UnMentoring is Back

For those new to UnMentoring it can be explained in 3 simple steps:

  • Step 1: You sign up to committing to having a conversation remotely (or face to face) with a random person for around 30 minutes
  • Step 2: You are randomly assigned somebody to have conversation with – a different person each time
  • Step 3: You connect and have a conversation about your work, projects or anything you want


It has been a while since the last UnMentoring took place – However in that time we have been reviewing how the scheme works and what we can do to improve it.

To help make this opportunity better we’ve decided to work with the good folks at Spark Collaboration who are letting us use their platform to run UnMentoring – You can find out more about Spark Collaboration at

We’re really excited by this new relationship as it moves UnMentoring out of beta , into live and allows us to scale up easier and without any administrative complexity.

However it does mean that if you want to continue with UnMentoring you’ll have to sign up again on the new platform here. Apologies about that but we wanted you to be in control of whether you continued or not.

It only takes 30 seconds to complete and you’ll need to validate your email. The main difference is that you’re in control of your profile and your details which means you can update your profile when things change.  You can also add links to your social platforms which should help provide some context for the introductions. You can even add a photo if you wanted to!

The next round of UnMentoring will start from 8th February so please sign up ASAP.

We hope that you want to continue with UnMentoring, we know that it can sometimes be difficult to find the time but we truly believe in helping you connect with people who can help you grow personally and professionally.
