Good overview and balance between the big picture and small details.

You are welcoming, and I felt comfortable throughout our session. The pieces of advice you provided were genuine, and it helped to clear most of my doubts and queries.

I am looking forward to more learning and guidance from you.

Yes. The session with Luigi was great and provided me with clear picture on possible new paths in my career

Great session! Find it very helpful. Thanks again.

Luigi is a knowledgeable and warm person. His insights are very valuable and takes the time to review one's profile and tailor his guidance accordingly. I look forward to meeting him again!

The session was quick and to the point, a meeting of like minded people. I enjoyed the insights & recommendations that Luigi shared based on the journey that he has walked. And it also reminded me that Information Security is a worldwide issue, my options for where i could end up are only limited by my imagination.

The follow-up information was also quite a gem, I really appreciated it.

3.January 2022

It was an insightful one. I had a broader perspective about my job search which was kind of limited prior to our meeting.

I have been very pleased with the way that the mentoring session went and I feel that I benefited greatly from being able to discuss work and career-related issues with someone who was not directly involved in my work and had no detailed knowledge of it.

Since starting the mentorship session, I have changed my view towards the career and am certain that I would not have changed my views about the my current role if we had not had our mentorship sessions. The advice received was always dispassionate, well-considered and very constructive, and as such I found it incredibly helpful.

It encouraged me to look at things in a different way and helped me to be able to take a more objective perspective on my achievements, career development options and future plans.

My mentor is really talented and very helpful and had really given time to me and helped me to think through my workload and which areas to prioritize.

We chat a bit about our lives generally and moan a little about the challenges of the work but he is very generous and mainly lets me focus on my most pressing issues.

I couldn’t be happier with the quality of mentorship I received and with the way that this was all organized by Luigi.
