"Vickie took time out to talk to me. I did some production work experience she helped me get. After CMN, I got a job at Warner Music."

Janelle | Mentee | Hammersmith

Momina | CMN Collective

"At school you get taught a career is a doctor, lawyer, accountant. You don't get told what you can do on the creative side. People see that as a hobby."

Vickie Ridley | CMN Ambassador | Account Director at Lucky Generals

"Through CMN mentoring, I know I’m working at a company that is actively helping others as well as investing in their own employees’ development."

A culture of learning helps talented people have healthy and progressive careers, at whatever stage, and makes them less likely to move elsewhere.

Na'Imah | Mentee | Hackney

"My mentor was an Account Director at Iris. I loved learning about the strategy behind advertising campaigns."

Michael | Mentee | Newham

Gareth | Mentor | Creative Director

"I'm a Creative Director at Iris. When I was growing up none of my family went to university. I would have loved to have had a mentor."
