JITO Speed Mentoring

Event Description

Please register for this event at https://www.eventleaf.com/jitospeedmentoring

JITO (Jain International Trade Organization) is a global organization that brings together a network of Jain professionals, business leaders, industrialists, and college students to achieve higher economic prosperity, enrich humanity, and create economic empowerment for the community at large.

Its vision is to unite all JAIN professionals and business leaders across the USA. We are delighted to invite you to the first JITO USA-Speed Mentoring Eve. JITO's mentors are leaders in the top businesses of the Bay Area such as Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon. We invite you to build your mentor network with our upcoming event. 

JITO's plan with this event is to give a platform to attendees to network with emerging and established leaders. Each mentor will spend 10 minutes each with 5 mentees in a riff on speed dating. The conversation is free-form. Suggested topics/ideas for discussion are:

  1. Can you tell me about a time when you had a difficult boss? How did you handle the situation?
  2. What's the most important leadership lesson you've learned and how has it proven invaluable?
  3. What do you wish you had known before taking your first management role?
  4. How do I prepare to be an entrepreneur (which invariably means trade-offs and sacrifices at many levels) against the comforts of a relatively steady job and also the demands of a certain quality of life? (Mortgage, private schools, vacations, etc.)

They will be matching mentees to mentors based on their career stage and 3-5 skills they identify about themselves. Before the event, they will prepare the schedule for speed mentoring and conduct the schedule on the day of the event. JITO looks forward to your presence at this important meeting for the growth and support of JAIN professionals.
