BUSINESS MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

We welcome SACC & YP members to be part of this rewarding program as mentors or mentees. The program connects generations of more senior business managers with young professionals within the Swedish-Australian business community.
SACC and YP Committees manage the matching process and help pairs establish a successful mentoring relationship throughout the program. Mentors and mentees meet for one-to-one mentoring sessions in person or online about 6-10 times during the 12-month program. During the program period, there will be check in events including a mid year evaluation with the opportunity for mentees and mentors to reflect and highlight any changes they wish to make.
- To join as a mentee or mentor, you must be a member of SACC or YP
- Both mentees and mentors must be willing to attend the program launch and are expected to meet a minimum of 6-10 times in person or online during the 12-month program
THE APPLICATION AND MATCHING PROCESS
Mentees and mentors will be asked to complete a short application form detailing areas of interest and expectations. Our selection process is designed to properly align our mentors and mentees to ensure a positive experience for both individuals.
We are looking for mentors with business management and leadership experience from large to small and medium-sized companies, with expertise in different areas such as management, finance, fin-tech, technology, law, marketing and communication. Becoming a mentor can be rewarding and comes with benefits such as; broadening your horizons and challenge your perspectives, enhancing your leadership skills and help shape the leaders of tomorrow. Mentors will also have the opportunity to gain intrinsic rewards for meaningful work.
Here is what a mentee said about last years program:
“I gained a whole lot from the relationship with my mentor! Not only did my mentor help guiding me in my career path, but also acted as a coach and helped me grow on an individual level as well as on a professional. My mentor’s personality, extensive work experience and knowledge was exactly what I needed in a mentor at that point in time. It was a great match. My main goal with the mentorship program was to establish the next steps in my career path, which we did. Not only did I enjoy the progress we made from our monthly meetings which helped me in my career, but I also really enjoyed speaking with my mentor about his life journey. I would definitely recommend the program to others.”
Feedback from one of our mentors:
”Being a Mentor gave me a great sense of “value”. I was able to share my business and life experience gained from various positions during a lifelong career and apply this to the challenges of the Mentee. I think we achieved a lot together by identifying the key areas and specific actions which would support my Mentee’s development. I would absolutely recommend this program and will be partaking in the upcoming program.”
