NFM Academy x Directors UK – ‘How Mentoring Works’

10:30am-3:00pm Friday 27th March 2020 – Darlington Hippodrome (John Wade Group Lounge), Parkgate, Darlington, DL1 1RR

Mentoring is an incredibly powerful and focused form of developing talent. The relationship works on honesty, openness and using an experienced person to guide personal growth. The session will look at establishing what mentoring is and how mentoring relationships work. A mentoree gets out of a mentoring relationship what they put into it. As an outcome of the session, people will be able to prepare for and develop productive mentoring relationships with their mentors to help them build their careers.

This session will clarify the role and responsibilities of the mentoree and the mentor to ensure productive and positive mentor relationships.
