We’re just about half-way through our inaugural Mentoring Program and feedback has been outstanding! Read below from one of the participants:
Mentoring Pair: Scott Welsh, Colliers International | Wisconsin and Andrew Schoene, M&I, a part of BMO Financial Group
Submitted by: Andrew Schoene
I have had the pleasure of meeting with Scott twice since the initial kick off meeting for the mentor program. The first meeting was over lunch at Mason Street Grill. Our conversation was a good mix between business and personal interests. I was very impressed by Scott’s thoughtful and genuine responses as I fired off questions about his career. I was equally impressed by the level of interest he showed in my career and me personally. I left the meeting feeling very fortunate to have been included in such a great program.
Our second meeting took place at the Inland Companies (now Colliers – Wisconsin) headquarters at the former Pabst Brewery site. One of the topics that came up frequently in our first meeting was the role culture can play in success, and Scott offered me the opportunity to drop by the Inland/Colliers office to get a first hand look at their culture. After touring what is undoubtedly the coolest office space I have seen to date (it was all the Pabst memorabilia that really won me over), we hung out in Scott’s office for a while and caught up. Between the great working environment and the energy of all the employees, it was very apparent that Scott and his Partners at Inland/Colliers have created a culture that is geared for success. I am excited for our relationship to continue to develop, and very grateful that Scott has been so willing to share his time and experience with me.
