Speed Mentoring

The benefits of mentoring are many; from an increase in self-confidence, learning how to take control of your career, being able to visualise the end goal, improving interpersonal skills and building relationships, to name a few.

The AHRI SA Emerging HR Professionals Network Committee invites you to our annual Speed Mentoring event. This event provides the opportunity for Human Resource (HR) students, graduates and those new to the HR profession to meet and gain valuable insights from highly reputable HR professionals.

Attendees will get the chance to sit down with a mentor in small groups for 8 to 10 minutes before moving on to the next mentor. The mentors that will be a part of the event have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share from a wide variety of backgrounds within the HR profession. This event will give people new to HR the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, ask questions and get some advice from people who have been there and worked their way up in their careers. A highlight of the Emerging HR Professional Network calendar!
