Accepting applications for Mentees Now! 

The format matches participants who could benefit from sharing their knowledge, experience or connections. It allows for quick-fire exchange of ideas about professional development or business needs and targeted networking, with the potential to initiate an ongoing mentoring relationship.

 

Each mentee receives four x 15min sessions with different mentors during the event. Prior to the event, both mentees and mentors will receive "dance cards" to familiarize themselves with who they will be meeting on the day of the event. 

All Mentees will be provided with guided questions to help the flow of conversation, establish expectations and to ensure both parties (mentors and mentees) get the most out of the experience.

Following the event, mentees will be given guidance on how to effectively follow up with mentors if they wish to develop a longer-term mentorship. This will be at the mentor’s discretion and availability.

 

We also provide suggested topics to help drive conversation, with supporting reading materials. Topics include:

  • Making a great first impression

  • Building rapport

  • Networking

  • Learning the job

  • Managing conflict

  • Balancing work/life and leisure

  • Being resilient

The program is open to people of all genders working in the Media, Marketing or Advertising industry, who want to learn from industry leaders.
