ourcambridge Speed Mentoring event new Thu 4 Mar 2021   10:15 [Places]

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 senior managers and leaders 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.’ ‘ 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.

‘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.’

Thursday 4th March 2021 Time: 10.15 – 11.30

Mentors:

  • Milly Bodfish – Interim Secretary of the School of Biological Sciences
  • Tyler Shore – ThinkLab Manager, Strategic Partnerships Office
  • Andrew Nightingale - Project Portfolio Manager, Centre for Digital Built Britain
  • Alex Pryce – Foundation Year Course Director, Bye-Fellow, Fitzwilliam College
  • Rachel Plunkett – Faculty Manager, Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics
  • Jeanne Estabel – Departmental Administrator, Department of Biochemistry

Please note you will be invited to meet four out of the six mentors listed. Due to the complexity of the scheduling, it is not possible to request particular mentors. You will be sent details of who you will be meeting and the times, in advance. If you foresee any particular difficulty, please email rebecca.shipley@admin.cam.ac.uk

Process Mapping and Analysis new Self-taught Booking not required

A short course explaining how we identify, map and analyse business processes at the University of Cambridge

This series of drop in sessions has been designed to support both mentees and mentors who are taking part in the ourcambridge self-match mentoring scheme. They are entirely optional and you can attend as many or as few as you would like. To ensure that everyone is able to contribute to the sessions we are limiting the number of places for each session to 20. Where sessions are specifically designed for either the mentees or the mentors, this will be made clear (if you are both, you are welcome to attend both). The sessions will be interactive and focus around key discussion topics. For some sessions, we may contact you and ask you to watch a short 5-10 minute film beforehand.
