Mentoring Professionals



Back by popular demand after the success of the MPC 2015, the Mentoring Professionals Conference is an exclusive, two-day conference that brings together online and offline mentoring professionals from across the country.

This year the Mentoring Professionals Conference was held at the King's College London Strand campus, with the beautiful backdrop of Somerset House. Bringing together careers and alumni relations professionals from 20 institutions, including 3 business schools, this unique event provided an ideal base for sharing best practices and inspiration, leaving many feeling energised and ready to kick start and enhance their mentoring schemes with new strategies. The presentations were stimulating and eye-opening, and the interactive guided discussion enabled everyone to contribute useful ideas and relevant, high quality information.

The day was a wonderful success with great feedback, with many relishing the opportunity to connect and learn from others at different stages of running mentoring programmes, finding out what works for them, and to share advice on a range of topics from strengthening business cases, institutional engagement, branding, marketing, etc.

The MPC whetted many an appetite and has left you wanting more, so we look forward to seeing you again next year. To be involved as a host or speaker at the MPC 2016 or to ensure you are part of next year's invitation list, please get in touch with Aluminati.

This was a well organised and valuable event - thank you! It was great to have a wide variety of institutions represented, with a varying degree of maturity in mentoring programmes with which to compare. Sharing best practice from the likes of Manchester and Sheffield was fascinating to learn from. There were valuable discussions on the table and at the dinner and post drinks; having time away from a structured conference to 'network' and continue discussions was most worthwhile.

liked about MPC 2015

  • I found the event to be absolutely brilliant. The amount of learning achieved during the day; the excellent organisation; getting to look at future developments; speaking to people also working in small teams or on the same CRM as us.

  • The ability to hear from both alumni teams and careers teams and those who are just starting with mentoring and those who have been doing it for a while across different types of institutions.

  • The chance to meet others facing the same challenges as us.

  • A great way to come up with ideas of things we haven't yet considered.

  • The opportunity to hear from other Universities about mentoring and what has worked for them.

  • My first mentoring event, so the information available was of great value.

  • The group that attended contributed so much relevant information.
