NLA NextGen Speed Mentoring 2018

This month saw 60 built environment professionals from across the industry come together at G&T’s London HQ for the NLA NextGen Speed Mentoring 2018.

As Programme Champion of New London Architecture’s (NLA) NextGen programme, G&T welcomed mentors and mentees for an evening of knowledge sharing, inspiration and discussion, giving all involved the opportunity to share insights and experiences from their career journeys.

Speed mentoring is an invaluable way for the younger generation to have one-to-one conversations with senior industry figures. Throughout the evening each mentee spent 15 minutes with a variety of experienced industry experts, discussing challenges within the construction industry and receiving valuable career advice.
