The Mentorship Program

Our Mentorship Program brings together experienced professionals looking to share their knowledge of the industry and Siemens PLM Connection – Americas with first-time attendees and/or those looking to connect with and learn from the best.

Mentors: Your experience of the conference and the industry will be invaluable to our mentees. This an opportunity for you to meet new people and pass on your knowledge. And, I bet you will learn a thing or two from your mentee.

Mentees: This program is designed for first-time attendees and those looking for assistance networking and navigating the conference.

Once paired up, mentors will contact mentees a few weeks prior to the conference to introduce him or herself. This initial outreach will help your mentor access your specific needs and address any questions or concerns.
