2018 ULI Hong Kong Mentorship Programme

ULI Hong Kong Young Leaders Group is excited to present the 2018 ULI Hong Kong Mentorship Programme exclusively for ULI members under 35 and based in Hong Kong.

The mission of the Mentorship Programme is to foster an exchange of professional ideas and mentorship between experienced executives in the industry (“Mentors”) and young real estate professionals (“Mentees”). The goal is to provide Mentors the opportunity to strengthen ties with one or two young leaders of the local real estate community and the opportunity to gain a fresh perspective and additional experience as an advisor, supporter and coach. Mentees will have the chance to learn from experienced industry players.

Building a professional and social relationship between Mentor and Mentee is accomplished through attending three Mentor-Mentee ULI events throughout the year, as well as establishing individual communication, with quarterly meetings scheduled directly between Mentor and Mentee. There will be a kick-off cocktail at the start of the programme.

After assigning Mentees to Mentors, most communication (except for the ULI sponsored events mentioned above) will be directly between the Mentor and the Mentee. And, you as the Mentee would be responsible to schedule meetings with your mentors based on a mutually agreeable time.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to the 2018 ULI Hong Kong Mentorship Programme!
