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 opened and announced.
Mentors are expected to spend 2-3 hours on sessions with mentorees and will be asked to accept mentorees and topics prior to the event.
For doing the sessions mentors will be granted GIC Bussiness Pass (highest tier).
2. In September call for mentorees will be opened and announced.
Please be reminded that in order to become a mentoree, you need to be either a Developer Pass or Business Pass holder.
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.
