What do past mentees say?
“The WFTV mentoring scheme has been one of the very best things that I have done for my career. “It forced me to take my head out of the sand and do the work on areas that I had neglected – networking, contact building and focusing on long term goals. It also allowed me to meet, bond and be a part of a new network of brilliant women – my fellow mentees.” – Christiana Ebohon-Green – Director/2015 Mentee
“I applied for this scheme not expecting to be chosen because I am not production crew. I was, therefore, thrilled to be chosen and was truly impressed with its structure and purpose. The creation of this supportive female network is inspired and definitely the best thing about the scheme. I would definitely recommend this scheme 100%.” – Anita Gupta – Set Decorator/2015 Mentee.
