BE Mentored Programme

Since 2014, BEIA have been running the Mentorship Programme, a result of feedback from membership and conversations with the key industry personnel.

The programme offers the Mentees the opportunity to develop their careers, build valuable relationships and broaden their experience within our industry. Mentors get the benefit of working with their Mentees and find significant personal and professional growth.

About the programme

Mentoring is the way to tap into the existing knowledge, skills, and experience of leaders within our industry.

It can be defined as:

“The developmental partnership through which one person shares knowledge, skills, information and perspective to foster the personal and professional growth of someone else”.

There are endless possibilities for creating a rewarding and successful career within the Business Events industry, but the "what" & "how" is not always obvious. Skilled Mentors will get to know Mentees, understand strengths, share insights and experiences to help navigate a development plan and career path.
Participation in the BE Mentored Programme offers the unique opportunity to form strong and lasting relationships.

We would like to thank Tourism New Zealand for its support of the BE Mentored Programme.
