AMADC’s Marketing Mentors Network is kicking off in October with a new cohort of marketers. Here’s what you get:
- A community of marketers
- Six months of virtual and in-person networking sessions
- A matching program that pairs you with someone who wants to help
- Proteges and mentors from top universities, corporations, and associations
- Entrepreneurs sharing their marketing challenges
- A program where over 80% of graduates recommend it
The AMADC Marketing Mentor Network (MMN) program is built on a foundation of community in the DMV. We work to match experienced marketing leaders with early to mid-career marketing professionals for one-on-one mentoring and group networking.
This AMADC flagship program runs over the course of six-months, starting in October, and focused on the growth and development of the entire cohort, facilitating the exchange of ideas, and opportunities for professional growth through individual and group events. With guidance from the MMN Leadership team, mentors and proteges are paired together based on the proteges career objectives and goals outlined during the application process.
The result is an engaging mentorship experience, new connections and lasting relationships.
How Does It Work?
The Marketing Mentors Network is a member-only benefit and proteges must be AMADC members to participate. There is a one-time program fee of $199 for proteges due upon program acceptance. Participants must be located in the DC-Metro area.
The 2022/2023 Marketing Mentors Network will be in a ‘hybrid’ format to encourage interaction with the entire cohort.
The program kick-off will be in-person with the cohort. The group will have the chance to meet each other, review program objectives, and mentors/proteges will have time to fine tune their goals. Mentors and proteges will arrange to meet regularly on their own, and events for the entire cohort will occur once monthly.
The program makes use of Slack and LinkedIn to keep the group connected. These channels can be used to seek advice from others and stay in touch with other program participants. Previous cohorts remain connected and can respond to questions to the group.
“Each year the program keeps working to step up its game and it is reflected in ongoing success.”
“As a rising manager, it is more challenging to grow people management skills compared to traditional skill development. My mentor worked with me to develop a management style.”
