C-Suite Speed  Mentorship

Join us at the C-Suite Speed Mentoring Sessions, one of Get Konnected!’s most anticipated events of the year, and gain invaluable insights from some of Boston’s top business executives. This unique session allows you to sit down with industry leaders in an intimate setting, and hear firsthand about the challenges and triumphs of climbing to the top. Individuals who attend will have the opportunity to sit at a table with 8-10 other Mentees and listen to some of Boston's top business executives thoughts on leadership and networking. Additionally, this year's featured Mentor is Blue Cross Blue Shield's CEO Sarah Iselin. Attendees will have the opportunity to see an exclusive interview with Sarah, as she tells her "tale from the top" and the role mentorship played in her career, plus her dedication to driving Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at BCBSMA and throughout the Commonwealth. By joining this event you will experience: Leadership Insights: Mentors will share their personal experiences and strategies that have helped them navigate their career and business challenges. This could include lessons learned, pivotal decisions, and leadership philosophies that have guided them. Effective Networking: Discuss the importance of building and maintaining professional relationships. This might include tips on using social media for professional growth, how to engage in networking events, or ways to sustain professional relationships. Engaging with High-Profile Mentors: Our mentors come from all industries, professions, and backgrounds. They have both been there, done that and have made a prominent brand for themselves internal and externally. Growth Mindset: The role of your mentor is not just to educate but also to inspire the attendees to strive for excellence and ethical leadership in their own careers. They will share anecdotes or personal mantras that have kept them motivated and could resonate with you. Follow-Up Opportunities Keep in touch after the event, whether through LinkedIn, professional groups, or direct email. Continuous interaction can help build stronger mentor-mentee relationships and provide ongoing support. By focusing on these areas, you can provide tremendous value to the attendees and help cultivate a more dynamic, skilled, and diverse business community in Boston. This event promises to be a rewarding experience for all involved, and your expertise will undoubtedly make a significant impact.
