Sign up to the INCCA speed mentoring session at Future Talks

Posted on Tue, 10/15/2019 - 12:55
Are you coming to the Future Talks 019 conference in Munich? If so, it is now possible to sign up to a fun and informal session planned during the lunch break on Tusday the 12th of November This will be the third session of its kind since the launch of the INCCA mentoring programme in November 2018.
What is speed mentoring?
The INCCA speed mentoring session is an opportunity for participants of the conference to meet with established professionals in the field. 10 volunteer mentors have kindly agreed to participate in this session in Munich and it is now possible to sign up for a meeting! 
The session is an opportunity to ask the mentor anything! You can talk about them, about you, or about the field in general. During this time, nobody will interrupt you, you will not have to pluck up the courage to introduce yourself, or worry about how to get out of an endless or waning conversation! After 10 minutes, a bell will ring, and you will say farewell and allow the next mentee to sit down.
