Road Rules for Mentorship: What's Appropriate (& What's Not)

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

In a world where the saying "it's all about who you know" is more and more relevant across multiple platforms, mentoring is more important than ever. But once you've managed to find someone who is willing to take you under their wing, how do you keep that relationship alive? What subjects are appropriate fodder for you and your newly-found mentor to discuss?

During this session, you'll have the opportunity to see just how mentoring can benefit you not only personally, but also professionally. The panelists will share industry research and unique insights on what is appropriate in a mentoring relationship (and what isn't), how to keep the relationship alive after it has been established, as well as how to reap the most benefits from the relationship.

LEVEL: Intermediate
