Elevate mentoring programme is looking for its third intake for new mentees and mentors.
So far the scheme has created more than 120 mentoring pairs with people from across the events industry.
The programme, created by Max Fellows, director of client services at MCI Experience, and Mel Noakes, head of B2B events and sponsorship at Santander UK, has developed into one of the most successful mentoring programmes in the industry.
"We know this sort of mentoring scheme is something the industry is crying out for," said Noakes.
"We conduct a survey each year and over the last two seasons we've seen 69% of our mentees don't feel they've been provided with adequate training or personal development in order to fulfil their current role.
"When asked what their biggest challenge is when it comes to career development, lack of support was right at the top of the list. We're proud Elevate is looking to tackle these issues."
The next intake will be capped at 50, with very senior people giving their time and help. Now the team are also looking for industry professionals at a mid and more junior level and creatives at all levels to get involved.
Mentee Theo Gentilli, founder of Warm Street said: "By creating a growth plan with our mentor, our business’s revenue has increased by 300% over the last two years."
Mentor Jez Paxman, creative strategy director, Live Union said: "Elevate deserves your support. So much thought has gone into creating a mentoring programme that works for both parties."
The Elevate participants include L’Oreal, Innocent, Sony, Amplify, Wonder, Sledge, Geometry Global, Innovision and Playstation Warm Street and Live Union to name just a few.
