International leaders in mentoring

Chairman Mentors International developed and pioneered the mentoring of CEOs and board level executives in international companies. With over 15 years experience and still solely focussed on mentoring, we are truly global leaders.

"The mentoring relationship is typically one of sounding board and trusted confidant. Personal chemistry is vital and relevant experience essential for the interaction to be both valuable and engaging. It is a two-way exchange where each benefits, both professionally and personally, from the conversation."

Sir Roger Carr, Chairman of BAE Systems plc

"For me, absolute trust sits at the heart of a good mentoring relationship. CEOs can often feel lonely, and mentoring provides the opportunity for them to share very private questions and concerns with somebody whose judgement, professional experience and integrity they respect."

Jan du Plessis, Chairman of BT Group plc

"I mentor for CMi because they offer me the opportunity to engage with great executives who aim to become even better at leading large global companies. The format, level and content suits both parties and it is rewarding to accompany a CEO or CEO candidate on the journey towards improved and sustainable value creation."

Dr Franz Humer, Former Chairman and CEO of Roche Holding Ltd and of Diageo plc

The CMi mentoring is rewarding for both parties. It offers a secure environment to discuss complex questions in absolute confidence. Mentees have a unique opportunity from those meetings to explore different strategies."

Daniel Bernard, Vice-Chairman of CapGemini, former CEO and Chairman of Carrefour and former Chairman of Kingfisher
