Hear from industry experts in this two-way panel discussion.
Whether you’re running a business, breaking into an industry or getting a side hustle off the ground, you’ll probably hear the same advice: get yourself a mentor. But do you need a mentor or a coach? Is there a difference? How do you find one? Do you need to pay them? Hospitality co-working space Worksmith aims to answer these questions at its next community talk.
The night will run as a two-way panel discussion where attendees are encouraged to ask questions. The panel is made up of industry professionals who have all given and received mentorship in their careers. You’ll hear from Bek Malherbe, CEO and founder of business and recruitment consultancy Silent Partner, Kate Langford CEO at The Big Group, a hospo company; and Sebastian Pasinetti, Head of Partnerships at Kelly’s Cause, a mental health organisation for hospitality people. Food journalist and cook Dani Valent will host proceedings.
The host and panellists will cover way to identify and approach mentorship opportunities (as well as how to become one yourself), drawing on their experiences in different industries. There’ll be snacks from Mediterranean restaurant Oko, as well as drinks from Home Grown and Stomping Ground. You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and mingle with other attendees – you might even find yourself a mentor.
Worksmith’s next community talk is at Music Market, Collingwood Yards, Unit 2/35 Johnston St, Collingwood from 6pm to 8.30pm, Tuesday February 28. Tickets and more information are available here.
