Women In Consulting Launches Mentorship Program

Consultants Will Benefit From Actionable Advice From Peers and Subject Matter Experts

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - July 29, 2015) - Women In Consulting (WIC) today launched a mentorship program that will help consultants and other women business owners address the challenges of running their own businesses. The highly practical WIC Mentorship Program, which is open to non-WIC members, will allow participants to bounce ideas off their peers, get feedback from experts, and celebrate their successes.

"Running your own business can be incredibly exhilarating," says Robin Weintraub, WIC's director of Mentorship. "At the same time, you can feel isolated and may not know where to turn for advice and counsel. Based on feedback from our members, we have put together an engaging three-faceted program that includes Mastermind groups, webinar coaching and speed mentoring to help enrich the participants' personal and professional lives."

WIC Mastermind Groups

WIC Mastermind groups are designed to help participants share resources and networks, develop a trusted support system, and benefit from tested ideas and business practices. The Mastermind participants will act as personal advisors, giving professional advice and opinions, alerting each other to opportunities, and helping each other navigate smoothly past blind spots.

WIC Webinar Coaching

Webinars are an excellent way for professionals to position themselves as thought leaders. WIC Webinar Coaching helps participants develop professional presentation skills quickly -- and test them in front of a live audience. The program includes informational sessions and one-on-one coaching. Topics will include script development, presentation tips and webinar technology. After "test-driving" their webinar in front of WIC members and others, participants will receive a video of their presentation for marketing purposes.

WIC Speed Mentoring

WIC's first speed mentoring event occurred on June 18, 2015. More than a dozen experts provided real-time input on business challenges and answered a host of questions -- all in tidy, seven-minute segments. The response to the event has been extremely positive. ("It's like speed dating, but much better!") WIC plans to host another session in 2016.
