TIME seeks more mentors
THE Travel Industry Mentor Experience has put out a call for mentors from across the country as it continues to expand its operations nationally.
Founded in 2009 by Penny Spencer of Spencer Travel Group, TIME has since seen 120 mentors provide career guidance to more than 200 proteges from the travel, tourism, hospitality and aviation sectors through its structured mentoring program.
“TIME’s influence is felt coast to coast, but we’re growing and need more fabulous mentors right across the country, in our capital cities and regional areas,” Spencer said.
“At the end of the day, ambition and aspiration aren’t exclusive to Australia’s east coast capitals.”
Spencer said there was a particular need for Adelaide- based mentors as the organisation prepared for the inaugural intake of South Australian mentees in Jul - but stressed that it was a national call-out for expertise.
She said mentors were a “veritable who’s who” of the finest senior executives in the industry, with the organisation seeking accomplished professionals with a generosity of spirit and an interest in shaping the future of Australia’s travel industry and its people.
The TIME program operates one on one within a framework to deliver agreed outcomes for each participant and typically runs for six months - for more info see travelindustrymentor.com.au.
MEANWHILE this month a lucky TD reader will have the opportunity to join the TIME program under the inaugural Travel Daily TIME Scholarship. The prize is valued at more than $2,000 - for details see page eight.
