Mentor Me is mentoring with a difference; it focuses on career growth and development for both experienced and new hospitality managers.

Our student members and Associates (AIH) are matched with experienced Members (MIH) and Fellows (FIH) to undertake some guided learning on topical industry issues alongside monthly meetings.

If you can commit to a one-to-one meeting each month for a six month period and you are keen to undertake professional development as well as supporting a colleague then Mentor Me could be for you! Meetings do not always need to be in person, you can choose to meet via Skype, Face Time etc if more convenient.

I have been paired with an Institute of Hospitality Fellow through the Mentor Me scheme. My mentor has helped me to create a set of professional goals and give advice on a variety of work-related topics which have been very beneficial to my development.

The mentoring scheme is great. I requested a mentor and within a few days we had connected. My mentor is extremely lovely and I can already tell that he is a really positive role model to have around me especially when starting my career.
