Small Business Mentoring

Mentoring is transformational

It’s a fact of life that we all benefit from the advice of a mentor who can see beyond the resume and deeply examine the relationship between the professional and personal.

Chief Sparrow, Giovanna, has spent many years honing this skill during her career. As a professional mentor, she works with her mentees to build self-confidence, awareness and fine tune their relational skills. As a result, she has helped many mentees across industries and experience levels in their long-term personal and professional development.

Whether you are a small business owner, a professional preparing for your next career step, a mother returning to the work force or a senior executive transitioning to retirement, Giovanna’s guidance can bring you the insight you need to take the next step.


"Giovanna is a mentoring superstar and extremely invested in the career paths and aspirations of those around her. She is a big picture thinker who helps connect the dots and goes above and beyond when it comes to creating introductions and connections. There needs to be more people like Giovanna around in the workplace - it's refreshing to come across someone who is so supportive of the growth and development of others".

"In a very challenging year, Giv has been an invaluable resource. Her mentoring style is highly approachable, but structured in a way that gets right to the heart of the challenge at hand. I left each session inspired and with a clear path of action. I could not recommend Giovanna enough".

"Giovanna is an energetic human with great ability to see through the ‘noise’ of work and business and get to the core issues that may be holding you back in business and in life. My business has grown significantly in the past year which is in part due to Giovanna’s personal coaching".

"Working with Giovanna was like working with the fairy godmother of Marketing and Business Development! Giovanna recruited me for the Sales & Marketing position at Walkerscott. A new role in a new country, Giovanna took me under her wing for 6 months with her expert of the marketing business, her amazing energy, ideas and insight helped me craft my skills to settle into my role at Walkerscott. 

The mentorship and encouragement have given me the confidence to become a leader in my field and create opportunities for the company. Her support and coaching is the best in the field! Because it’s more than just the traditional business mentoring. Giovanna helps you to challenge yourself to achieve a better work/life balance. Her perseverance, integrity and people-loving nature are just a few of your qualities that continue to inspire me.

Thank you for being a great mentor!"
