Mentorship vs Coaching, with Ashleigh Tennent, Founder of More Happi & Lisa Rodwell, CEO at Daye

The golden mentorship moments keep on coming as we head into episode two of our new mentorship feature series. 

This week, James and Hannah are joined by Ashleigh Tennent, Founder of the coaching platform, More Happi and Lisa Rodwell, the CEO of Daye, the company bridging the gender gap in medical research and innovation. 

Together, the four discuss how to find your perfect match in a mentor and a coach and how to nurture those relationships. 

Ashleigh & Lisa
“You want someone who’s lived that same experience, and hopefully either they can pass on what worked for them, but also what didn’t work for them.”
