Our 2019 reverse, cross-industry mentoring program in WA is about to take flight and we would like you to participate.
There are many benefits to being involved in a mentoring program. Mentors have an opportunity to invest themselves in someone who is keen to learn from a seasoned professional. Mentees are able to share ideas with someone who has walked down the same path. At ICON, we are pleased to share the benefits of mentoring with our members.
Our WA mentoring program is now it its second year. This cost-effective program matches professionals aspiring to leadership with established senior leaders and provides a framework for creating and building mentoring relationships.
"I feel external mentor/mentee relationships are really important. Having previously benefited from being mentored earlier in my career, it is very rewarding to pay it forward in now being a mentor." ICON Mentor WA, 2018

Organisations today must constantly evolve to stay ahead. So how do we successfully embed change throughout an organisation?
In this webinar, Angela explores the link between an organisation’s purpose, culture and reputation. Participants learn about how people experience change and what organisations can do to support their people, with a particular focus on the non-rational side of change. Angela grounds the session in the Four Rooms of Change® methodology, using real life examples to illustrate key points. Participants will walk away with a new understanding of transformational change and practical tips on how to continually evolve while embedding change in their organisations

Using the ten principles behind great customer experiences
Matt JohnsAs a qualified former under cover officer, Matt has spent a long time understanding what drives human behaviour. Matt uses his unique experience in the police and as the Acting Chief Strategy Officer at Deloitte to help firms develop a deep understanding of the experience they are currently creating for their customers.
Matt believes the experience your organisation creates for your customers is one of the most powerful competitive advantages you can develop. Yet too many businesses are leaving this to chance and in many cases barely doing enough to keep up with their competition. Together with you, he seeks to understand how they truly feel and think, not just what they are prepared to say.
From this base, he works with you to visualize the end to end experience by tracking the emotive journey of the customer and identifying opportunities to transform the experience. He guides you through a process of targeted ideation to design new, compelling experiences, including robust testing to ensure each new idea will have the desired impact. Ultimately, his goal is to help you design deliberate experiences for your customers that will create true competitive advantage.
