Mentoring masterclasses

Our mentoring masterclasses will hone your mentoring technique, help build mutually beneficial relationships, and review the challenges of being an effective mentor or mentee.

We enable thoughtful, constructive discussion across both sides of mentoring relationships, facilitated by experienced mentoring coordinator and executive coach Alexis Hutson.

These sessions are open to all current and potential Academy mentees as well as Academy Fellows. 

Following a masterclass, you will have a clear understanding of:

  • The roles of mentor and mentee.

  • How to establish and manage expectations.

  • How to deal with potential challenges during a mentoring relationship.

  • How to ask good questions and give and receive feedback.


Most of our events are currently online as part of  the Academy's response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The next mentoring masterclasses will be:
