Speed Mentoring

Have some fun at SBE on Saturday morning while meeting established-career colleagues at SBE!

Here’s a chance for a number of early- career colleagues to seed relationships with established-career colleagues, in a dynamic, stimulating and fun session. (Fun! Yes, absolutely.) Have a moment to sit down for a chat with colleagues such as Ed Freeman (Darden), Nien-hê Hsieh (Harvard), Dawn Elm (St Thomas), and others!

When: Saturday Aug. 5, 8:00 – 9:00 am at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel

What: Over the course of a structured hour-long session, you will have the opportunity to meet individually with all 10 participating mentors for brief introductions and chats, which will allow you to build relationships throughout this and future SBE meetings, and throughout the year, if you wish.

Why? Benefits include the opportunity to expand your professional network, building both formal and informal collaborative relationships, the ability to make quick connections on which you can follow-up later during the meeting, and the chance to share a bit of content surrounding your research interests (mentors will receive your materials for review prior to the session and all participants will receive contact information).

How? If you’re interested in participating, please see below submission guidelines and submit by June 1, 2017. If you are invited to participate, please BE ON TIME. Latecomers will miss early session sit-downs since the pace is firmly structured!

Also! We will maintain a wait-list in case of regrets; so please check your email / phone for messages once on site, even if you are not one of the final early career participants!
