Kristen Harris is the co-founder and COO of Portfolio Creative, a workforce innovation firm based in Columbus, Ohio, USA. As a member of the EO Columbus chapter, Kristen is an active participant in the EO Mentorship program.
I’ve been matched with seven amazing local mentors so far! I have also served as the chapter Mentorship Chair and on the Global Mentorship Subcommittee.
The benefits of mentorship
For me, the biggest benefits of having a mentor have been the ability to talk with people who have tremendous business experience—people I may never cross paths with otherwise—and learn from their outside perspective. The outside perspective supported with years of experience is so valuable!
