Why did you choose to become a mentor on the NHS CEP, are you enjoying the experience and how have you supported your mentee/s so far?
‘’I have an innate desire to mentor, especially for the NHS. My career started as a Nurse and some of my greatest mentors came from the NHS. With my recent start-up experience with Tallyfy, I know I can help other founders get from A to B faster by avoiding the pitfalls that we faced.
I am excited to connect with other clinical founders and learn about what they believe is a priority for the NHS and global public health. I also love helping people learn and grow. Mentorship has always given me more purpose, more than any other professional role I have held.’’
What do you think makes a good mentor and can you see the impact that mentoring is having on your mentee?
‘’To be a good mentor you must have the relevant and recent founder experience, approachability, and availability. I have been told that I am direct, yet empathetic.
I believe in failing, pivoting, or doubling down fast.
I have helped founders quickly test and validate new markets, validate their ideas, explore new pricing models, secure strategic partnerships, and close their first investments. I also have experience with early-stage fundraising. Feedback I have received from a founder is that I helped them build ‘focus and confidence’.’’
What is the best piece of advice you have been given in your professional career?
”Focus. Focus. Focus. Pick a niche to serve and own it. Surround yourself with people you want to be like.”
What would you say to someone who is considering becoming a mentor with the NHS CEP?
‘’If you’ve done something successfully before and that formula can be shared to help others, do it. It is hugely rewarding, and you’ll make the world a better place.’’
