I undertook the Coach Mentoring Skills for Business with ILM accreditation delivered by Alessandra Alonso of Shine People and Places and found it extremely helpful. We are launching a mentoring programme and the content of the course was all very relevant and delivered at the right pace. It also gave me a lot to think about and now I feel much more confident about launching an initiative for my organisation.

(Shine delivered) a very informative session (How to design and run a successful mentoring programme) with lots of food for thoughts. The session was well paced and the possibility of application could be seen over a diverse range of business cases.

Shine have provided us with a formula to approach a new project, professionally and skilfully. Their expertise and approachable manner have been invaluable and enabled us to make clear decisions when working on improving our business and aiding staff retention. Their passion is infectious and motivating. I have found it a real honour to work closely with Alessandra and Gaby and can't thank them enough.

Just a line or two to thank you sincerely for making time to lead the workshop yesterday afternoon. I really enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the exercise/discussion, and know the students got a lot out of it too. It will really have caused them to think throught the kinds of issues you brought to their attention.

“The (how to run a successful mentoring programme) workshop provides a very good framework to plan the implementation of a mentoring system. The focus on what the mentoring system is trying to achieve and then the step by step approach on how to achieve it is very helpful.”
