What makes you a good mentor?

Most of the best decisions I've taken in my career have come as a direct result of my mentors' advice. Mentors save you time by conveying the mistakes they've learned from so that you don't have to make the same ones. The goal of mentorship is to convey as much life experience so that mentees can hopefully reach their fulfilment faster and go further than their mentors could.

George Hanna - MentorI’m a technology enthusiast, who loves being involved in every aspect of a product, including user experience design, development and data science.
