Gathering training event- Speed mentoring - 10 November 2015

Nov 10, 2015 – 7:00 pm

We’re delighted to announce a Speed Mentoring Gathering where you will get the chance, in small group sessions, to talk to and ask advice from some of the most successful, talented and fabulous women in our industry today.  

These sessions are always popular, highly valued and a great networking opportunity, we’ve decided to price this event at only £25 (including VAT) per person in order to attract newer entrants to our industry to come along. So whether you’re a graduate who has just started or have been at it for years, we have no doubt you’ll value what you hear and learn something new. Drinks and light snacks are included.

There’ll be around senior female 20 mentors - including Lindsey Clay, CEO of Thinkbox and President of WACL, Alison Lomax, Head of Brand Solutions at Google, Nina Jasinski, Chief Marketing Officer of Ogilvy & Mather Group and Vicki Maguire, Deputy Executive Creative Director at Grey London – to name just a few. We anticipate that each delegate will get to speak with at least 6 different mentors over the course of the evening, so the experience and advice will be rich and varied.

On the night, we’ll capture your contact details should you want the opportunity to have a 1-2-1 two hour mentoring session with a WACL woman over the course of the next year. Please note it won’t necessarily be one of the mentors who is there on the evening of the 10th, but we’ll do our best to match you with someone suitable from the wider group of WACL which is made up of 150 fabulous senior women in the communications industry. 

Further details are beneath and the booking form is attached – we expect this event to be hugely popular so do please be sure to book places quickly for women who you think would benefit from some first-class Speed Mentoring - whether that be yourself, other women within your organisation or indeed for friends outside your company.

Please note all funds raised from Gatherings go towards WACL’s Future Leaders Fund, a training bursary offered to women within the industry to help enhance their likelihood of getting to the top ranks of their organisations and being leaders within our industry.
