Mentoring Programme

Launched in 2016, the ISCA Mentoring Programme is a 9-month programme designed to provide CFO aspirants with access to experienced C-Suite Executives to learn, to network and to grow. Through this one-to-one mentoring programme, mentees can pick up valuable tips on career growth, leadership management skills and stakeholder communication, amongst many other areas of expertise which the mentor could offer. An external mentor can also present a different perspective on work-related challenges and offer plausible advice to serve as a sounding board for ideas and career-related decisions.
