Cherie Blair foundation
Main aim of the charity
The main aim is to be connected with a mentee that needs some support and direction with strengthening their businesses and build their skills, confidence and knowledge. It is dedicating my time outside of work to review where my Mentee is at and offering advice and support to guide her utilizing my master's degree. We both completed a detailed application with the foundation and were matched to work together. The arrangement is to commit a year of my time to support my mentee which I am absolutely loving. I am able to utilize all of the DHL training such as CIM, coaching for success, CIM SUP facilitating and everything else I haven't learnt through my career. Caroline and I have developed a great relationship and she appreciates my support and I value what she is able to teach me about her culture as well.
The aim is also for the foundation to be connected with experienced businesswomen who can facilitate discussions and run relevant training for all the mentees in the program, i will have my chance to share soon.
