Mentoring Exchange
“The Nordic Chamber launches a new service for members:

Mentoring Exchange“

Many mentoring programs in companies are limited to speaking to senior members of your current company. Often there is too little time or structure in these programs to provide any real value. The mentoring exchange is a new platform within the Nordic Chamber of Commerce, offering member companies to connect mentors with mentees from different companies and different industries. By matching the needs of mentees with the expertise of senior employees of our member companies, the Mentoring Exchange is a great platform for sharing experiences and knowledge across different industries that the mentees would otherwise not be exposed to.

Do you want to know how other industries handle customer service, or find out how other companies work with digital marketing? Do you want to share your great experience in implementing Lean Management in a production facility? The time is now!

The Mentoring Exchange is an excellent opportunity for senior members of our Chamber to give something back to other persons within our community – for free! It is also a rare opportunity for employees of companies in the Nordic chamber to tap into the experience of not only their own colleagues, but from a wide range of people operating in different industries.
 

The mentees and mentors follow a strict set of rules of engagement  Rules of engagement and are also vetted to meet the requirements Requirement for MENTEE and Requirement for MENTOR


If you are interested in knowing more about this service or request APPLICATION FORM, please contact
the Chamber at info@nordicchamber.cz or by phone: 774 123 370.

_____________________________

Martin, you joined the Chamber in summer 2015, what was your expectation?

Yes, I joined the Chamber right after my graduation in September 2015.
To be honest, at the beginning I didn’t know what to expect, but after few weeks with Lea (Executive Director), I realized that it will not be like part time jobs during the University. Suddenly I started to have certain expectations – getting new contacts, getting insight of the company management, improving my language skills.
