I love having Dorenda as my mentor. Feels like a life-long commitment rather than a set of boxes to be ticked. Just amazing to have someone who’s 100% on my side without other agendas.

I have been a Judge at the NZ Hi-Tech Awards for over 20 years and have ranged through many different categories. I have worked as a mentor for the First Foundation, provided mentorship to selected young leaders, as part of Our Land and Water National Science Challenge. Other mentoring engagements include KiwiNet – Return on Science, SODA Inc, and a number of professional mentoring engagements, covering land-based industries and engineering.
Dorenda is a great mentor. She is genuinely invested in wanting the best for me and treats me as an equal. She pushes me just the right amount to ensure I am challenging myself but never beyond my capabilities. Dorenda continually inspires me and I always walk away from our sessions feeling energised and passionate.
