The mentoring session with Mark Valena was an extraordinary experience provided through the Meredith Sharing Shed. It was both insightful and inspiring. Knowledgeable in all areas of business, Mark spoke to my questions concerning self leadership and the core competencies and attributes behind running an organisation, regardless of scale. “Acknowledge the past, be pragmatic about the present and optimistic about the future”, was a key takeaway from our discussion. Highly recommend connecting! Thank you to all involved for this opportunity.
