Nurture better mentor relationships - Brisbane
Wed. 24 May 2017, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEST
It seems elusive. Finding someone to give you advice on your career and professional goals, someone who will challenge you and push you to be a better professional and care leader. You want to find a mentor that gets you.
What if it really wasn’t that hard?
Join us. Hear from young professionals and industry leaders about what mentoring has done for them, how they have made them work, and what makes these relationships tick.
You could even come away with your very own mentor.
Wednesday, 24th May
Brisbane CBD (location TBC)
$58.47 (early bird)
$67.87 (general ticket)
Included is a light meal (plus a drink on arrival) in a fresh, modern venue. Run in our signature mini-coaching circles so you are able to get cosy with our presenters and get the best out of each session. It’s the best way to fully understand how people have made mentoring work for them.
This event will give you:
- Practical stories from industry leaders on how mentoring supports their career aspirations/development
- Tips and strategies to nurture your perfect mentor relationships today
- Networking after the sessions to meet potential mentors/mentees and grow your professional network
Why is this important? Too often we say we are too busy to find a mentor BUT finding the right mentor is the very thing that will give you better management and leadership strategies, and help you boost your career.
Mentoring is a priority for top leaders as research shows it helps you get promoted, increases your income, and makes you feel more positive about your career.
So why wouldn’t you want to start exploring this right now?
Come along and find out what it is all about.
This Workshop is ideal for someone who:
Doesn't know where to start with finding a mentor.
Holds back from reaching out to potential mentors.
Gets stuck with how mentoring will help them.
Wants to understand how to step up in their career but is unsure where to begin.
Wants their staff to learn a vital set of business skills whilst getting to know other young industry leaders, and upsklling their staff on the importance of mentoring.
