KE Volunteer of the Year Finalist from Imperial Innovations
Govind was my mentor during the PraxisAuril Mentoring Programme 1. The programme lasted for 10 weeks, with a 1 hour mentoring session taking place most weeks. Govind was committed to the programme and enthusiastic from the first session. He was extremely willing to share his skills and knowledge, providing external support and guidance to me at an early stage in my technology transfer career.
We covered a wide range of topics during the programme, ranging from STFC projects to career progression. During the sessions, Govind provided insight and guidance whilst also allowing me to come to my own conclusions. Our discussions have resulted in a clear action plan for several projects and has increased my confidence in my role.
I am extremely grateful to Govind for committing to the programme and giving up his time. There have been clear personal benefits for me and I believe, in the long-term, benefits for my team.
