Mentorship Roundtable

Marketers are a social group by nature. We interact with many, share information, ideas, and concepts in collaborating for business success. However, in developing our careers, sometimes it’s best to learn on a one-on-one basis from an industry veteran who has walked our path and can help us navigate through our struggles to build a successful career. Are you a marketing coordinator or marketing assistant with less than 5 years of experience in the A/E/C industry? Are you looking for an opportunity to discuss ideas with other new marketers and learn from senior marketers?  If so, this is the roundtable for you!

2019-2020 Mentorship Roundtable Registration is Opened

If you're interested in participating in the Mentorship Roundtable, please contact one of our facilitators: 

Tanya Boyer, CPSM | OTAK
Christina Shaw | Century West Engineering

The Mentorship Roundtable is offered at no cost to active SMPS members only. The group will meet bi-monthly October-June and will consist of a combination of marketers with less than five years of experience and senior marketers. The topics will be selected by the group and will range from Research and Organizational Management to Proposals and Marketing Plans, Interviews and Debriefs. The roundtable will provide an interactive opportunity to learn from others in similar roles as well as senior marketers.

In addition to roundtable discussions, each mentee will be assigned a mentor. This relationship is designed to provide:

  1. A confidential resource to the marketer and their firm
  2. Expansion of professional networks
  3. Access to a broad range of marketing information
  4. A forum to discuss marketing issues and challenges

To be a mentor, one must have a bachelor’s degree + five years A/E/C marketing experience, or eight years’ A/E/C marketing experience without a degree.
