The value of Twenty/Twenty

In a quick-fire Q&A, Point 6 Design’s MD Sally Forsyth Spark discusses the value of being both a mentee and mentor on the DBA’s flagship mentoring programme, Twenty/Twenty. 

Why did you decide to get involved in the Twenty/Twenty mentoring programme? 

I’d had some great (and unofficial) mentors throughout my career and wanted to give something back as a mentor myself.

How would you sum up the experience?

Extremely positive, both as a mentee and a mentor. A safe space to explore issues that might seem trivial (or conversely, overwhelming) almost guarantees solutions.

How valuable has it been?  

The training I received as a mentor has been directly helpful in improving my personal and leadership skills.

What, if anything, has surprised you about the programme? 

How almost every session reveals something that is incredibly helpful, insightful or that was hidden in plain sight!
