Before the Event

After your registration has been confirmed you will be required to complete an online questionnaire about yourself, your company and your business goals (approx. 20 mins to fill in). The Master Entrepreneurs will read this information ahead of the event, which gives them a good understanding of the people attending and a chance to think about which entrepreneurs they may wish to mentor.

Every time this program has been run a third of the room are mentored.

On the day

8.30am – 8.45am: Welcome

8.45am – 12.45am: Speed Dating the Master Entrepreneurs

This is where you will get that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to listen to five Master Entrepreneurs and learn from them as they share rare insights about their journeys. To ensure you receive the most of this experience you will be seated at a table of no more than 10 people.

The Master Entrepreneurs will sit at each table for 30 minutes, during which time they will share their unique stories before answering questions. The Masters will move from table to table and by lunchtime, you will have heard from all five Masters. You will also have developed a genuine appreciation of what it takes to be successful as an entrepreneur.

12.45pm – 12.55pm: Request-a-mentor session

Having heard from all five Master Entrepreneurs, you will be asked to fill in an evaluation survey and lodge a request for mentoring. We will want to know, if you could choose one master as your mentor, who it would be and why.

12.00pm – 1pm: Networking lunch

At lunch, you will get the chance to mix with the Masters, VIP Guests and other entrepreneurs. You will develop new contacts, share ideas and exchange business cards with like-minded entrepreneurs in the relaxed setting of a casual networking luncheon.

After the event

If you have been lucky enough to be selected for a two-hour, one-on-one mentoring session, you will be contacted by your mentor within a fortnight of the event. Our Master Entrepreneurs make a commitment to mentor at least one person each, however they may choose to mentor more than one participant if they wish.

Every Time this program has been run a third of the room are mentored.
