ODs helping ODs - the OD Mentorship Programme

Supporting one another through connections, knowledge and opportunities within a trusted community.
24 Aug 2021
OD Support

Behind the "invention" of the ODU Mentoring programme seven years ago was a philosophy of "ODs helping ODs". It is a mainstay of many of the top school's alumni associations and it has worked well for us.

These pandemic times have caused great uncertainty - but also great creativity as many of us look for innovative ways of deploying old skills. Whether this is looking to sell products or services or to change careers, it doesn't really matter. Help in both instances is always very welcome.

We would like to bring to your attention, a platform of ODs available to assist you with their experience and know-how.
