Our flagship and passion project the Mashobane Advisory Training Mentorship Group, we provide free mentorship to our mentees. Anastasia was first introduced to the concept of mentorship twelve years ago by her mentor, Ms Cheryl Carolus, and in compensation for the wisdom and life lessons that were downloaded during her mentorship journey, all her mentor ever asked of her in return was that she pays it forward.
“The mentorship process is very close to my heart because I have seen the positive difference it is making in the lives of my mentees as it has in my life. I will never get tired of sharing my life, time and experiences with my mentees, present and future”, says Anastasia.

The training was extremely valuable. Continue doing a great job. This will lead to changing lives.
This training was an eye-opener. Extremely organized.
I started working with Mrs Machobane in January 2015, providing secretariat services to various companies. Preparing for meetings, attending meetings and minute taking were my core responsibilities. Under close guidance of Mrs Machobane, I learned minutes writing techniques of which I pride myself with today. The journey that started with just minutes taking has molded me into a professional writer, I have written two Integrated Annual Reports thus far. Training she provided taught me the importance of attention to detail, taking risks and believing in my abilities.
When I met Ms Machobane in 2016 all I ever wanted was to learn about minute taking and advance my knowledge within the legal space, at that time I was a former sales banker and the environment was vastly different, writing was not my strong point. I had a very low self-esteem, so in order for me to adapt to any change I had to be mentored by someone who was highly credible, and then I found Ms Machobane. Through her mentorship and guidance I managed to hold positions such as a Board/Company Secretary, project manager, Governance Specialist, Compliance manager and I also mentor interns who wish to specialise within the governance space. I must say the journey was not easy at all, my abilities were pushed beyond limits, and my mindset was switched from being an ordinary minute taker to now an entrepreneur. Working with Ms Machobane gave me great confidence to spread my knowledge for my future career in this field. I highly recommend Ms A Machobane’s mentorship programme there is a lot to be achieved and learnt there.
I joined the mentorship in September 2020 through a mutual contact of Mrs Machobane and I on LinkedIn. The mentorship has been a huge part of my personal and professional development. It assisted me to channel my energy and curiosity into worthwhile and focused activities aimed at progression of the “master plan”. Mrs Machobane created a space for me to develop a more nuanced approach to career planning and my associations beyond the professional sphere. The programme hosts multiple webinars aimed at skills transfer, development and engagement with industry leaders. In a nutshell, it has been thought provoking and life changing.
