Our Services

Mentoring is about establishing a relationship. Each relationship is unique and created by the two participants involved. Each mentor has his/her own style and approach.

Being a CEO can be isolating. For me it’s been invaluable to have my Kilfinan Australia mentor with her extensive board experience, excellent business perspective and wise counsel.

Jane Hill, CEO Ovarian Cancer Australia

My contribution as a Kilfinan Australia mentor? I’d say to offer a broader perspective from a range of other industries and different spheres, as well as a confidential sounding board.

Anne Ward, Kilfinan Australia Mentor

I’ve learned so much from my mentor’s strong business acumen, legal experience and wisdom, and have appreciated confidentially sharing the challenges around working with the Board.

Chris Raine, CEO & Chairman Hello Sunday Morning

The best thing about being a Kilfinan mentor is getting to work with people who are exceptionally driven and passionate about what they do and the results they get.

Daniel Kleijn, Kilfinan Australia Mentor

As a first time CEO, my mentor has provided excellent guidance through her vast knowledge and experience. Her input has always been practical, tangible, precise and very encouraging.

Andrea Goddard, Executive Director Stars Foundation

As a mentor of two not-for-profit CEOs, I’ve gained a better understanding of the disability and the arts sectors and the enormous challenges they each face. It’s been a real learning experience.

David Williamson, Kilfinan Australia Mentor
