The mentoring program has given me the expertise to examine quantitative and qualitative data of a company to determine how they contribute positively or not to the planet. The program has also given me the knowledge to dive deeper and write better analyses.

My mentor Olu provided me with the knowledge I needed to enter the field as a skilled analyst. Impaakt is a platform that really assesses an organization's impact, and it is with great joy and satisfaction that I contribute to it.

On my path to the Impaakt Certification, I was fortunate to be a part of Impaakt’s mentoring program. The opportunity to be a part of the Impaakt family before getting certified was a truly enriching experience. The mentoring program highlighted the key skills needed to write an insightful analysis and gave me the space to raise my queries with an assurance that they would all be answered. My mentor also arranged for a one-on-one call where he shared his experiences and meticulously took me through the entire process and the nuances of writing an analysis. This program definitely helped speed up my certification time and has given me the much-needed confidence in my role as an Impaakt analyst. I have immensely benefitted from this program and thank the Impaakt team for letting me be part of it.

The Impaakt mentoring program is very helpful during the certification process. I joined the mentoring program with my mentor (Olu Omo) and the whole process of certification became easy and a reality to me. I would say the advantage of joining the mentoring program includes having shorter review periods. Also, before you submit your analysis on the platform for review, the mentor walks you through your analysis and helps you to write better. My mentor would normally give me feedback in less than 48 hours of submitting my draft. The whole certification process for me took +-14 days in total. I would definitely recommend the mentoring program.

Before entering this program, I struggled to get my first article published on the Impaakt platform. When looking back at my first published analysis, I know that it's definitely not the best analysis that I could have written. So, all credits go to the mentoring program and the mentor for helping me learn the basics of writing impact notes on the platform in a more organized manner. After joining the mentoring program, I was certified in 2-3 weeks.

Moreover, the mentor who was assigned to me was very kind and responsive. I loved discussing and asking questions, which he answered efficiently and in a detailed manner. If you had a star-point rating system for mentors, I would have given 5 out of 5 to him.

Overall, this is a fantastic platform, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. The platform has provided me with a better perspective in examining firms' sustainability responsibilities as an impact analyst. The training was as welcoming as it could be during my certification process, with my mentor and reviewers guiding every step of the way, and for future trainees/certified analysts, it is one of the best you can acquire, with your dedication of course. After my first published analysis, I enrolled in the mentoring program, which greatly accelerated my training and understanding of the platform, various SDGs, and holding firms responsible for their actions.

Personally, I'd attribute my certification to the course. It helped me draw focus on the importance of sustainability and equipped me with the knowledge to critically assess and write on issues that have a real impact on the world. The program is very insightful and enabled me with the right tools to analyse the environmental and social impact that corporations have. I'm especially grateful to my reviewers and mentor for providing me with ample guidance and constructive feedback throughout the process. Glad I signed up for it!

I am pleased to say that if I am a certified analyst now, it's because of the mentoring program and the mentor, Ebenezer, was so helpful in the whole procedure. My mentor was very cooperative. First I did not take it too seriously, but my mentor was very helpful and reviewed my mistakes. Before joining the program, my first two analyses got rejected, but with the help of this programme within 15 days, I became certified. This was a very cooperative process and my advice for future analysts is to join this mentoring program.

Emmanuel Ojo

The mentorship program went a long way in helping me become certified quickly as I found it hard to navigate through the topics to write, how to obtain data for my analysis and basically find my way around Impaakt. Through the program, I was able to find what was hard quite easy as my mentor helped me understand the platform better, arrange my analysis in the proper order with detailed meaning and also helped me overcome the fear and worries during the process of writing an analysis.The mentorship program is what I'll repeatedly recommend to any new analyst who wants to climb the ladder to being certified.For me, the program is a 10/10.

Elijah Okpara

Impaakt as an organization has been very beneficial to me. I started a couple of months back and I already feel like part of the family. I get to be a part of something bigger and a very important cause, very few people get to make a difference and somewhat hold companies, businesses, conglomerates accountable for the impacts (positive or negative) in the environments they operate. I am grateful to be a part of it.It is however important to note that my training and certification process was seamless even as my skills were molded to standard by a couple of wonderful supportive persons.
