Why do you like mentoring with ICE?

Mentoring is a great way to connect with the community and give back with shared experiences. It’s a two-way street that allows growth by gaining perspective from a community leader and their forward-thinking desires and objectives. As a mentor, it gives me the opportunity to provide insights and ideas based on my experiences delivering power projects across Canada and provide general guidance on how to proceed with projects.
