Mandarin Consulting/Hong Kong Society Meet the Mentors Event 18th March 2015

A group of ambitious young Chinese students gathered at The Capital Club in the City of London on the 18th of March to meet four experienced and successful professionals from the Marketing, Sales, Media, PR and Communications sectors to have a stimulating mentoring session and dinner.

This gave the mentees the opportunity to be inspired by the very personal career development stories of the mentors shared at a Q&A Panel discussion session. Afterwards, the mentees enjoyed a two course dinner with the mentors in one of the glamorous function rooms of the Club, where they could talk at length and exchange ideas.

The impressive lineup of the mentors included Andy Westlake, CEO of Fast Track; Betty Lau, Director of Sales and Marketing, Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard, London; Sarah Walton-Smith, Marketing from Danone Advanced Medical Nutrition, Nutricia and Laurence James, Founder & CEO of Eurasia Partners. With a combined professional experience of more than 100 years between them, the mentors used this gathering to pass on most valuable experience and advice to this group of keen and inquisitive Chinese students.
