Member Mentoring with Lucille Halloran

Free Event for Personal Members

Member Events - 31 Jul 2017

Within our membership ranks there exists a tremendous amount of knowledge and wisdom that we now make available to you through an informal, small group mentoring session. This is an opportunity available exclusively to Personal members.

The mentoring session below provided a rare opportunity to sit down with a former Commonwealth Secretary. To maintain a level of personal engagement,  numbers for these sessions are capped. Any Personal member, regardless of career stage is invited to participate.

About Mentoring

Mentoring is an effective process for the transfer of professional skills and benefits mentees through support for skills and knowledge development. It is designed to provide an additional layer of career and professional development.

It is important to understand that mentoring is one component of a professional development plan. It is focused on career and professional development conversations. It complements skill development training and is not a substitute for emotional support systems such as counselling.

By attending mentees were provided the opportunity to:

  • Develop personal skills and self-confidence.
  • Gain a broader understanding of the public sector and the role of IPAA
  • Develop relationships with more senior colleagues to explore career and professional pathways in a supportive, informal environment.
