SPEED MENTORING | 5:45 for a 6pm kickoff | Tue 1 May
Fast, fun and focused - our two-way mentoring game is based on equality and the belief that we all have something to give and to receive regardless of our age or stage.
Take turns being both mentor and mentee, share your experience, gain clarity and diverse input on your current challenges and make new business friends.
With Talkpoint networking is never 'awkward' - we use our facilitation and production skills to create experiences often described as 'energising' and 'refreshing'.
The game takes 90 minutes and will wrap up at 7:30 sharp - participants are welcome to stay on and join us for a drink and to continue conversations until 8pm.
WHO is this event for?
Professionals from corporate or not-for-profit, entrepreneurs, consultants, anyone with an interest in making genuine connections. This is an inclusive event based on equality and the value of diverse thinking - everyone is welcome!
