1on1 Mentoring

We understand the power of knowledge sharing. That’s why Game Industry Conference 2018 will be holding a new event – 1on1 Mentoring – a series of mentoring sessions, allowing the participants to ask questions and get advice from industry experts in a friendly, inclusive atmosphere.

 

1on1 Mentoring is meant for anyone seeking expertise from the video game industry leaders. In a short session, you will talk to a mentor optimally chosen for you on the base of your request. The mentoring session will much depend on what kind of advice you seek for – i.e. career advice, idea feedback, insights on the state of the industry and so on. This event is meant to be a place where everybody is welcome and can feel comfortable. So, if you’re a bit on the introvert side, don’t worry – we strongly encourage you to take part in it and get as much valuable knowledge as possible.
