Minds of Tomorrow Mentorprogramma

Minds of Tomorrow Project voor Young ProfessionalsMinds of Tomorrow (MoT) is het mentorprogramma van de DBRT Zürich waarbij young professionals gekoppeld worden aan executives die actief zijn in het Zwitserse bedrijfsleven met als doel de carrière en persoonlijke ontwikkeling te stimuleren.

Over een periode van 1 jaar wordt er op individuele basis gewerkt aan persoonlijke, professionele en leiderschapsdoelstellingen. De DBRT hanteert strikte selectiecriteria en ondersteunt mentoren als ook mentees gedurende het traject om het succes van het programma te waarborgen. Het programma sluit naadloos aan op de ambitie van de DBRT om meer te betekenen voor young professionals en de uitwisseling tussen junioren en senioren te stimuleren.

In 2018 zijn we gestart met 10 mentoren en 18 mentees. Elke maand stellen de mentoren tijd beschikbaar voor persoonlijk overleg en begeleiding met 1-3 mentees. In 2019 hadden we 25 mentees in ons programma.

De mentoren van Minds of Tomorrow 2020

Elk jaar is voorafgaand aan de nieuwjaarsborrel de gelegenheid om op laagdrempelige wijze kennis te maken met de mentoren. Dit geeft je de mogelijkheid om beter te kunnen bepalen welke mentor nou echt bij jou als Young Professional past en hem/haar vragen te stellen die je kunnen helpen bij het schrijven van een gerichte motivatie.

Hieronder vind je een overzicht van onze mentoren die zich voor 2020 geheel belangeloos inzetten voor onze Young Professionals:
