 Volkswagen Mentoring Session
Spend an hour with your favorite entrepreneurs and mentors as they share their experience and give you advice. 
The group mentoring session gives attendees the opportunity to join mentors at their tables for an intimate group discussion about any topic.

Mentors will be announced on the day and attendees can choose whose table they would like to join for the group mentoring session. 

We are also happy to introduce a number of 
private mentoring sessions with guest mentors. Spaces are very limited and the mentees will be chosen from a pool of applicants.
