They are also an effective way to improve inter-departmental communication, increase productivity and manage today’s environment of constant change.

Our plans are suitable for organizations that want a mentoring
program with high quality participant resources, online mentoring software and best practice in design. Plans range from providing basic support and structure to a fully managed program with sponsorship support.



Some organizations have large or complex groups or unique organizational goals that do not mesh well with our standardized plans. In these instances we can tailor a bespoke mentoring program that is specifically customised to your needs.

We were introduced to the team at Art of Mentoring and decided they had the right expertise, approach and quality of mentoring materials to support this highly customised program. They delivered everything and supported our internal co-ordinator throughout the program. We were very pleased with the outcome – I highly recommend them.

We reached out to Art of Mentoring for resources to launch a unique program – we have asked Paralympian athletes to mentor seriously injured young people. The Art of Mentoring consultants assisted us with the pilot of our program and soon we will roll it out and scale it up, with their help. The team was great to work with – they understood our needs and were able to deliver, super-fast.
