We're excited to share the news that tickets are now on sale for our first in a series of exclusive speed mentoring events, taking place on Thursday 20th June.
Together with a number of other events we've got lined up for 2019, our series of speed mentoring sessions will support participants in developing and honing the skills we all need, to maximise our individual and collective impact, and improve the defence output in the process.
Find out more about the event below and visit our Eventbrite page to register for your place - allocated on a first come first served basis so don't miss out!
And remember, the benefits of speed mentoring are felt by both mentees and mentors, so do please do think carefully about which role you'd like to fulfill on this occasion.
Speed mentoring is a riff on speed dating that allows mentees to meet with several mentors for a series of short, focused conversations, providing an opportunity to trial a mentor or mentee role in a relaxed, non-pressurised environment.
The benefits of mentoring in terms of broadening perspective, enhancing communication skills, building contacts and creating space for reflection are widely stated. It is also crucial in furthering an inclusive work culture.
Our speed mentoring evening will see the defence private sector mentoring the defence public sector and vice versa, enhancing the experience for all involved. Whilst mentors can be women or men, the mentees will be women, bringing together those who work in defence with plenty of time for networking and sharing experience, expertise and inspiration.
When and where?
Our partner for our inaugural speed mentoring event is PA Consulting. The evening will be hosted at their London office: 10 Bressenden Place, SW1E 5DN.
Registration will open from 5.30pm, for a 6pm start. There should be time for around 6 short mentoring conversations during the course of the event, with networking accompanied by refreshments from 7.30pm.
Simply head over to our Eventbrite page to get your ticket.
There are 4 types of ticket on sale - all are the same price. Please make sure you buy the ticket that refers to the role you would like to take at the speed mentoring evening e.g. if you work in the private sector and would like to come along as a mentee, please buy a Private Sector Mentee ticket.
We hope to see you on 20th June but don’t worry if you can’t make this date or if the ticket you want is sold out, as more sessions are planned later this year.
