Virtual Speed Mentoring: In the Spotlight, Build Your Self-Confidence

Are you trying to find your place in the spotlight and be more visible at work? Do you find it difficult to take credit for your hard work, or show off your skills and experience?

Does the spotlight fill you with dread? Do you want to speak up in meetings, feel more confident in interviews, or hone your presentation skills?

These are common feelings, and a lack of confidence can often hold us back. Fortunately, confidence is a skill that can be learned!

Develop your self-promotion skills and find your voice, by joining us at the Women in Communications and Technology, and The Discovery Foundation’s Virtual Speed Mentoring event. You can learn from some of BC’s most inspiring leaders on how they overcame their fears and found confidence in the spotlight.

What is Speed Mentoring?

A Speed Mentoring event consists of a series of short, round-table discussions facilitated by one volunteer mentor and up to three mentees.

  • Form new connections with both mentors and mentees from a diverse set of backgrounds
  • Explore how having a mentor could support you and your career
  • Gather a range of new perspectives on a challenge you are currently facing

How will speed mentoring work online?

Similar to how it would in person. After we all meet together, you’ll be allocated to a virtual room with a mentor and up to two other mentees. You’ll have 15 minutes to ask questions and hear advice from your mentor, then you’ll have a new mentor for 15 minutes and so on. 


Discovery Foundation’s Speed Mentoring Program in Collaboration with WCTBC, is an event series that seeks to provide informal mentoring opportunities to all women, trans and non-binary people working in communications and technology.
