Online Speed Mentoring



Real Estate Balance and Property Week are hosting an online speed mentoring event for members on 28 May at 4-5pm.

Taking place on Zoom on Thursday 28 May 2020 from 4pm to 5pm, Real Estate Balance and Property Week's online speed mentoring event is designed to offer real estate professionals from our corporate membership at an earlier stage in their career the opportunity to meet a senior industry leader for a confidential conversation around their career aspirations and development, passing on on valuable skills, knowledge and insights.

The sessions will run simultaneously, each with one mentor and three or four mentees to include a mix of genders but we particularly encourage junior women to apply.

We are delighted to announce the following have agreed to be mentors:

Amanda Clack, Head of Strategic Advisory, CBRE Ltd
Ayesha Ofori, Founder & CEO of PropElle Network
Brian Bickell, CEO, Shaftesbury
Ciaran Bird, CEO UK & Ireland, CBRE Ltd
David Sleath, Chief Executive, SEGRO
Fran Giltinan, Customer Experience Senior Director, Foxtons
Jess Tomlinson, Head of Real Estate London, Barclays Corporate Banking
Liz Peace, Chair, Real Estate Balance
Michela Hancock, Managing Director, Greystar
Steven Skinner, UK CEO, HB Reavis
Victoria Quinlan, Managing Director - Investment Management, Lendlease

After half an hour, all the groups will join together in a webinar. There will be short presentations from Property Week and Real Estate Balance, followed by an opportunity to hear from some of the mentors and the mentees about their experience.

As we can only accommodate approximately 40 mentees we will have to limit the number from each corporate member. On confirmation of a place, mentees will be provided with some guidance notes and we will expect advance preparation to ensure that both the mentees and mentors get the most benefit from the 30 minute session. 

We believe the event will be highly rewarding for both mentees and mentors. At a time when a significant percentage of the industry is on furlough – an issue particularly affecting more junior team members – we believe this is a positive opportunity to support the property industry’s talent pipeline.

Property Week will be promoting the event to its subscribers and will publish a write up in the magazine. However, mentees will only be accepted from our corporate membership.
