Comments from previous participants in the Mentor Program:

“The program was quite open and most importantly challenged you (as a mentee) to explore your options and think outside the box, it encouraged me to sit down and contemplate on what I was interested to learn about.

You are mentored by a senior engineer who has extensive experience within the land development industry, and I would strongly encourage anyone who has a passion for land development to consider this program; it is both beneficial and informative! “ Kerrolos Rofael 

“I gained a greater insight into other areas on the land development industry as well as advice and suggestions on how I should go about making decisions, setting goals, and progressing in my own career and life in general.

I found the program extremely rewarding and would highly recommend.” Rebecca Saber

More Testimonials: 

“There is a lot to consider whilst being in the land development industry and that there is no one right answer. The field is vast and there are a lot of moving parts that work hand in hand to complete a project.

The program is a great way to gain insight into the land development industry and what to expect from yourself and from others whilst working in the field. It is an open conversation where I felt comfortable talking about all things related to career progression/decisions.” Kent Diep 

“I appreciated most the opportunity to connect with recognised industry professionals on a deeper level outside of the standard office setting, to discuss things pertaining to career and skills development. The program also facilitated connection between other like-minded young professionals. Highly recommend. ” Dennis Graf
