What is speed mentoring?
Modeled after speed dating, speed mentoring is a quick one-time meeting or discussion that enables an individual to learn and seek guidance from a more experienced person who can pass on relevant knowledge and experience.
The purpose of speed mentoring is to provide a valuable learning opportunity for individuals that are seeking a boost in their career while requiring a limited commitment of time from a more experienced mentor.
While mentors and mentees can mutually decide to meet again after their speed mentoring session, the commitment is to participate only in the initial meeting.
