New London Architecture

NextGen Speed Mentoring evening


Tuesday 21 March 2023
18:30 - 20:30

NLA speed mentoring evenings provide a rare opportunity to meet with established professionals working across the industry – come armed with questions about projects, challenges you’re currently facing or your career progression.
This event forms a key part of the NLA NextGen programme, dedicated to supporting the next generations career progression and promoting emerging talent from across the built environment.
You’ll have the opportunity to meet with mentors from a cross-sector of the built environment throughout the evening, and there will be ample opportunity for networking. 
Spaces are limited so please do book fast to secure a place. Demand is high and we therefore ask you to let us know should you be unable to make it on the evening. We will be keeping a waitlist, you are very welcome to join us for a drink on the evening to see if any spaces open up.
