Partners and Founders of Geo Counsellors
The concept of formalising a platform where one could transfer years of knowledge, skills and on the ground experience, from ‘experienced business leaders’ to a ‘younger generation, as well as new entrepreneurs’ has been a topic of passion and much discussion for the partners of Geo Counsellors.
The ideology is driven by a passion for people “young and old’, as well as personal experience in understanding of the value created from the sharing of knowledge and skill for purpose of empowerment and growth.
The launch of Geo Counsellors, a formalised online mentoring platform , addresses the need to support specialised skills in a workplace. specifically, but not limited to young professionals (predominantly Millennials and Gen Z’s), and or new entrepreneurs.
The concept is one of ‘Creating Shared Value’ – where experienced business leaders and industry experts (‘Mentors’) positively impacts a future economy, by imparting knowledge to a younger generation or new business professional (‘Mentees’). The platform is a “paid for” mentorship programme which therefore makes it measurable, sustainable and scalable.
