Speed Mentoring event new [Full] 14:00 - 15:00 CPMO: MS Teams

Have you ever wished you could get 10 minutes with a senior colleague to ask their advice on how they would handle something? Have you ever wondered how others approach challenging problems? This is your opportunity to ask. We are bringing together a panel of very experienced colleagues from across the University for a special speed mentoring session so that they can offer you their support and advice.

Speed mentoring offers you the opportunity for a series of short, focused conversations about a specific question or issue you are struggling with. You will rotate around four different mentors, spending around 10 minutes with each, to gain different perspectives on an issue you are seeking to resolve or a project you are trying to progress.

"I liked that there were a diverse background of university staff involved in the session, and all of the mentors were really engaged and enthusiastic. I felt that I could be honest about some of my experiences in the University, good and bad. All the mentors I spoke to acted as a good sound board for the issues that I wanted to discuss and they have given me some excellent advice and ideas."

"The fact that we saw 4 different mentees was brilliant - we gained different perspectives, saw different mentoring types and were also introduced to people and roles we may not have known about."

Mentors:

• Zara Sheldrake - Business Architect, University Information Services.

• Bukky Gray - TM and HR Manager, University Development and Alumni Relations.

• Holly Rowe - Head of Widening Participation, Cambridge Admission Office.

• Ros Alexander - Organisational Development Consultant, Human Resources Division.

• Kate Livingstone - Head of Digital Transformation, University Information Services.

• Steph Hall - Scientific Operations Manager, Wellcome Trust Medical Research.
