Mentoring Exchange video Interview with KONE
Interview with Mr. Danilo De Rossi, Managing Director and Ms. Ida Ročňáková, HR Director from KONE Czech Republic and Slovakia about their idea of Mentoring Exchange

Danilo, how you came up with the idea of Mentoring Exchange?

At KONE we value diversity and inclusiveness and these are values which we share with other Nordic companies . We believe that innovation comes from being exposed to different practices in different industries. Although industries might differ, we believe that fundamentals like the ability to serve Customers and the development of talented People are common and critical to succeed, and initiatives like this are able to create new knowledge and help to bring us to next level.

Ida, to whom is this project addressed and who will benefit from such activity.

This project should address high potential middle and senior managers that are recently appointed to new role or position. They would appreciate an advice from senior manager from other company to get wider perspective and get another point of view.


The Mentoring Exchange is a great platform for sharing experiences and knowledge across different industries that the mentees would otherwise not be exposed to.

The Mentoring Exchange is an excellent opportunity for senior members of our Chamber to give something back to other persons within our community – for free! It is also a rare opportunity for employees of companies in the Nordic chamber to tap into the experience of not only their own colleagues, but from a wide range of people operating in different industries.

The mentees and mentors follow a strict set of rules of engagement Rules of Engagement  and are also vetted to meet the requirements for MENTOR and MENTEE.
