Vanessa E.'s review on Jun 16, 2020

I wish I made contact with Namrata sooner. She had so much insider knowledge into the roles I was looking at and gave me all the tools needed to apply. It was an absolutely pleasure being mentored by her. I would recommend her for anyone looking for honest and insightful feedback.

Martin S.'s review on Jun 10, 2020

After a number of years drifting in the same company I was being made redundant and realised I needed help to reignite my career and to discover what I wanted to do, what wold drive me then to map a route out to get there. It seemed logical to find a coach or someone more experienced to help with the process. After a lot of research and chats with a number of coaches I felt Namrata's approach, experience and career to date was the best fit for me. The sessions we have had have positively achieved what I was looking for and has helped to wake me up and rediscover the drive I had before I started drifting. Her knowledge and guidance in IT leadership, her advice to team management, approaching interviews, building cv and authenticity has been invaluable and I couldn't recommend her highly enough

Praveena K.'s review on May 26, 2020

I was looking for a career mentor who understood the specific context of my stage, who is honest & direct in communication approach and can support the journey as I pursue the next stage of my career. I found Namrata (Nam) through a group she was running to bring together career mums. A few chats later, I was delighted to start sessions in earnest with a clear direction and focus. Nam has a broad range of experience particularly relevant for leading modern organisations with Technology at their core. Mentoring is a personal journey where understanding of the wider world as well as the person at the centre are key to designing the change strategy. I look forward to the process as well as the developments that this will bring over the coming months!

Chilee N.'s review on May 23, 2020

Namrata was extremely professional and really took her time to ask relevant questions and listen carefully to my answers. She teased out a few things I wasn't even aware of. The finished product was polished and professional and I would highly recommend her services!

Joe S.'s review on May 06, 2020

Great advice and confidence boost. I needed some help with my interview technique after years in the same role, and Nam settled my nerves and provided excellent advice that defiantly helped at the interview. I'm confident that this is the reason the interview went so well, and I was offered the job. Excellent communication before the session, friendly and approachable, and easy to speak to. I'm pleased I hired The Career Mentor and would recommend you speak to Nam to see if she can help you!

Divija V.'s review on Jan 14, 2020

I took Nam’s help for career advice as well as help with my MBA application. Nam was very helpful and gave me many useful tips. She was approachable and responsive when I required her help outside our agreed session. Her sessions are great value for money as well as she spends the amount of time that she believes you require for that session rather than a fixed amount. I’ve had an excellent experience with her and I would highly recommend!

AC E.'s review on Nov 17, 2019

This is an amazing and resourceful career mentor. I spoke to Namrata on the phone for the first time and within the first 10 mins into the conversation, she already got me stirred up and my brain was stimulated with career options and how to market my brand. That phone conversation lasted for over 30mins during the initial consultation and in the end, she had shared valuable ideas with me even when she was not sure I was going to hire her, I thought to myself, "this is passion for what she does". If you need someone honest, passionate about your success, humane and supportive, I think Namrata is the person. She is so good she can support you even at last minute notice. I will definitely retain her services for as long as necessary. Thank you Namrata for your excellent service to me over this weekend. Jayden.

Rachel E. said "In all honesty I wasn't sure I would work well with a Life Coach - but I left feeling empowered and - best of all - normal (!) for feeling the way I did, with a far better understanding of why I was feeling and acting the way I was. She is kind, compassionate and a true inspiration.
