Question to “Ask Roshan”

What is the purpose of mentoring?

Excerpt from Roshan’s answer

Mentorship has its merits. Look how Warren Buffett mentored Bill Gates and see where Gates is right now. Ultimately, the purpose of mentorship is to learn from each other, i.e. the mentee learning from the mentor, and vice versa. Great mentorship is not only when the mentor imparts knowledge to the mentee; it’s also when the mentee gives something back to the mentor. It’s a two-way street.

How this show came about?
This TV segment called “Ask Roshan” came about when Matt Naylor, Hafiz Hori & Roshan Thiran were travelling to Johor for a gig with Citibank. During the drive over, Matt set up Facebook Live and took questions from everyone via Facebook to Roshan who spontaneously answered them. This resulted in hundreds of questions popping up and getting live answers from Roshan and even some of the Citibank leaders, including their CEO, Lee Lung Nien.
