Licensing International Announces Global Mentoring Program
NEW YORK, NY – [January 18 , 2021] – In honor of National Mentoring Month, Licensing International and their sponsor Octane5 have announced today the licensing industry’s first ever global mentoring program, aimed at bringing the expertise of global industry veterans to young professionals. With an initial focus on regions including the United States, UK, France, Germany, Japan and China industry professionals and Licensing International members can sign up to join the program directly at LicensingInternational.org beginning today. Following sign up, participants will be matched up by Licensing International with their mentor or mentee through the program.
Mentoring is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool through which one person facilitates the development of another by sharing known resources, expertise, values, skills, perspectives, attitudes, and proficiencies. Licensing International’s new program will allow mentees to build skills and knowledge while working toward attaining career goals. At the same time, it will provide an opportunity for mentors to further enhance skills and knowledge areas through exposure to fresh perspectives.
Most importantly, the Licensing International Mentoring Program aims to bring value and career growth to licensing experts of all levels across a multitude of businesses and categories. Participating mentees will have an opportunity to gain wisdom from an experienced professional, while mentors have the chance to invest in an up-and-coming professional who can benefit from their skilled guidance.
“Knowledge sharing and mentoring are such powerful tools that have the potential to transform lives, and so we knew as industry leaders we wanted to create a platform to encourage just that,” said Maura Regan, President of Licensing International. “Our mentorship program will not only build meaningful connections between longstanding professionals and young newcomers, but also offer important opportunities for growth and development.”
“When we connected with Licensing International to sponsor the upcoming mentorship program, we were delighted to be able to facilitate connections between professionals in our industry,” said Mike Dunn, Co-Founder and President Octane5. “Partnering with Licensing International allows us to offer a space where professionals new and old can form working relationships that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.”
