Being Your Own Boss: Speed Mentoring

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Share your challenges, exchange ideas and explore different perspectives at a WOW speed-mentoring session for those who work for themselves.

Who is it for?
This session is aimed at women who are interested in becoming or already are their own bosses. You might be a freelancer looking to discuss shared challenges or somebody exploring turning your passion into your profession.

Mentors in this session come from a wide range of fields but all have had experience of starting their own enterprises or working for themselves.

What happens?
You have three 15-minute sessions to talk to three different mentors in an area you choose to discuss – you are in charge of the discussion. All of our mentors are leaders in their field who are easy to talk to and eager to work with you. We don't match up mentors or mentees, but instead we leave connections to occur naturally on the day.
