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.
The organization of 1on1 Mentoring will go as follows:
1. Call for mentors is preformed.
2. Call for mentorees performed.
3. Shortly before the conference mentor-mentoree matching will be done by our experts.
The sessions will be held during the main conference days (12 – 14 October) at GIC floor.
