TIME seeks more men­tors

Travel Daily - - News -

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.
