The programme, created by Courtney Baisch, talent and communications manager at Innovision, Max Fellows, head of client services at Clive and Mel Noakes former Sony Mobile head of experiential has developed into one of the biggest most successful mentoring programmes in the industry. The first season saw participants from L’Oreal, Innocent, Clive, Amplify, Wonder, Sledge, Geometry Global, PrettyGreen, Neverland, Innovision and Santander to name just a few.

Over the last six months ELEVATE saw over 90 paired mentors and mentees of varying levels from all over the events industry. A new feature for the second season which enables the opportunity for one off, one hour, mentoring sessions.

Mentee Kelly Stewart, event ops manager from Be Vivid said: "It was invaluable networking and insight for me, my mentor was wonderful and we got on straight away, formalising this kind of relationship was excellent. This type of scheme can benefit everyone as it did me."

Mentor Andrew Dougan, head of experiential and growth from Geometry Global added: "I have been genuinely fortunate to learn and gain invaluable experience from some of the best in the industry - it has led to my own career success and Elevate has enabled me to pay it forward and back. There is no better feeling than knowing you are helping and inspiring colleagues and peers to drive our incredible industry forward."

Registrations will remain open until 18th August, with the aim of having all partnerships announced by the first week in September.
