MENTORS - Philippe Favre

“As a company manager, I know how important it is to have someone with whom you can speak freely, without constraints, on a range of subjects and sometimes to receive advice.”

Eve Magnant, Mentor

“Mentoring is not for beginners. You have to find the right method for each person and each company. The mentor sees what he can bring to the relationship depending on his own experience. Mentoring is really a customized activity.”

Jean-Jacques Bérard
