Following the success of the pilot CIC 2050 Group Speed Mentoring event, we would like to invite you to be a mentee at the next event which is kindly being hosted by Argent LLP on the evening of the 28 August 2014 from 6pm – 8.30pm at their offices in King’s Cross, central London.
Speed Mentoring is a light-hearted approach to mentoring and a bit like speed dating! It is a managed event where you will spend 15 minutes with three separate industry experts. During this time you will have the opportunity to talk to your mentor about a challenge, an issue or seek advice about your career path. It provides an opportunity to be with well regarded and well respected professionals and to gain knowledge from a cross-sector group of industry leaders. There will also be an opportunity to network after the mentoring sessions.
The CIC 2050 Group is made up of young professionals who are keen to connect with the different generations in our industry, in order to facilitate the transfer of knowledge, and to develop and influence the construction industry of the future.
The aim of the event is to provide professionals, in the early stages of their career with an opportunity to learn from those who have considerable experience, which they are keen to share.
The objectives are:
- To encourage the transfer of knowledge from generation to generation.
- To provide the opportunity for those in the early stages of their careers with access to leading experts.
- To promote longer term mentoring.

As one mentee said last time: “I’ve not done anything like this before, but it was a really fantastic event …. It gets you thinking about your career and what you might do next. Really flexible in terms of what questions you might ask and where the conversation might go.”
