ICON Mentoring

Mentoring is strong within the ICON community and this facilitated program actively connects mentors and mentees in the same geographic region.


ICON’s most senior members take pride in giving back to the profession via mentoring relationships and mentees benefit from the significant experience and networks of these leaders.


ICON’s mentoring program encourages mentees to take ownership of their own goals and aspirations and actively seek advice from their mentors. Mentors encourage mentees to identify current and future challenges, helping them to become prepared and resilient professionals.


Mentors also benefit from the program by polishing their leadership skills and getting fresh perspectives from younger professionals.


The ICON Mentor Program is delivered through the Regional Committees. Please contact your local committee for more information.


The program encourages mentees to:

Identify goals and create strategies to achieve these goals

Receive advice and networking opportunities

Confront and discuss existing challenges

Identify their next challenge

Mentors will benefit from:

Developing their own leadership skills while helping others to develop theirs

Learning from mentees’ innovative ideas and concepts

Developing creative solutions to challenges presented by the mentee

Helping to shape the careers of marketers within professional services

Giving back to the professional services sector  which they have been part of for many years    

There are both immediate and long term benefits for mentees:

Strategies and tools for achieving career aspirations

A stronger sense of professional self

Increased self esteem and confidence

Improvement in existing skills and development of new skills

An insight into leadership and management roles

Increased networking opportunities

The best mentor and mentee relationships are often those which develop naturally on their own accord over time. The ICON mentoring program is designed to simply kick-start the mentoring process by connecting mentees to mentors they would perhaps be unable to connect with outside the program. Once connected, it is up to the mentor and mentee as to how they structure and maintain their professional relationship. It is expected that many relationships will continue to grow and prosper once the six month program is complete.

    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

    Our mentoring program in WA is underway for 2019 and we would like to invite you to an informal lunch.

    For mentors and mentees this will be an opportunity to get together, get to know other mentors and mentees and share experiences and ideas as we embark on the mentoring journey together. There are many benefits for everyone involved in a mentoring program so the lunch session is also a good opportunity for those not already registered for the program to come along and find out more about it.

    The lunch event wouldn’t be complete without a bit of speed mentoring! We have organised a fun and lively three-part speed mentoring session to give you the opportunity to mix with our whole group of mentors and mentees to have brief, career-focussed conversations with our pool of seasoned professionals. Come with your thinking cap on in order to ask questions, resolve a challenge and participate in discussions around career advancement and development.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
