Do you have a mentor? Someone who encourages and guides you on your professional journey? Perhaps you have wondered how this type of arrangement works. How would you go about finding the right person and knowing when and how to ask for help? Or perhaps you have hard-won experience or you would like to share with someone starting out and have would like to know more about how you could present yourself as a resource.

Cyndi Prince and Jula Sampson have shared a mentor/mentee relationship. They’re joining us to share their story and explain how they made the most of their connection. Cyndi and Jula will explain how mentoring works, demonstrate its benefits and inspire you to implement it for yourself.
