Abir Hossain, Juteborg: Otto is a great mentor. I say this with full conviction, since I have been privileged to have limited yet the most impactful scope of getting a bit of his mentorship. My sincere gratitude to him and all the best wishes for the future success.
Colin Tan, Firecroft: Otto was my business mentor from Warwick Business School (WBS). As my mentor he was excellent! Through many searching questions and advice, he has helped me plan my next career moves and understanding the opportunities available. However Otto was more than just a mentor to me. He was my coach and advisor. He was an essential part of my job search process - helping with CV writing, interview preparation and providing advice when I had multiple job offers. He was always available for me when I needed him. I had several mentors and coaches during my career and I think Otto was the best. Through my interactions with Otto, his leadership capabilities and strategic thinking always came through. I would strongly recommend Otto to any companies.
Edwin Blanchard, CIPD: Otto was kind enough to take time out of his hectic international schedule to mentor me over a 2 year period. He brings an incisive & well-rounded business perspective, that helps rapidly filter those activities that make a difference. Otto has actively helped me explore my career direction balanced by personal milestones. During that time, he shared his broad, practical insights about career direction, role planning, people management, personal brand & challenging me mentally to ‘step up’ to senior roles. I have enjoyed tapping into his astonishing experience and believe his help has contributed to accelerating my career.
