Mentoring

In some cases, you as a quality and food safety professional, might have specific development needs. You might want to grow to the next level, our you might be placed in a new role where you feel unsecure. In these cases, it can be of tremendous value to have a mentor at your side.

Mentoring is intensive and it helps you grow both at a personal (managerial) level as well as a professional level. At the same time, mentoring is not a one-size-fits-all solution, it requires a personal approach and is aimed at your development needs. A typical mentoring program will last for a year, and during the year you will achieve a true personal and professional transformation with the aid of a seasoned coach.
