Calling all business and professional women, this is your chance to access and explore the power of Mentoring. Wednesday 14thSeptember 5:30pm – 6:45pm at the Geelong Yacht Club.
We are running a Spring Evening Mentoring Session over a glass of wine
Business in Heels is supported by the female leaders of Geelong.
Are you a woman in business feeling confused, stuck or unsure of your future.?
Feeling overwhelmed in business?
Or are you an ambitious professional wanting to overcome roadblocks or explore new directions to succeed?
Mentoring is proven to fast-track results
Today 50% of women get no mentoring and yet we know it makes a difference and here are just a few of the facts.
- Mentees are promoted 5 times more often than those without mentors (Source)
- The UPS store in the US conducted research on mentoring in 2013 and found that small businesses who receive mentoring significantly increase their chances of surviving past those first five years. Their data showed a 70% survival rate, which was double the rate of those who didn’t receive mentoring support.
Come along for an hour and be paired with an experienced mentor. Have a coffee and a chat. This is a mentoring taster. You will be able to share your challenges and dreams and in return you will receive a different perspective that may open you up to new possibilities.
This is what our attendees think:-
If you think you don’t need a mentor – you probably do! We all are great at providing advice/coaching others but don’t take heed of it ourselves – having that mirror reflected back is really good to just take a moment and reflect on where you are going and what it is you want to achieve. My mentor did exactly that for me which I appreciated! Sharon
It was a great experience to be able to express concerns and intentions for the business and have an outsiders input without bias. No matter how experienced you are in business, the mentoring is worthwhile to help you keep in check. Helen Vertoudakis
Would love to attend again! it was a very efficient use of an early morning 🙂 Angela Smith is wonderful and gave a lot to the discussion. Eileen Catindig
The cost is $20 for members and $25 for non members including a glass of wine you do need to register so we can be sure we have the right number of mentors & mentees.
