Why mentoring
and why me?

Many of the world’s most successful people had mentors along the way….


  • Ash Barty

    Ash Barty credits her mentor Ben Crowe with helping her change her mindset to become the world’s no. 1 tennis player. “Ben has become a massive part of my team, helping me with my mental application and changing my perspective of things in both life and in sport."

  • Michael Jordan

    Talking about Dean Smith, Michael said, “Other than my parents, no one had a bigger influence on my life than Coach Smith. He was more than a coach — he was my mentor, my teacher, my second father. Coach was always there for me whenever I needed him and I loved him for it. In teaching me the game of basketball, he taught me about life."

  • Adele

    Adele was recently, famously reunited with her inspirational mentor, a teacher from when she was 12. On stage she said about her, “She really made us care and we knew that she cared about us." Before telling Miss McDonald, “You really did change my life.”
