JAYDI C-SUITES Mentoring Program is to facilitate mentoring relationships so that experienced mentors can share advice, knowledge and experiences with mentees, resulting in a mutually beneficial professional development relationship. The program enables links to be established between experienced Entrepreneurs, professionals from within the Jaydi members who are seeking opportunities for career and professional development. This program is not designed to assist mentees with employment opportunities; it is a program to aid the mentee in their professional development. In the event a mentee is employed at their mentor’s organisation, the pair will be reassigned.
