2020 Young Professionals Mentorship Series: Inspiring and Mentoring Tomorrow’s Leaders (Chubu Event)
The ACCJ-Chubu Young Professionals Forum (YPF) is honored to host the 2020 Young Professionals Mentorship Series, which pairs experienced leaders with ambitious young professionals. It is an opportunity to hear and learn how these influential leaders became who they are today. Throughout the series, the young leaders of tomorrow will pick up tips and advice on how they can guide their own careers and shape their futures.
The Mentorship Series comprises four 90-minute table discussions over lunch. Each leader will give a 30-minute speech followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. The remaining 30 minutes will be an open discussion among attendees and presenters. By keeping the number of attendees low, each person will have a chance to talk and ask questions.
