Business and Professional Mentoring


Mentoring is a powerful method of leadership and personal development, but you must work with a mentor who constantly challenges you to grow.  Aspiration demands growth, and growth demands change.  That is what I provide as a mentor to clients internationally on Zoom. 


An introductory 30-minute session is free of charge, and if you decide to proceed with ongoing sessions, the fee is NZ$250+GST for 60 minutes, which may be extended by 20 minutes without any further charge.  Informal or spontaneous calls and e-mails will likewise incur no charge. 


The coaching of leadership skills is part of the package.  I use Calendly to make finding a time that suits you easier.  To see when I'm available and find a time that works for you, click here: 

The Debate between Socrates and Aspasia by Nicolas-Andre Monslau



“Andre’s guidance is given with such selfless passion that he has become an embodiment for me of what a “Mentor” truly means.  You will gain from him two critical elements for success:  Wisdom and Truth.  I highly recommend Andre as a coach, and have no doubt he will not only add value to a situation that would need his intervention, but also make a real difference for individuals and organizations in the long term.” 

Karuna Pataudi, Talent Acquisition LEAD/ Human Resource Business Partner, Aurobindo Pharma LLC, New Jersey, USA


“Andre van Heerden is a leaders’ leader.  His wealth of knowledge, diverse experience and wisdom makes him an outstanding mentor for individuals in their professional and personal lives.  His compassion and empathy for the challenges people have in their professional and personal lives underpins his passion for guiding people to become the best they can be in mutual pursuit of a better life for all.  I highly recommend Andre as an advisor and mentor.” 

Lehan Stemmet, Ph.D. Auckland, New Zealand


“Andre’s ability to deliver highly interesting, thought-provoking motivational sessions with passion and integrity leaves people positive, focussed, and driven to motivate, inspire, and ultimately lead their teams well.  I would highly recommend Andre to empower your organisation by creating exceptional leaders.” 

Sandra Mott, Technical & Business Development Manager, Global Proficiency Ltd. Hamilton, New Zealand


“Andre has mentored me and led me to understand that the modern World is made up of so many different factors and aspects, all which have an influence, not only in our business lives but also in our domestic and social lives. He has helped me understand my role as a leader and given me the tools and ideas of how to be a better leader. I have put into practice the skills I have obtained from our sessions together and now have a better relationship with staff and family.” 

Graham Skinner, Managing Director, Quattra Mechanical, Auckland, New Zealand


"Andre is a mentor's mentor and educator's educator.  His enlightened and scholarly contributions to the field of Leadership today are unparalleled. He is the educator I have most admired in my lifetime. And the mentor that I most seek to emulate today. You would be well-served indeed to engage Andre as your leadership coach and mentor, or as a speaker at a corporate event."

Ashley Konson, President of Global Brand Leaders Inc., and Course Director for the MBA Brand Management program at the Schulich School of Business, Toronto


“I am pleased to recommend Andre van Heerden as a talented, dedicated, executive coach who is passionate about helping others.  His exceptional experience, empathy, and track record set him apart as an exceptional resource.” 

Dr. Mary Lippitt, author Brilliant or Blunder and president of Enterprise Management Ltd. Florida, USA


“I’m a big fan of Andre’s work on leadership, based as it is on a depth of scholarly knowledge of history, philosophy, psychology, the arts, ethics and morality.  His life experience as a teacher, soldier, ad man, author, and consultant allows for rich, deep dialogue, framed in the context of the big ideas which shape our civilisation.  I cannot recommend highly enough the benefits to be gained in starting a conversation with Andre.” 

David Hodes, CEO & Founder of Ensemble Partners, Sydney Australia


“Andre is the most inspirational mentor I have encountered over the course of my life.  What makes him stand out from the many fine teachers, professors, and leaders who have influenced me is the utmost respect he shows for individuals as he inspires them to be the best they could be.  This is a theme that runs through Andre’s understanding of leadership development and provides him with a distinct and compelling voice on the subject.  I cannot recommend him highly enough as a dynamic and inspirational mentor and coach.” 

Professor Joe Wallis, Dean, School of Business, American University of Ras Al Khaimah


“Not only does Andre break through the avalanche of “leadership pablum” with authentic, principled thought leadership, but he delivers it in the priceless form of an executable roadmap for success. Indeed, an extraordinary talent.” 

Dennis J. Pitocco, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, BIZCATALYST360, Tampa, Florida, USA
