Description

How do you make the most of a mentorship in order to help you grow your business - and yourself?

This panel discussion will centre on the important relationship between a mentor and mentee as entrepreneurs from the Rare Birds community share their own experiences and how these interactions have impacted their personal and professional lives. Mentoring is a core pillar of Rare Birds' mission and through our mentoring platform, entrepreneurs at all stages of business are able to find a mentor or become a mentoree. Rare Birds Founder Jo Burston and local Ambassador Lisa Burling will lead the discussion while also exploring the role mentoring has played in their own personal and professional development.
