We are pleased to announce that our next Speed Mentoring event will take place on Tuesday 8 November kindly hosted by Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner.

During the course of the evening, mentees from our members’ talent pipeline will be able to have one-on-one conversations and seek career advice from senior mentors from the real estate industry. Our goal is for mentees to gain insights from the career experiences of the mentors and to assist them in building their networks and managing their own careers.


In a change to our previous application process, we are asking anyone who would like to be considered as a mentee to request a place by clicking the red button above. You will be asked to provide a statement on why you wish to be considered as a mentee and a short bio. 

Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, limited to two mentees per organisation in the first instance. Applications will close two weeks prior to the event at close of business on Tuesday, 25 October

If you experience any difficulty with requesting a place, please email events@realestateblance.org.
