“I have just completed the Advanced Mentor Skills programme run by Conversation Space. Without doubt, it was the best virtual training programme I have been on. As a trainer myself I know how hard it is to create behavioural change, especially in a virtual environment, and this programme delivered. Run over 3 x 90-minute workshops, I found it incredibly thought-provoking and easy to fit into my working week, and I came away with lots of ideas to embed in my mentoring conversations, as well as the organisation.”

Melanie Palethorpe, Learning & Talent Development Advisor, Michelmores

In their words...

"The Kerning the Gap mentoring scheme, which has now helped hundreds of women to drive forwards in their careers, simply wouldn’t exist without the generosity and straight-up excellence of the team at The Conversation Space. Their passion for mentoring is unparalleled, and feedback from participants always excellent. It’s an absolute pleasure to have developed this programme with them."
