Thank you for a great session today - all the mentors were brilliant and gave me some really good insight and guidance..
Plan B is such a great idea! I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions..
It has certainly given me a chance to reflect and think about how I grow and release my potential! Each of the mentors gave me valuable feedback and food for thought in the short time I spent with them.
I never fail to be blown away by Plan B events - virtual or otherwise. I think it’s the immense generosity of time, insights and advice that the Mentors give, Also, exposure to such high achievers and thoroughly nice people. I got so much out of this even
The Plan B Programme and mentors have given me the confidence to focus on the progression of my career. Such a wealth of experience, success and talent across the entire hospitality sector willing to support and encourage me to step out of my comfort zone and maximise my potential. Not only has this benefited me but also my company. Since joining Plan B I have gained 2 promotions within the same employer. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the mentors, I still can't quite believe Plan B exists. I have to pinch myself that I've 'found' hospitality - the warmth, support and incredible generosity I've witnessed in only a few months - blows me away.
