What will your mentor help you with?

Your mentor will help you “see around corners” in your career so you know what it takes to progress. Your mentor will be your guide and sounding board for ideas, helping you reflect on your goals and decide on the best course of action.

Your mentor will help you identify the expertise you need to succeed, including building confidence, improving your presentation and communication skills. You will also get advice on additional resources you can leverage, including books, articles, and events.

Working regularly with a mentor ensures that you maintain focus on your career growth and have consistent conversations about how you can improve. Long-term career growth is often about improving a little bit every day, rather than in short bursts.

Your mentor can offer an opportunity to expand your existing network of professional contacts by introducing you to relevant connections. On average, our mentees receive 3.5 connections from their mentors.

Michaela O. Menouskova
Owner, CEO and Lead designer at A-styl atelier, s.r.o.
Doing business and not having friends or family that are on the same ship is hard. They don't understand your passion and your drive. And then you come along FP and their amazing mentors, like mine, Lenka - you have got your support group, your mentor and you know instantly, you'll do just fine.
Victoria Borisch
Freelance Communications & Marketing
Mentoring is something I had been looking into but hadn't fully committed to yet. When the COVID-19 lockdown began and my workload decreased, I decided to make the most of the extra time I had on my hands and invest in myself. Setting specific goals was hard because I had so many ideas and wasn't sure how to put them together in a way that made sense. Femme Palette found me the perfect Mentor in Vilma. She has been so incredibly supportive and has helped me turn my ideas into a plan.
Jill Cefalo

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.
Kim Hoang
Business Requirements & Operations Manager at OptioPay Group
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.
