In the current business climate, whether you are on an entrepreneurial or professional journey, you need all the help you can get.

Mentoring has proven to impact both the success rate of startups and the promotion rate of corporate employees; it is not surprising that 79% of millennials see mentoring as crucial to their career success.

So if everyone wants to be mentored, this must be easy, right? But it is not – we all know of mentoring relationships that have gone nowhere. Don’t let that happen to you! In this session, learn how to build and take advantage of a mentor relationship to shorten your learning curve, build confidence and tap into additional connections.
