Does anyone have any good suggestions on how or where to network, and to business leaders and successful people who might be willing to mentor ?
I have read a lot about the benefits of finding a good career mentor. Someone who can share their stories of their experiences, give guidance and advice, or even just in general casual meetings over coffee or drinks.
I am in my early 30's, and coming to Singapore, from a Finance education but now working in the Supply Chain Planning / Logistics field, keen to look for opportunities to learn and develop.
Any suggests on places or events which might be good for me to check out ?
What is it you think you want to learn? Are you looking at trying to learn the mechanics of doing a particular job? Like what a MBA might give you? Only maybe more hands on... like a CFO who shows you how to really read a set of financial statements to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the company being studied?louy wrote:Yes, Unfortunately I am getting old.
But not too old to learn. There is always someone with more experience and of a higher position I hope to learn from.
Maybe Mentor is not what I need. Maybe it is just better networking
Thank you for the kind words. I am currently mentoring 14 high school boys, all attending a school for those that could not make it in regular classes. Incredibly tough... these young men are filled with anger and have had a tough life already... and incredibly rewarding... to set but one young man on a new life is satisfying beyond description... about to start doing this in a second school.the lynx wrote:I assure you Strong Eagle is a very good mentor, in work and business sense
I learned a lot from his input in this forum.
