Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) has announced the 2023 launch of its Mentor Program.
The objective of the programme is to connect event professionals across the country to foster skill and expertise sharing, and enhance career progression prospects.
Successful applicant mentees will be matched based on their unique objectives with an industry expert who will provide counsel and growth guidance in a mentor capacity over a three-month period from April through June.
Applicants must be current MEA members and the Mentor Program will present the fantastic opportunity for budding future leaders of the sector to take advantage of the knowledge and insights of current event industry veterans.
This rollout will aim to develop the skills and confidence of 25 events sector up-and-comers by nourishing their professional character. An online hosted platform will ensure a premium level of interaction, objective tracking, and provide valuable resources for participants.
Chief Executive Office Peter McDonald said of the successful applicants, “They end the program a better version of themselves than the one who that started it, more empowered to achieve both professionally and personally.”
Applications close 20th March 2023.
