MEPRA’s Mentoring Programme matches experienced senior communication professionals with communication practitioners in the Middle East in the early stages of their career for a period of 12 months.
The programme is designed to help communication professionals in their career development by connecting Mentees with an experienced professional to provide a new perspective, insights ideas and become a sounding board for any professional growth. Discussions could cover industry issues, career progression, upskilling advice, and/or any other topic as mutually agreed by the mentor and the mentee at the beginning of the programme.
The Mentor & Mentee relationship can be virtual, so no matter where you are based in the Middle East, you will have the ability to join the programme if you are a MEPRA Member.
