Welcome to Mentor Workshop which is part of the Baltic Sea Game Incubation project!

The BSGI Mentor Workshop is designed for mentors who wish to improve own mentoring skills and practices. Mentoring is not just beneficial for the mentees, but is valuable for the professional development and leadership skills of the mentors, which can open new career opportunities!

As part of BSGI project we are organising a one-day fully online workshop that aims to provide valuable content with concrete tools and methods that can support mentors in their goals. To participate, previous mentoring experience is not mandatory prior to the workshop, only the will and interest in becoming a mentor and learning the best practices from the industry peers.

Preliminary agenda:

  • 12:30 – Registration
  • 13:00 – Opening remarks by Natasha Skult and Suvi Kiviniemi
