Nick Chaplin is Solution Delivery Director at Coupa Software, and has a long history of implementing and managing support processes. Nick was excited to become an OKO mentor as he’d been looking for a way to share his experience of the corporate world with people starting out in their career who might find the world of business alien and daunting.
“OKO is a really smart and frictionless way to foster meaningful mentoring relationships. For me as the mentor it opened a door to allowing me to do something that I've wanted to do for a long time, and bring my experience from the corporate world over into a mentoring relationship with a young person.”
“It’s very simple to use, and uncanny in its ability to match me with a mentee with a similar personality type. Although we come from different places and have different life experiences, the matching allowed us to find a lot that we had in common which served as the basis for our discussions around my mentees strengths and areas for development.”
“OKO allowed me to create a connection with a young person and get them started on their mentoring journey. It's a reminder of how I saw the world when I started out in my career, and gives me a fresh perspective on how young people see the world now, and what their aspirations and hopes are. Gaining this perspective, combined with the hugely rewarding feeling that you're helping in a small way to support a young person in the first steps of their career is the value that OKO has brought.”
“Becoming a mentor with OKO gives you an opportunity to develop your mentoring skills, and reflect on the things that have made a difference to your own career and help a young member of society to benefit from the insights that you gained.”
