What interested you in joining the program? The opportunity to network, be paired with someone who I could learn from professionally, ask questions, and bounce ideas off as part of my development and growth with C&W Services.
What have you learned from the program? I have learned so much from the program and my mentor, Bill Ayres, Vice President of Strategic Client Relationships for the West Region. Two of the greatest takeaways I received from Bill are “you will take out of the mentorship program what you put in” and “if you always do what you have always done, you will only ever get what you’ve always got.” Good words to live by.
What advice would you give to other potential mentees looking to strengthen their C&W Services careers? Participate! There are so many great individuals looking to share wisdom and experience., it brings people together at C&W Services to help the next generation and keep developing its people.
Share a moment or experience where your mentor gave you career advice. Bill Ayres has been a tremendous soundboard for a slew of projects that I have completed, am currently working on, and have upcoming. We discuss strategies on projects and how to position leadership for my customer.
