On Wednesday 16 October 2019, Citywealth's Powerwomen Club will be hosting a lunchtime panel discussion on the difference between being a mentor and a sponsor; how a sponsor is instrumental in pulling strings to bring success for others. The difference is more directive: being that person behind the scenes who brings women forward; identifying stars in your organisation and their traits and how to leverage and copy them; How to identify a sponsor? Making the relationship work both ways. We'll be debating all these questions and more whilst also enjoying a lunch and time for networking with peers.
To celebrate women supporting women with their career advancement, we’re offering a special offer until 10 July, 2019.
