I had a very positive response to the idea of “speed mentoring” for our next London Entrepreneur Meetup on 23rd of January so we will proceed with this idea. The speed mentoring will last for about one hour, depending on demand, and there will be plenty of time for networking during and after the session.
Here is how it will work. Each mentoring session will last up to 10 minutes. The mentors will be experienced entrepreneurs or professionals in their field. The mentors will be divided into the following categories:
Funding & Finance
Sales and Marketing
If you would like to be mentored please let me know which specific categories are of interest. You can choose as many as you wish and you will be matched with a mentor and given a time slot. If there are any categories that you require that are not listed above please let me know and I will try to find a suitable match.
If you would like to be a mentor please let me know and please advise if you specialize in any of the above areas (or any others). For mentors who have already registered their interest, I will be in touch over the next few days to confirm their participation. This might take a little while because I need to match mentors with mentorees (not sure if that is a real word)! So please bear with me.
Even if you do not wish to participate in the speed mentoring please do feel free to attend this Meetup as it will be a very interesting evening with some great networking opportunities.
Anybody wishing to attend the event should reply via our webpage so I can keep track of numbers. There is a nominal charge of £10.00 to attend which will be refunded to participating mentors.
I look forward to hearing from you and please feel to contact me with any questions. Btw, I am on a business trip in China right now so there might be a time lag before you receive a reply.
