One-to-one feedback and personal coaching

The backbone of the accelerator are monthly feedback and mentoring calls from industry insiders that are matched to you and your needs. Every call has a written follow-up and clear next steps for you.


Each month you will also get a session with a performance coach to support you to translate what you are learning, into action and lasting change for you as a person and professional.

Insight from industry leaders

After each call, you will receive tailored content specific to your challenges and goals, to support you with what you need to do to take the next step forward. 

At all times, you will have access to an exclusive video library, featuring insight and advice from industry insiders who are working and succeeding in the industry today.

Case study: Rena Andrews

"Something incredible has come out of this program already two months in. After a mentor call I was able to connect with B. Akerlund’s PR company who have now offered me a place in B.’s PR showroom in LA, The Residency. I am floored by this opportunity which only arose because of this course. Thank you Mastered!"
