New Zealand taps talent with BE Mentored

BUSINESS Events Industry Aotearoa has launched its 11th annual BE Mentored programme with a mission to develop emerging talent in the industry.

The eight-month programme will foster 19 mentor-mentee pairings, with experienced mentors from previous years returning in 2024.

This year, for the first time, the New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) is sponsoring the programme.

NZICC General Manager, Prue Daly said: “As a team, NZICC is passionate about championing emerging talent, and this represents an opportunity for us to give back to the business events’ community by supporting our next generation of leaders.”

 BEIA Chief Executive Lisa Hopkins said development of new talent was crucial to boosting the sector’s growth.

 “Over the past decade we have seen the positive impact BE Mentored has had for mentees on developing their careers, building valuable relationships and broadening their experience within the business events industry.

 “Our mentees receive a personal support system to help both professionally and personally, while our mentors have the chance to share and demonstrate their knowledge, experience and personal skills.”
