YSPN believes that it is imperative for its members to actively seek mentors and, where possible, act as mentees.
To this end, we have launched a special series on mentoring where this crucial success tool will be discussed, deliberated and presented in accordance with industry specific focuses. We aim for this to also provide a platform for potential mentors and mentees to connect.
On May 22 2014, the launch of the first mentoring series event focusing on the health and allied health industries was held in Sydney. With over 50 attendees at the event, four eminent keynote speakers, Amarjit Anand (principal audiologist Northern Territory), Dr Jaswinder Samra (consultant general surgeon), Dr Gurdial Singh (anaesthetist) and Dr Narinder Singh (head of ENT Westmead Private Hospital) discussed and shared their nuggets of wisdom on the nature and necessity of mentoring relationships in the industry.
The next event in the series will focus on the professional services industry and is planned for the second half of 2014.YSPN is committed to exploring further options such as a formal mentoring program to ensure that mentoring becomes a valued stepping stone in its members’ career development journey.
