Web-based Service for Women Mentors
Monday, 12th April 2010 at 2:03 pm

Australian women who run their own businesses or seek professional and personal development now have access to online mentoring and networking 24/7 with the launch of new web-based services by the Australian Women’s Mentoring Network (AWMN).

The services have been developed to meet the demands of busy career and business women, no matter where they live.

AWMN founder Catherine Seton says recent research shows that a combination of mentoring and networking is a robust predictor of both career success and satisfaction, above and beyond either of these activities on their own.

Seton, who founded the network in May 2004, says the website has been launched to provide all women with opportunities both to become a mentor and to receive coaching, and extend the reach beyond cities into rural and regional areas.

She says the AWMN is there for women at the time of day when they can most benefit from it.

Seton says that for many women, the only time they have for their own personal development is at the end of a busy day. 

The AWMN offers free mentoring and coaching discounts for its members.

She says professional and social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook are good examples of where informal mentoring can take place.

She says the AWMN takes that one huge step further by encouraging women to connect specifically for mentoring and networking.

To encourage women to engage in mentoring and networking, professional development events are taking place in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne next week, enabling participants to network and engage in peer mentoring.

Brisbane, Tuesday 20th April:
Meet, Greet and Speak – How to Make Your Networking Work, a unique opportunity to see well-known networking specialist and founder ofwww.ConfidentWoman.com.au, Rachel Green.

Melbourne, Wednesday 21st April:
Better Questions are the Answer, presented by communication specialist Lindsay Tighe (MBA)(www.betterquestionsaretheanswer.com), who has been featured in numerous national professional and women’s magazines.

Sydney, Thursday 22nd April:
How to be Memorable in any Medium, an opportunity to hear Leila Henderson, journalist, pitch coach and CEO of award-winning Press Release Service NewsMaker (www.NewsMaker.com.au).
