My name is Erica. I am based in Brighton and I run an educational CIC (kick), - a community interest company. I've had lots of careers, despite only being 31 - in the Civil Service Fast Stream, as a management consultant, in HE and now as an entrepreneur. I provide careers education and coaching to both young people and adults that helps them find their strengths, build on their talents and plan their future.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I think mentoring is great! When i was at school, no one ever asked me what I wanted to do or made any suggestions about where I would fit best. It took years of doing what I didn't want to do, to discover what I did want to do! I'd like to speed that process up for others. Also, we live in a complex and changing world - it's likely that you will go through several career changes - I'd like to help develop your ability to be adaptable and flexible, whilst still having direction. I also want to make sure that skills such as project management and presentation skills become a core part of education, as they are useful in every possible career!

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
