ILP’s inSIGHTS Mentoring Program provides ILP Members and Fellows with a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals, sharing their insights and knowledge.

Overview

Once you register your interest in being mentored, ILP will assign a Mentor (ILP Fellow) who will work with you for a period of up to four hours on your nominated developmental areas. Both you and your mentor will agree on:

  • meeting locations, methods and times
  • discuss and agree expectations
  • strategies to work on your developmental areas
  • working within the ILP Mentoring Program guidelines.

Testimonial

“I found the ILP mentoring program an invaluable resource to help give me external input and support into particular focus areas of  business growth by an impartial and experienced professional. Being mentored by someone in the same field made all the difference, and Dennis was an excellent mentor match for me. His insightful, energetic and deliberate approach challenged me and gave me new tools and new perspectives to the business areas I wanted to develop. The program was incredibly effective, and involvement was easy through it’s design of four structured sessions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”
