READY TO START YOUR MENTORING JOURNEY?

We believe mentoring is an incredibly valuable tool that can propel your career to new heights. With the support of a great mentor, you develop the skills, knowledge and connections to succeed.

FIND A MENTOR

We truly believe mentoring is undervalued and that with a great mentor supporting you, you can build a phenomenal career. So many businesses lack this crucial support, and our mentor matching program aims to bridge that gap. Whether you’re looking for a mentor to help with a specific short-term goal or you’re looking for more long-term support with your career progression, we’re here to help.

BECOME A MENTOR

Ever looked back at your early career and wish you had someone to go to for advice/guidance, someone who wasn’t your boss?

Well, now’s your chance to be that guiding light for someone else…

Mentoring is an enriching experience, both for the mentor and the mentee. It’s a chance to share your wisdom, offer advice, and help shape the career path of a budding professional. Sound good?

We encourage mentors to commit a minimum of three months to mentoring, dedicating at least 3 sessions/3 hours to their mentee.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK?

MENTEE – APPLICATION PROCESS:

  • You can see the mentors available in the community in our mentor-matching Slack channel
  • You then have the chance to pick the mentor you believe can help you the most
  • I will then send off your details to the mentor
 

MENTOR – SELECTION PROCESS:

  • Once a mentee has applied for to be mentored by you, we’ll drop you an email and let you know! 
  • If you’re lucky enough to have been chosen by multiple mentees then you can choose which marketer you think you can help the most
 

INTRODUCTION:

  • Upon successful matching, both mentor and mentee will receive our Mentor Matching toolkit to facilitate a smooth start
  • The nature of your mentoring relationship is totally up to you. Whether you want to tackle a specific problem/area or you naturally develop a more long-lasting, it’s entirely in your hands!

THINKING ABOUT BEING A MENTOR BUT NOT SURE?

Don’t worry if you’re not a CMO or Marketing Director, you don’t have to be the most experienced person in the room to help other marketers grow!

We provide you with a toolkit that helps first-time mentors understand the process, know what’s expected of them and get started on the journey of being a great mentor. 

What’s included?:

  • How to be an effective mentor?
  • Our mentoring top 5 tips
  • First meeting checklist (before, during and after)
  • How to structure your sessions
  • The key stages of mentoring
  • As well as exercises and tools to help along the way
