NEXUS has given me the opportunity to share some of my experiences while at the same time become encouraged myself about the potential class of rising leaders in the community. Developing a relationship with my protégé has been a privilege and a joy.
Mentor / Vice President, Consultant & Licensed Professional Counselor / Allie Prescott & Partners
In NEXUS I have found a glimpse into the future of Memphis, with people of diverse backgrounds combining their collective wisdom and talents for the betterment of the community. My mentor provided me with his unique point of view which prompted me to look at issues outside of parameters based solely on my past experiences.
Protege / Vice President / Commercial Advisors, LLC
I’ve had the opportunity to participate in NEXUS as both a protege and a mentor, and both experiences have challenged me personally and professionally. The sessions are timely and applicable, and the personal interaction provides a type of “support group” that is often missing within the traditional business community.
Mentor and Past Protege / Senior Vice President of Marketing, FTN Financial
I was a protege in the very first year NEXUS was introduced. Not only did I meet a great mentor but I was exposed to the community. I have built a network for which I am always indebted to NEXUS.
Past Protege / Director Information Systems / Center City Commission
I felt like I got a renewed passion for our city. So many of the speakers really celebrated the great benefits Memphis has to offer as well as our unique culture and resources. Additionally, I got a chance to network with several different professionals in various careers, which was a great opportunity for me. As a teacher, I usually only network with others in education.
NEXUS Protégé and Teacher, The Soulsville Charter School
NEXUS exposed me to a diverse group of individuals with a common goal of improving themselves and Memphis. It provided a great network for future fellowship and leadership opportunities, and the protégé-mentor relationship brought many wonderful learning experiences.
