CIPFA South East Speed Mentoring Event, 14 October 2022

Time: 18.00

Location: Finsbury Square, London

Attendance via invite only

**Update: please note that mentee places are almost full. If you find that there are no more spaces available, please check out our other events.**

Mentees:

Have you recently qualified or are you studying to become a qualified CIPFA member? Would you benefit from some face-to-face discussions with experienced members from across the profession?

Our Speed Mentoring events offer mentees an opportunity to meet with several more experienced/senior members who will offer their time and guidance on career and other professional matters.

We hope that you benefit immediately from the discussions that you’ll have at the event and there is no obligation to continue a mentoring relationship after. The mentors that you meet may however become part of your longer-term network and we encourage mentoring to continue at the convenience of both parties.

How do I sign up? To register interest please email mentoring@cipfasoutheast.org.uk and you will receive sign up details by over coming weeks.

Mentors:

If you are an experienced member (5 years plus post qualification) and would like to offer your time for this or a future speed mentoring event, please email mentoring@cipfasoutheast.org.uk
