Free Mentoring via the ICSA 

Being a Company Secretary can be both a rewarding and challenging experience and sometimes it can be helpful to speak confidentially to an independent third party to help you think things through – for example if you are:-
·         establishing yourself in a new role;
·         experiencing a particularly challenging period, or challenging work relationships;
·         feeling like you need to build your confidence, personal impact or soft skills;
·         experiencing significant change at work, or feel like it is time for a change;
·         needing some clarity on your career next steps;

I have certainly felt all of these at times so I was delighted when I read that the ICSA were introducing a free mentoring scheme for all members and were looking for volunteer mentors.  I, along with nine other ICSA members volunteered to take part.  We all attended a training course earlier in the summer and I am really looking forward to working with my first mentee.

ICSA are offering 2 to 6 free mentoring sessions with trained ICSA members from a variety of sectors and backgrounds.  If you would like to take advantage of this new service contact ICSA at

ICSA are also considering introducing a paid Coaching service to help members find qualified coaches, further details will be released next year.
