Our Programme provides both mentees and mentors with the opportunity to learn, develop and accelerator in their career and life.
The Geovation Mentorship Programme is a one-to-one mentoring scheme.
Programme participants are selected based on their level of interest and commitment, as demonstrated through their application. We aim to match mentors and mentees based on areas of expertise, the skills and knowledge they wish to develop.
We welcome people of all backgrounds and genders to participate in the Mentorship Programme.
If you are selected for the Mentorship Programme, you should expect to commit to:
– Meetings with your mentor or mentee – once a month at the minimum. Can be done remotely or in person-however the mentor and mentee would like it
– To complete feedback forms provided by Geovation at the end of the mentorship programme to highlight your experience
– Engage in the Slack channel that will be set up specifically for the mentorship programme
– Actively participate in the programme until it ends

There are several benefits of being a mentor. It not only serves to give back to our community, but it is also an important development and learning experience. Teaching others is the best way to learn yourself. In the same way, mentors become more competent as leaders and communicators as they guide and help rising talent.
Similarly, there are a lot of benefits to being mentored by someone more experienced and senior than you. A mentor can be a sounding board when the less experienced person comes up against a situation or problem that they are not familiar with or can’t see a solution to. They are there to share advice and offer guidance that enables you to benefit from experiences beyond your own.

Steve started his career in medical electronics designing hardware and software (C/8bit), then went into mobile writing frequency planning software. He took over running their UNIX systems and then rolled out a wide area tcp/ip network across all their UK sites (this was pre-Internet in the UK).
After being told no one would want Internet at home, let alone on their mobile phone, Steve joined Demon Internet (the first UK consumer ISP). Saw it move from entrepreneurial start-up to incumbent telco after it floated (THUS Plc). Then went back into start-up land where he remained ever since.
