Speed Mentoring

Many experienced professionals talk about the value having a mentor can add to an emerging HR professional's development. With the next intake of the AHRI Mentoring program not too far away, come along to the next emerging professionals event to taste what mentoring may be able to do for your career.

What is speed mentoring?

The concept is similar to speed dating, groups of mentees spend time with a mentor from the HR Industry. During this time, you'll have the opportunity to ask any questions you like and benefit from the mentor’s skills and experience. You will spend time with a number of our mentors and have the opportunity to speak with a variety of professionals with different skills and experience. Don’t miss this great opportunity!
