Real Estate Balance’s NextGen Committee are delighted to announce the next in our series of online speed mentoring events.
Hosted by corporate member, Hines, and taking place via Zoom, the event is designed to offer real estate professionals from our member organisations at an earlier stage in their career the opportunity to meet a senior industry leader and talk to them about their career, gaining skills, knowledge and insights for their own career aspirations and development.
We are delighted to announce the following have agreed to be mentors:
All participants will join a Zoom meeting and will go straight into their ‘breakout rooms’ for the mentoring sessions. 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 and those from underrepresented groups in our industry to apply.
On confirmation of a place, mentors and 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 55 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 or has been 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.
Please RSVP to NextGen@realestatebalance.org by Friday 5th November 2021, giving your first and second choice of mentor. Places are limited and will be shared across our membership on a first come, first served basis. If you have any questions about the event, please email NextGen@realestatebalance.org.
