    Why do mentoring with Meld?
    The questions we pose and the expertise we share is based on almost 10 years experience as Meld Studios—having worked with over 150 organisations across 15 industries—plus our previous professional and academic experience.

    You are tapping into a wealth of expertise that spans ethnographic research, psychology, business, service design, industrial design, organisation design, change management, events and visual communication. Many of us have more than 20 years experience and are recognised influencers of our industry.

    How does it work?
    After a quick call to understand your challenge and budget, we will pair you up with a suitable mentor. In your first session together you will get advice on your immediate challenges and map out a plan for further sessions if that’s needed. You can sign up for another one-off session or for a package off time to draw upon.

    What is group mentoring?
    This is a 2-hour conversation facilitated by Meld for a small group of people who are facing a similar challenge (typically 4 or 5 max). You’ll get to draw on the experience of Meld and your fellow participants for advice. Sessions are held at our Sydney and Melbourne studios, and run virtually via Zoom.

    Who else will be there for the group sessions?
    Group mentoring sessions are open to everyone. It may be a few people from the same organisation or people from different organisations. Either way, we create an opportunity to connect, share and learn from people facing a similar challenge in addition to learning from us.

    I don’t want to share my issues with people I don’t know
    We ask our participants to follow Chatham House Rules and not repeat what has been shared by others without consent. We also offer individual, private sessions if your challenges are too personal or sensitive to share in a group setting.

    Do I need special hardware or software to join virtually?
    No, we will use Zoom. You will access the session via a link that works on most phones, tablets and computers.

    Is catering provided?
    We will provide light refreshments for group mentoring sessions at our studios.
