Speed Mentoring Event

CIC's 2050 Group together with Gardiner & Theobald are running a speed mentoring event at G&T's offices in central London.

Speed Mentoring is a light-hearted approach to mentoring and a bit like speed dating! The process is simple; during the course of the evening mentees will be introduced to three senior industry figures and will spend approximately 15 minutes with each of them. This will be followed by an open networking session.

The mentors will answer questions on the industry, share reflections on a particular challenge the mentee may be experiencing, or advise on career path development.

The aim of the event is to provide people in the early stages of their career with the opportunity to learn from those who have knowledge and experience.

Our objectives are:

  • To encourage the transfer of knowledge from generation to generation.
  • To provide the opportunity for those in the early stages of their careers with access to leading experts.
  • To promote longer term mentoring.

Ann Bentley, Global Chairman – Rider Levett Bucknell,  Tony Burton, Partner – G&T, James Bryce, Director of Strategic Workforce Planning – Arcadis, Theo Constantinides, Partner – G&T, Bobby Chakravarthy, Partner and Head of Architecture – Arcus Consulting, Maria Coulter, Managing Director – Construction Coach, Andy Dean, Managing Director – BS2B, Tanya De Hoog, Principal – Thornton Tomasetti,  Mark Farmer, CEO – Cast, Noel Farrer, Creative Director – Farrer Huxley Associates, Susan Hone-Brooks, Chief Engineer for Construction and Infrastructure – Manufacturing Technology Centre, Charles Leon, Director – Leon Black, David Miller, Director & Principal Architect – David Miller Architects, Alex Narian, Associate Director – ADAM Architecture, Jason J Speechly-Dick, Director of Architecture - ATKINS, Jack Pringle, Principal, Managing Director – Pringle Brandon Perkins+Wills, Rosslyn Stuart, Director of Professional Standards and Development – RTPI, Borbala Trifunovics, Associate Director – ARUP and Danna Walker, Director – Built By Us.
