Licensing International launches global mentoring programme

Licensing International – together with sponsor, Octane5 – has revealed the licensing industry’s first global mentoring programme, aimed at bringing the expertise of veterans in the business to young professionals.

With an initial focus on regions including the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan and China, industry professionals and Licensing International members can sign up to join the programme directly at beginning today (18 January).

Following sign up, participants will be matched up by Licensing International with their mentor or mentee through the programme.

The new programme will allow mentees to build skills and knowledge while working toward attaining career goals. At the same time, it will provide an opportunity for mentors to further enhance skills and knowledge areas through exposure to fresh perspectives.

“Knowledge sharing and mentoring are such powerful tools that have the potential to transform lives, and so we knew as industry leaders we wanted to create a platform to encourage just that,” said Maura Regan, president of Licensing International. “Our mentorship programme will not only build meaningful connections between longstanding professionals and young newcomers, but also offer important opportunities for growth and development.”

Mike Dunn, co-founder and president of Octane5, added: “When we connected with Licensing International to sponsor the upcoming mentorship programme, we were delighted to be able to facilitate connections between professionals in our industry.

“Partnering with Licensing International allows us to offer a space where professionals new and old can form working relationships that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.”
