MEET, SHARE AND GROW TOGETHER!
The secret of any strong community?… people! Our ECM community is powered by members and partners working to not only stand stronger together, but also run faster and smarter alongside each other. As part of our series Power of Community, we put focus on our members – our community heroes, who contribute their valuable time, experiences and resources to power the community and through that provide value and inspiration to us all.
We celebrate today a rather new initiative born out of an idea Bettina Reventlow-Mourier shared with us last spring, and that came to life a few months after: the ECM Mentor Programme!
The ECM Mentor Programme started last September and is a programme for new Meetings Industry professionals. The Mentees, who have 6 to 18 months of experience, are matched with a more experienced professional based on a set of criteria. For this first edition, we have more than 60 Mentors and Mentees, who regularly meet throughout this 1-year programme to discuss any challenge the Mentee meets and share their experience to help each other grow, both professionally and personally.
Learn how this programme works, why we thought ECM was the right place for this initiative and what to expect in the future!
Meet the person who came up with the idea: Bettina Reventlow-Mourier, Deputy Convention Director at Wonderful Copenhagen, and listen to her talk about the amazing opportunity that is the ECM Mentor Programme for the Meetings Industry professionals!
