ELEVATE is a free mentorship programme that has been designed with a specific goal in mind – to support and inspire ambitious people within the events industry.  It’s a 6 month rolling programme connecting Mentors and Mentees to make this industry even better.

OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE:

to inspire

Connecting individuals and helping them realise their potential through sharing, collaboration, connection and supported growth.   

TO INFORM

Sharing first hand experiences and insights with participants, whilst understanding the key challenges they face. The information obtained will create a report which will be shared with the industry featuring current trends, challenges and key areas for growth and improvement.

TO EMPOWER

The people that make this industry great - you.  Giving you the contacts, tools, skills and support to grow and develop your career. 

Simply put, it's for everyone.

 

If you're just starting out or an account director, a budding production assistant, a venue manager or the next creative genius – we believe that you should be given the support to realise your ambitions.  

If you’re committed to developing your network, your talent and yourself – this programme is for you. If you’re passionate about contributing to the industry, sharing your passion, knowledge and wisdom – we’re looking for you too!

Why? Because we believe this industry is the most exciting one to work in and that ambitious talented people make it better and we want to support as many of you as possible.

 

We're glad you asked...

 

We like simple. 

All you need to do is complete the application questionnaire and then sit back and let us do the hard work.

Once you have applied we will match a mentor with a mentee.  We’ll send an initial introduction email and then it's up to the mentee to set up a time to meet with their mentor.  

We recommend that you set up an initial one-hour meeting to get to know each other and see if you connect and feel the relationship will be mutually beneficial. 

If you click and you feel you can work together, the mentoring period will last six months, that’s an hour every month, or 6 hours in total in whatever way you both decide to use them.

You decide the schedule and the logistics – we match you and support you but the magic is between the mentor and mentee.

 

Right now... 

 

Season two of ELEVATE is now live.  That means we've spent the summer receiving applications, digesting them and pairing people to start their mentoring journey.  

If you'd like to find out when we launch Season Three or when we host ELEVATE Live events you can do that by completing the 'first to know' form located here.

 

 

 

Who are they?

 

The mentors are CEO's, entrepreneurs, creative directors, venue managers, freelancers, client managers, brand experience directors, suppliers and creative designers from the likes of Innocent, Jack Morton, Sony, Amplify, Wentworth Collective, Neverland, Geometry, L'Oreal, Pretty Green, Clive, Sequoia Partnership, Seen, EVENT Magazine, Eight PR and ILEA.  

They have a wealth of experience and have been in the industry for over 500 years between them (OK, so we might have made that last bit up).

The long and short of it is, we've recruited the best of the best from across the industry to join us and share their wisdom, knowledge and expertise.

And the list of mentors is growing all the time.

 

 

We love you're a keen bean
