conversations with mentors
episode 2 of 6
In individual conversations with our guests – each of them highly committed, experienced and renowned in their respective fields – we discuss the uncertainties as well as possibilities that the current pandemic has thrown up. We ask our mentors to share their perspectives on the three pivotal aspects of our lives: communication, learning and community.
