ICON NSW Mentoring Program Launch

In partnership with program sponsor, Marsden Group, the ICON NSW Committee is excited to launch the 2017 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.

As with last year’s program, this year we will run two programs – one for junior-mid level B2B professionals (Assistant through to Advisor/Executive) and one for our senior cohort of B2B professionals (Manager and above).

Our junior-mid level 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.

The senior program will run in the same way as the junior-mid level program, however, it is designed to act as an "ideas network" for senior B2B professionals – sharing ideas across non-competing industries in a confidential environment.  We suggest that the mentor and mentee meet on six occasions, however, this will again be at the discretion of the mentor and mentee. (Mentors from the junior program are, of course, also welcome to apply to be a mentee in the senior program.)
