Welcome to Birmingham: Mentoring
The role of a Mentor is to encourage personal and professional development by sharing their knowledge, expertise and experience. The benefits of mentoring work both ways; being a mentor can help you to challenge yourself and gain knowledge outside of your every day career, and being mentored can provide you with a fresh perspective on the challenges we all face as we grow our careers. Most importantly, a life-long friendship can be developed.
For new professionals entering the city, this session, led by TAG Network Midlands, will introduce you to the world of mentoring. Find out more about what it takes to become a mentor, or what to expect if you are looking to be mentored. After the session you can continue to work with TAG Network to help you find the right mentor or mentee for you.
Over the last two years we have been privileged to welcome new talent into Birmingham city centre, many of which will have joined their new roles during the Covid-19 pandemic and as a result were likely working from home.
After speaking with a number of partners and businesses we realised something needed to be done to support and welcome new professionals in the city. This could be to learn new skills, understand the benefits of networking or to meet up with like-minded individuals to create a social network.
This is why we have launched Welcome to Birmingham, 15 events across a week to welcome you to the city, offering you an opportunity to learn new skills, see new places and meet new people.
