Inspire Me Mentors

A common connection and genuine interest in someone who you relate to, can be the first & best step in finding a Mentor

Both Christine and Margie have mentored many people of all ages and life stages. They particularly relate to women who are looking for professional or personal mentoring, women re-evaluating where they are at, women re-entering the workforce, women looking for extra support to navigate their pathway.

As mentors we allow you to see your potential and your pathway to greater success in work and in life.

You will form a close bond with us, either Margie or Christine or both, as we share our knowledge and experience with you to expand your professional and personal development. 

A game changer in mentoring is allowing you to see your own potential and then inspire and motivate you to shine.

Get in touch with Margie and Chris via our online form or via our Facebook Messenger or M: 021620026
