The LPEA invites its members to register in this exclusive mentoring session by Myles Downey. This mentoring workshop is organised in the context of LPEA’s PE4W initiative to support women in developing leadership skills in the Private Equity sector.
The Programme Purpose is to ensure that participants get what they need from being mentored. This will be achieved by:
– Making sure that there is a clear understanding of what mentoring is and of what can be achieved through mentoring;
– Understanding that there are different kinds of mentors (e.g. sponsors through to coaches) and which kind of relationship is best for the individual;
– Understanding what the core approaches and skills are and practising them;
– Beginning to your own personal ‘mentoring journey’ by better understanding more about your unique identity and thinking about your goals and objectives;
As all other PE4W initiatives, this session is open to both men and women professionals members of the LPEA. Limited seating capacity.
Cost of participation: €85 (registration form below)
