Putting her event planning, creativity and communication skills together to create their first event for the year with Speed Mentoring: 7 tables, 7 topics, 7 leaders and invitees had 15 minutes at each table. It was a huge success with delegates asking for longer periods on each topic. Who could ask for a more positive result than that? The next event will be, as requested, a long version of two of the topics with two of the table leaders: "Meet Your Mentor x Two".
