Feedbacks are very positive, absolutely beyond expectations, so the program will surely continue as a tradition in autumn. The three round-table discussion topics were the following:
- Corporate career
- Starting a new business
- Path finding opportunities
In addition to the roundtable discussions, mentors of each topic introduced themselves and answered questions. At the end of the program, anyone who interested had the opportunity to talk with mentors in private or in small groups and get to know what to expect from the “masters” in case of future co-operation. Several people – who asked specific problems about their business – have already received advices how to build their businesses.
Mentors absolutely agree that every young participant was very talented, they arrived with particularly good and viable business ideas which envisions exciting and meaningful future mentor – mentee co-operations. Meanwhile, young talents choose their mentors. Private interviews will be held in the next 1-2 weeks, when mentors will decide who to work together in the next six month. Counseling will be free of charge, and may go on for several years.
Application to the program for young adults is continues (apply here) and the number of mentors is also constantly expanding. It means that co-operation between new candidates and mentors can start already before the next conference in autumn.
