Event description


Too often we find ourselves saying "I'm too busy to find a mentor"

Finding someone to give you advice on your career and professional goals, someone who will challenge you aim higher can feel too hard. Can anyone really do it all?

What if finding a mentor that gets you 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.

Monday, 22nd May

Melbourne CBD (TBC)

$58.47 (early bird)
$67.87 (general ticket)

Included is a light meal with a drink on arrival, 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? 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.
