"I definitely learnt a lot from the mentorship session with Olivia on corporate D&I considerations and practices. It would be immensely helpful for my social enterprise to design better programmes and initiatives supporting working caregivers. I’m really grateful for this wonderful opportunity offered by Time Auction!" — Michelle Chan, Mar 2022
"Thank you so much for Olivia's time on the 1-2-1 mentorship session. I appreciated her energy and passion. Listening to her sharing the "failure" story experience on how she bounce back takes courage and humility. Reflecting on what she said, being authentic and being true to yourself to inspire/support/engage your team is a must for a leader." — Steven Lau, Mar 2022
