  • "Succession planning is the ultimate form of teaching and mentoring, and something that as professionals we need to consider more. Too often we wait until the last minute, when there is so little time to do it properly."
  • "The videos on mentoring are a treasure! I had no idea they existed. I've been clicking on several of them, and they are all great. Thanks for including them."
  • "Looking forward to the webinar this month to pull this all together."
