Mentee Comments

Mentors – are motivators, educators, initiators of “a different approach” and supporters of those influenced. Dr. Bennett has been all of the above to me and many others. Insatiable appetite for pushing boundaries, not biased by history and a formidable business competitor are also appropriate labels.

This nomination is a very small way to acknowledge the influence Dr. Bennett has had on my professional and personal life.
