​Mentoring: Your Next Career Progression β€” Have you ever found yourself wishing for more in your career but felt unsure of what direction to go in? Most people's career path progression is climbing the corporate ladder. But not everyone necessarily wants this type of progression or realizes that there are different paths to follow to find more satisfaction in their career.

​Successful career development requires much more than technical and job-related skills. One of the best routes could be mentoring, where you can develop your leadership skills and help others learn, grow, and improve their skills. It's an opportunity to build your communication skills, expand your viewpoints, craft your soft skills, consider new ways of approaching situations and professional relationships and networks. In this event, our speakers will discuss the traits you need to be a successful mentor? Is becoming a mentor helping you find the next progression on your career?
