    ICON VIC Mentoring Program starts in September – Apply Now!

    This year we have received lots of interest in the ICON VIC Mentoring Program. For those of you not already familiar with it, this ICON initiative is designed to increase influence, build collaboration, and extend the opportunity to network among B2B professionals. 

    The aim of this program is to enhance a mentee’s abilities in their current role through connecting them with the experience of a mentor within our community.  Through providing guidance and strategies that will allow mentee’s to improve their performance and confidence, this program will create an influential contribution to the mentee’s career.  Mentors will also benefit from developing their leadership skills and shaping the careers of future B2B professionals.

    The program will run in a similar fashion to previous years with one scheduled meeting each month for a total of six meetings, or more if mutually agreed between the mentor and mentee.  The suggested length of each meeting is one hour and can be arranged at a time, date and location suitable for both parties – we suggest catching up at a café over coffee.  Additional communication may include phone or email interaction, again depending on what is agreed upon between you.

    REGISTER YOUR INTEREST

    Please review and complete the mentor/mentee form in the application pack (found by clicking the link below) and submit to your ICON VIC Committee Mentoring Program contacts by Friday, 18 August 2017.

    Mentoring Program Application Pack (including both mentor and mentee application forms) 

    Once you have submitted the application form and have been matched with your mentor/mentee, mentees will be invoiced by the ICON VIC accounts team.

    COST FOR PARTICIPATION

    ICON Member - Mentee: $88 (GST incl.)

    Non member - Mentee:  $99 (GST incl.) 

    Mentors pay only with their time and knowledge.

    PROGRAM LAUNCH

    Once you have been paired with your mentor/mentee you will receive an email from one of the program contacts advising you of the pairing and introducing you to one another.  The program will officially run from September 2017 to February 2018.

    There will be a mentor/mentee networking and “check in” event in late September (details to follow).

    Again, if you have any questions about the program, please get in touch with your VIC Committee Mentoring Program contacts:

    Business development and marketing teams often have to juggle multiple tasks and keep everyone happy at the same time. Project management is an art and a skill that can make it easier to deliver results and manage time and expectations more effectively.

    During this session Michael West, Project Services Manager, will talk about a simple way to scope a project, establish a plan, and identify risks at the outset in a manner that will allow you to deliver better results. This session will be interactive, and will help you to familiarise yourself with project terminology and techniques that you can use in a project or just to manage large tasks. These tasks or projects could include managing a key event, managing a major marketing campaign, setting up a key client program or redesigning a website.
