Our speed mentoring programme is an innovative ongoing series of events connecting senior real estate professionals with emerging talent. It offers real estate professionals at an earlier stage in their career the opportunity to meet a senior industry leader for a conversation around their career aspirations and development, helping them discover new skills, knowledge and gain valuable industry insights.
The transition from school or university to the workplace can be a baffling experience – making decisions and navigating the ins and outs of a new industry are challenges that even very supportive family members or peer networks are not always qualified to help with. Mentoring helps real estate professionals starting out in the industry, particularly those from underrepresented groups, gain independent careers advice from senior leaders and insiders, while nurturing a diverse talent pipeline and creating a more inclusive industry for tomorrow. We also hear from mentors that it can be a very rewarding experience and provides invaluable insight into the experiences of those entering the industry.
We have been running these events in London for the past six years and we are very excited to now be holding our first event in Manchester.
We asked our members with offices in Manchester to put forward senior real estate professionals as mentors for the event and we are delighted that we have a great cohort of mentors with a broad range of experience from the following organisations:
- Colliers International
- Cushman and Wakefield
- DAC Beachcroft
- DLA Piper
- Knight Frank
- Montagu Evans
- Schroder Real Estate Investment Limited
- TP Bennett
We are now seeking mentees from our member organisations in the region.
If you would like to be considered as mentee use the button above to request a place by Friday 5 May 2023. We ask mentees to provide a short bio and a statement about why they wish to be considered, which we make available to mentors once we have organised the mentoring pairings. Places are on a first come, first served basis, limited to two mentees from each organisation in the first instance and ensure mentors are not paired with mentees from their own organisation.
Registration will be from 6pm for a 6.30pm start. Formal proceedings will finish around 7.30pm and will be followed by networking drinks.
Resources covering various aspects of mentoring can be found on our Toolkit under Mentoring Matters.
