"Speed Mentoring

"Unique perspectives from a cross-section of industry executives”

On Wednesday, August 14th, from 6:00-8:00 PM, the Ascend NJ Chapter will be hosting a Speed Mentoring event at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Bridgewater, NJ. 

Experienced professionals/ leaders from multinational firms such as Johnson & Johnson, EY, Deloitte, KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Novartis have graciously agreed to participate as Mentors.

This is a great way to learn, network and look to form long-term relationships in a relaxed environment! 

Please feel free to invite your colleagues to attend to gain insights from mentors and to network with other Asian professionals in the NJ area. 

What is "Speed Mentoring”?

 

Speed Mentoring is an efficient, face-to-face professional networking model that enables participants to be mentored through one-on-one focused conversations lasting a few minutes. It’s a fun, fast way to ask questions of experienced professionals. 

Two to three participants are seated at tables with a Mentor. Each participant will spend 1 minute to introduce himself/herself and position their question to the Mentor.  The Mentor will have 3-5 minutes to answer the question and provide perspectives from their experiences.  After each participant has had their turn, either the participants or the Mentor will move to the next table.  The process repeats several times.

Once the "speed” part is over, there will be time for people to reconnect and talk in more detail, or network with other participants. 

It’s organized chaos – loud, energizing, and fun!

What do you need to do?

 

Refine your message – your 1 minute story.  One minute isn’t long, so rather than sharing your complete professional and personal history, pick a couple of key things and find an engaging way to describe them.  How can you project your unique experiences in less than 1 minute?  Focus on the important points, make it interesting and be enthusiastic.

 

We offer the following thoughts to help you plan your own networking story and your question:

  • Quick personal introduction: Where are you from?  Describe your workplace (s) if needed.
  • What do you enjoy about your work and what do you think would be the most interesting/helpful thing for your listener to know about your professional experiences? 
  • What are you hoping to learn from your mentor from a career planning or leadership development standpoint?
