20 April 2021 | The renewable energy sector is innovative, forward-thinking, and driven by entrepreneurs and leaders with a vast base of knowledge and experience. To leverage this expertise and support knowledge sharing in the industry, GET.invest has been supporting the global association for the off-grid solar energy industry (GOGLA) in running the Leadership Advice Network (LEAN).
Initiated in April last year, LEAN is a peer-mentoring network that connects off-grid solar industry C-level leaders with peers and other industry specialists so that they can support each other and help each other thrive as leaders. Becoming part of LEAN means getting matched with a peer or industry specialist, or group, for a period of six months, with each participant taking on a peer-mentoring role. Mentoring tools, best practices and relevant complementary resources, such as GET.invest’s Covid-19 Business Continuity and Cash Flow Management Tools, are provided to help maximise the value of LEAN sessions.
With about 120 individuals matched in the two application rounds, GOGLA and GET.invest hope that the network will create stronger relationships and new partnerships between industry leaders and encourage collaboration that will help the industry persevere throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
