Architects Speed Mentoring

23 February 2023

The ACA in collaboration with Perth Design Week is excited to announce our first Speed Mentoring Event! Over one hour of rapid exchange, emerging practice directors will have the opportunity to learn from experts in practice leadership, business strategy and systems, culture, marketing and more. Think speed dating with a professional purpose!


Who should attend?

o   Directors and senior staff of newly formed and emerging architecture practices
o   Anyone considering branching out and establishing their own small practice

How will it work?

Each mentee will sit and chat with a mentor for ten minutes before moving on to the next. We encourage you to come with an open mind and a list of questions to help guide your conversations. You will have the opportunity to nominate your preferred three mentors ahead of the event.
