How does Pay It Forward work?
In advance of each monthly Power Business Breakfasts Forward Ladies will publicise any Pay It Forward speaker and mentoring sessions that will be taking place at forthcoming business breakfasts.
The format for the mentoring will be the same each time: a Forward Ladies National Women in Business Regional or National winner will give a 10-15 minute presentation on their own business journey and will then participate in a brief Q&A session at the end of the session. Following this the winner will then make herself available for a sit down, ten minute one-to-one speed mentoring session with Forward Ladies’ members who have pre-booked their mentoring slots. Each relevant business breakfast will offer a maximum of six speed mentoring slots and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis to members.
Forward Ladies is not providing supervision of the mentoring sessions or making any assurances or representations as to the quality of the mentoring provided. Mentors are offering to talk and then provide a maximum of 6 one-to-one speed mentoring sessions without making a charge for their time and no contract exists between the mentor and the mentee, nor does any contract exist between Forward Ladies and the mentor or Forward Ladies and the mentee.
Mentoring can be hugely beneficial to both mentors and mentees. If this is the first time that you have either been a mentor or a mentee then build on the experience and consider whether it is something you would like to do again. If both mentor and mentee are happy to continue the conversation, exchange business cards and agree to meet up again in the future – it could be the start of a great business relationship that benefits both of you!
