Mentor Program

To provide new Evangelism Reps with the proper support required, we have implemented a Mentor program where you can team up with one someone who's "been there, done that" and can share some tips and tricks to help you succeed. You are encouraged to request a mentor, and request to attend events with them to learn the ropes and participate in the conference.

  • How Can a Mentor Help You?
    • Share experience and knowledge base in being a speaker.
    • Resources to help you succeed and overcome roadblocks.
    • Answer questions and provide feedback.
    • Develop new and/or different perspectives in being a speaker.
    • Provide assistance with ideas for your slides and presentations.
    • Demonstrate strengths and explore your potential.
  • Become a Mentor:
    • Evangelism Reps are encouraged to become mentors to each other. This will help your fellow Evangelism Reps develop their skills and improve yours at the same time.
