Mentorship has transformative power. In today's business world, it has proven to be a critical element of success by getting people in positions of influence actively supporting, sponsoring and guiding the careers of women as they progress through their careers, particularly at pivotal decision points. However, asking someone to mentor you and managing that relationship could be at times nerve-wracking.
WCT is excited to offer a webinar that will help mentors and mentees achieve the most from any mentorship engagement. Fiona Gao, a global marketing leader, and Angela Brown, President and CEO of Moneris, recently participated in the WCT Protege Project. Based on their experiencem they have released a white paper "The Modern Mentor: Reimagining the Interconnectedness of Women in Business" that provides excellent advice for those in a mentorship or sponsorship relationship. Fiona and Angela will share key takeaways from their sponsorship experience, and their white paper, in this not-to-be-missed webinar.
The webinar will focus on topics such as:
Setting and sharing clear objectives.
Getting the most out of meetings.
Referrals, introductions and networking.
Drawing to a positive conclusion.
Please join us as two leaders in the WCT community share their experiences and insights on building successful mentorship engagementments.
