The Mentoring Professionals Conference is an exclusive, invitation only, one-day conference that brings together online and offline mentoring professionals from across the country. Expert speakers will share the secrets to their success and everyone will have the opportunity to ask questions and contribute within an open guided discussion session where delegates set the agenda.
Whether you are just starting out or looking to supercharge your online or offline mentoring programme, join us at the beautiful King’s College Strand campus, for a stimulating day of knowledge sharing. You may even meet your own professional mentor!
This year, this event is free to attend.
