Mentoring Circle: The Importance of Networking and How to Network

Monday, 08 March 2021
17:30 - 18:30 GMT
Included in the Rising Festival Ticket

This will be an interactive session which is facilitated by a mentor who was previously the first CEO of Cambridge Wireless, which is a premier networking organisation in the UK. Participants will get an opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions on the following key points:

  • Why should we network
  • Who do we network with
  • How do we network
  • How to network during the pandemic

What are Mentoring Circles?

The Rising Network Mentoring Circles offer a supportive peer to peer learning environment lead by mentors in each circle. Each mentoring circle will have a set theme so that mentees can come armed with questions to seek advice from both mentors and peers to collectively explore and discuss the issue – while being mentored and guided by someone who has knowledge and experience in personally overcoming that problem: the mentor.

How they work?

Each Mentor will be in their own virtual room and we will have parallel mentoring circles running at the same time. Pick the circle you want to join and make sure you’re not late as each session will start with a short talk by each Mentor followed by informal group mentoring and discussions.
