    The NZIFST Auckland Branch committee recognised the need to connect their younger members with the more senior members from our Institute, so organised their first speed mentoring event in 2020.  The feedback from this event was overwhelmingly positive, so added this event into their fixtures as an annual event.


    The evenings format will include a number of one-on-one discussions between our senior members (mentors) and junior members (mentees), each typically of 5-6 minutes duration.  While we have described this event as “Speed Mentoring” our aim is to facilitate contacts within the Auckland branch and increase the awareness to our younger members, of the wealth of experience that resides within our industry, particularly from our Fellows and long standing senior members.
