June 1, 2018

At the end of each cohort, we host a graduation evening for CMN mentors and their mentees. Students speak about what they have learnt during their mentoring journey and present this to their fellow mentees, mentors, parents, teachers and anyone that supports the CMN mission.

This month, we held two graduation events. On Monday 21st May students being mentored by professionals at ustwo, M&C Saatchi, Pulse Films, Analogfolk and more presented at Ogilvy Sea Containers.

On Tuesday 22nd May students mentored by professional from Havas graduated in The Forum event space at their Kings Cross HQ. We were joined by mentors from Cake, Havas London, Conran Design + more.

At each event, students showcased their presentations with confidence, intelligence and with a lot of humour.

Our 16 week certificated Mentor Development Programme is delivered in partnership with Koreo and mentors also received certificates for their commitment, hard work and skill development within our course.

We are tremendously proud of all students who took part and even more grateful to all mentors and organisations for completing our programme and championing our mission.
