CINZ announces 2018 Mentorship Programme

CINZ announces 2018 Mentorship Programme
February 14, 2018

Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) have launched their 2018 Mentorship Programme, looking to expand the initiative which has been running over five years..

CINZ Mentorship Programme a growing success over five years

Open to all CINZ members from the many sectors it represents, CINZ Chief Executive Sue Sullivan sees that the Mentorship Programme has established itself as success story for New Zealand’s growing business events industry.

Sullivan explains “our mentors are experienced business event professionals who are paired with mentees ready to expand their careers.

“Together they grow and learn, gaining individual guidance and advice throughout the year.”

Tamsin Jenkins, Business Development Manager at Crowne Plaza Auckland, was a mentee in 2017. Her goal was to establish a learning relationship with someone outside her workplace to speak openly and honestly about her work experiences, and to take away valuable advice to help her career progression. She also wanted to expand her network of peers in the industry.

Jenkins advises “I achieved both these objectives and more.

“In my mentor I had a great trusted advisor who provided me with outside confidence as I embarked on the next step in my career. His experience was so relevant to my new role and he was a great sounding board as I worked through the challenges of learning my new position.

“This was a fantastic opportunity to meet some other people at a similar point in their career in the industry who you might not otherwise come across. Building a network is so much easier with some familiar faces along the way.”

For mentor Leigh Lewis, National Director of Sales for Naumi Hotels, mentoring is a win-win for both mentor and mentee.

Lewis states “the programme works because it’s simple, easy to follow and rewarding. Mentors become a go-to for advice and someone to help them navigate their chosen industry.

“As a mentor I learnt about myself, my style, weaknesses and strengths, all in a safe and secure environment. Any time spent with a mentee is time saved in experience gained.”

CINZ has again contracted the services of The New Zealand Coaching and Mentoring Centre (NZCMC) to support the seven-month programme with training and consultancy services.

Applications close on 22nd February and mentor and mentee pairings will be finalised in March. The first training session is on 18th April in Auckland.

From April through to October mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet fortnightly for their mentoring sessions.
