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.
