs and also emotions around them. I feel grateful to be given a chance to help her find the best possible way to live a meaningful, balanced life both on a personal and work level.

Jozef Cipa
Backend developer

I really like that I can help other people get into programming. I know how hard it can be sometimes and how I always appreciated the help when I was learning. Now, I can finally give it back and pass my experience and advice to others.

Monique Elwell

I've been in the business world for over 30 years and I felt I've acquired enough knowledge to give back. I wasn't sure how to go about being a mentor and finding a mentee, but I'm thrilled that I have been introduced to Femme Palette. Their process, and communication have been outstanding. And I'm learning how to improve as a mentor.

Martina Jurcickova

I am glad I could encourage and enable my mentee's professional and personal development. Throughout our joint program, there was a noticeable impact in clarity and improved focus on his efforts. We discussed professional challenges in his new leadership role and expert topics in communication and marketing. Our sessions were inspiring and lively. It is incredibly fulfilling to be able to use my own success stories, but also failures and learnings with someone who can benefit from it.

I'm always happy to share my experiences and faults with mentees. I help my mentees understand their own and unique journey, show them different perspectives and the complexity of personal or working issues. Every of my mentoring or coaching relationships is based on mutual trust and respect. What's more, I can also learn a lot from my mentees and enrich my life.

Dalila Harouadi
Project/Delivery Manager, Application Analyst
PM Chamber

When you give some knowledge, you don't lose it. You consolidate it and give a cloned image of it.Mentoring is about giving/sharing knowledge and experience, caring with kindness and good will, giving an additional purpose to your professional and personal life, meeting people outside of your and their comfort zone but still in a safe environment, reaping a sweet satisfaction of having helped and also of having received a lot.Mentoring is not something new to the world. However it should be promoted as a powerful relationship within personal continuous improvement.I am glad to be, somehow, a part of it.

Anna Aslanova
Leadership Coach, L&D Expert

I am very grateful for the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with my Mentee. Mentoring process is a great tool for self-reflection and realizing my own learnings. Looking at my professional and personal experience from a different perspective, my Mentee's perspective. I enjoy every session with my Mentee seeing her going above and beyond her abilities and expanding her horizon.

Pavel Hamrik
Product design manager

I will cherish the experience of working with my mentee. Their openness and trust were what made it work, and we were able to get to a good depth in our sessions. And so we also made meaningful progress over the 12 sessions, in the words of my mentee.My own learning, hearing about my mentee's experience and challenges, was as much satisfying as their description of what our relationship did for them overall.I believe Femme Palette found a good match between the two of us, and appreciate the structure and expert guidance they provided.

I'm happy to see people around me get the life they want. Mentoring is a great way to be a part of the progress while meeting new people, having fun sharing experiences, and creating positive change in your community without the pressure of having all the answers. And sometimes it's a friendly reminder of the long journey one went through- it's easy to forget the struggles once it's over :)

Mentoring for me is still an amazing journey that started few years ago. Meeting Tereza was a perfect match from the very beginning. We were able to communicate openly and built trust and rapport very quickly. It’s awesome to hear the feedback from Tereza that it’s actually working, all the professional hints, tips that I shared with her during our sessions. This is life’s changing moment, I believe not only for the mentee, but also for the mentor.

I've been mentoring at Femme Palette for about 3 years now. In general, it is a great positive stress free experience  of meeting young professionals,  business owners. I helped them achieve their career and business goals, and I'm glad that they received the expected inspiration and knowledge from me. I love how Femme Palette organizes the process and helps mentors get to know each other and help each other, allowing them get the most out of their mentoring experience.

It has been a pleasure to serve as a mentor to Lucie. There is hardly a better feeling than seeing another person grow and reach their full potential thanks to posing the right question at the very right moment. That's what I love most about my role as a coach and mentor. I find the process inspiring and as such, a mutually rewarding experience for both sides."

Femme Palette is a wonderful way to connect with other women on their journey and helps others achieve their goals. As women in a predominantly male field I think it's great to help others grow in confidence and skills. I really love the collaboration that this community encourages.

I found this program very well organised and the selection of mentee is very professional. I also like the model of matching mentor and mentee. I appreciate specially the readiness of mentee and their commitment, its very important for successful results. The program is giving me the opportunity to discover new areas, new businesses, industries for me and bringing me new ideas and inspiration through mentoring. I saw a very nice development of my mentees and I am very proud that I should share my experience and knowledge.

Being mentored is great as I am and have been mentored myself. And being able to mentor someone else who is in the stage of life I was few years back, share valuable lessons from private life as well as the business one, and give them the opportunity to grow and move towards their best possible self is amazing experience. It pushes and motivates me to educate and better myself every day so I can give the mentee only the best that is deserved.

Mentoring has always been a great way for me to give back and support professionals navigate the complexities that come with excelling at work and life. Working with a mentee via the Femme Palette mentorship program was a great experience for me. I was able to help my mentee come up with brilliant ideas & solutions to his work challenges, through insights and experiences from my own journey, which was fulfilling. I was also able to learn from the interactions, which was equally beneficial to me. I would totally recommend this program to work professionals seeking guidance on their journey.

My mentee thanked me in our last session and told me that she had gained back her confidence and felt ready and able to handle the challenges ahead of her in the next stage of her career. That felt great to hear, but the credit for her growth all goes to her. Together, we created a safe space where she could share her concerns and I could share my experience with many of those same issues. It's gratifying that my experiences can help give someone else a different perspective and reassurance that they are competent, capable, and already on the right path.

Senior Program Manager

Mentoring program is great experience for both sides, because the mentor is getting feedback immediatelly during discussion and it also helps to drive our conversation further. I am really happy that my mentee can benefit from my previous mistakes and avoid them in his further career, it is also satisfaction for these mistakes. Success is output of persistence and continuous learning, but if you can learn by examples (ideally from the same field), it is probably one of the best ways to long-term success.

I'm really happy with my mentor experience. Great pairing and seamless process. Really enjoyed working with my mentee and feel great satisfaction at the end of each session. Like I'm making a difference to helping someone's journey.

Martina Brixi

Great experience with my mentee. It’s great to influence someone’s life and help succeed in the role. Tough journey for both of us. I always learn something new. Wonderful and meaningful time. Thank you.

It is a pleasure to participate in the Femme Palette program. Mentoring an entrepreneur over a long period of time allows a project to evolve and creates a strong relationship. It is a program that helps both parties grow, challenge themselves and move forward. The objective is also to implement concrete actions and to evaluate the results. A great opportunity to grow your business.

Aicha Diarra
Global Support Lead

I'm so surprised to see what I can bring to my mentee. When she asks questions on how to achieve some of her goals, it brings back memories of things I've done well or not, and what options I could have considered then. It's great to see her thrive and push herself to see things differently, just because she gets a new perspective in addition to her own experience.

I currently have the honor of working with my third mentee. The opportunity to share my experience, recommendations and ideas is a pleasure for me. Also, it is a great responsibility to be a part of the mentee's professional and personal growth. Every meeting is inspiring for me.

Miroslava Stodolicova

I am really happy to be part of this program as a mentor and to help mentees to develop. I was a little bit doubtful if I will have enough experience to share with Jiri, because I don't have experience in start ups, and Jiri also wanted to concentrate on processes and systems, but it really turned out as a great fit and we can share a lot together.
