    Mentor not Minotaur

As marketing and BD professionals in the professional service sector, we can all appreciate the daily challenges that we face. Working in a highly charged and ever changing environment there are times that we may feel we are working with Minotaurs as we find ourselves in situations which test our resolve, result in us not knowing which way to turn and sometimes seeking solace in a crafty glass of vino - yet rarely do we seek support from anyone outside of our organisation. Over the years, many professionals have convinced themselves that Mentors are for new entrants and have to be from inside our respective organisations, yet if you look at the dictionary definition of Mentor: 'an experienced and trusted advisor’ we would all occasionally benefit from an unbiased independent sounding board.

If you would like to receive regular invites to events, please register online.

Benefits of corporate membership are:
