Mentoring Programme


About STEPS

The STEPS Mentor Programme in collaboration with The Marketing Society’s Future Council and IAPI exists to help industry talent, either new to or looking to join the industry, thrive.

We believe that with the right infrastructure of support in place a new generation of talent can come through, bringing with them enormous value, diversity and creativity to the industry.

To enable us to create the best mentoring programme that we can we believe that the focus must first be on the Mentors. We want to recruit those that wish to enhance their management skills, improve their empathy, share their experiences, and develop their own career further by giving back as a mentor.

The programme’s mentors will be industry experts, senior-leaders with a wealth of knowledge, and will include a mix of Agency and Client side.

All mentors will participate in mentor training on August 22nd in preparation for the programme’s launch. This will be a comprehensive half-day workshop; please see here to learn more.

The STEPS mentoring programme runs over a 6-month period, beginning in September 2024 to March 2025 and you can expect anywhere between 6-12 sessions with your partner.

To apply to take part as either a mentor or mentee, please complete the relevant application form. Once you've done that we will review the information you've shared to make sure you're matched as best as possible to compliment each other's skills and ambitions.
