Congratulations to Paralympic Swimmer Susie Rodgers

Rio 2016 selection

Thrilled to hear that my mentee, Susie Rodgers, has been selected to represent GB team at the forthcoming Paralympics in Rio this summer. Delighted for her even though it means our mentoring sessions are on hold for the moment while she focusses on adding to the three bronze medals she won for the GB paralympic swimming team at London 2012.

 

I am mentoring Susie as part of the International Woman’s Forum 2016 mentoring programme which helps elite athletes transition from a career in sport to business.

Mentoring Triple Bronze Medallist Paralympic Swimmer

MenteeIt has been a busy few months with a lot happening! One new endeavour that stands out, however, is my first face-to-face meeting with my new mentee, Susie Rodgers. Susie is an multi-award winning athlete who won triple bronze for the GB paralympic swimming team at London 2012 and is looking to develop her career in the nonprofit sector.

 

As a member of the International Woman’s Forum, I am proud to be mentoring Susie as part of EY’s Women Athletes Business Network 2016 mentoring programme. This programme helps elite athletes transition from a career in sport to other professional careers.

 

I look forward to offering Susie support and guidance over the coming year to help her reach her goals.
