"The information was pitched at the right level for someone with limited stats knowledge so that I could understand the theory as well as the application"

The DMA's Mentoring Scheme aims to nurture young marketing talent, by building confidence, developing skills and helping to achieve career aspirations.
It's important to hear a trusted and neutral voice outside the business that you work in, someone who just has your interests at heart and who can give you another perspective. Many of today's senior industry figures had mentors in their early careers and this scheme provides an opportunity to give back, and maybe even learn a few things from our talented young marketers.
We run three or four events a year for IDM and DMA members to match mentors and mentees in London, Bristol, Edinburgh and Manchester.
The events start with a short briefing about expectations and the role of a mentor, followed by a matching session where mentors and mentees meet briefly in short timed meetings, rotating to meet everyone in the group. The session ends with drinks and more informal conversations. We match mentoring pairs based on comments and preferences given in after the event.
To register for this event or to find out more information, please email Jessica Reilly.
