Mentoring Professionals



Back by popular demand following the success of the MPC previously held at King's College London and the University of Manchester, the Mentoring Professionals Conference is an exclusive, two-day conference that brings together online and offline mentoring professionals from across the UK and Europe.

This year the Mentoring Professionals Conference was held at the stunning Grade II listed Georgian mansion, Grove House at the University of Roehampton in London. Bringing together careers and alumni relations professionals from 38 institutions including 2 business schools, this unique event provided an ideal base for sharing best practices and inspiration, leaving many feeling energised and ready to kickstart and enhance their mentoring schemes with new strategies. Expert speakers shared the secrets to their success and everyone had the opportunity to ask questions and contribute within open discussions. The presentations were stimulating, eye-opening and interactive in order to provide information, advice and ideas that would be most relevant to delegates.

The conference 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 launching, managing and upscaling different mentoring schemes, resource planning, mentor matching, student/mentee engagement, international alumni mentors, institutional engagement, marketing and toxicity in mentoring.

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 next MPC or to ensure you are part of next year's invitation list, please get in touch with Aluminati.

The programme was great and all of the talks were interesting and informative. It was well organised with clear instructions. Everyone was friendly and I felt very welcome. I am excited for the next one.

What delegates like about MPC

  • Interactive talks and networking.

  • Great networking opportunity and a chance to share best practice.

  • It was a really good and interesting programme. Some useful ideas sharing from colleagues which I am sure we will be implementing. Hope that there will be another one next year.

  • Excellent opportunity for me, as a new mentoring professional, to learn about mentoring and the different forms it takes in other institutions.

  • Great mix of people, well structured and organised and good topics covered.

  • There was a great diversity of topics, very friendly delegates and plenty of networking opportunities. The conference organisers were fantastically communicative.

  • The networking opportunities and the different experiences and point of views shared.

  • 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.
