The Event Managers Network mentoring program matches experienced events industry professionals (mentors) with upcoming practitioners, students and others wanting to transition into an events industry role (mentees). 

Expressions of interest have now closed for Intake One, which will commence January 2020 (From January - June 2020).

Mentors and mentees will commit to regular meetings with each other (either face to face or via phone/skype) at least once a month for the six months of the program.

You will receive resources and templates to assist with the mentoring experience. You will also be invited to attend networking events to connect with other mentors and mentees currently participating in the program. 

If you missed out on the program this time around, please complete an expression of interest form via the link and we will notify you when Intake Two commences towards the end of 2020.
