Why Become a Mentor?

By | News

An effective mentoring relationship has the potential to create successful leaders and the odds are you have benefited from such a relationship throughout your career.  Perhaps at various points in your career, you have also been a mentor in some capacity, even if informally. Typically speaking a mentor relationship is voluntary on both sides but can occasionally result from a relationship between a manager and their team. The idea behind the concept of mentoring is somewhat charitable with the more successful, senior member of the duo passing on information they have learned to someone who will benefit from their experience. Likewise, a mentee has the opportunity to collaborate with the mentor and contribute a different perspective. Although many people may have had an informal mentoring experience, there can be great benefit from goal setting through formal mentoring. This allows the opportunity to enhance your people and leadership skills as you work with individuals at different points in their careers. You can learn fresh perspectives from future members of your profession and increase your profile. Mentoring is more than giving advice, it’s about collaboration and empowerment. It’s a chain of passing on information and best practices, spreading the benefits more widely. So empower yourself to empower someone else and sign up to be a mentor today. To participate in CACC's Mentoring Pilot Program, powered by Thread, please email your expression of interest to mentoring@cacc.com.au - please state in subject line if you are a Mentor or Mentee.

CACC launches Toronto Committee!

By | News

There is a buzz in the air in Toronto that can be felt from 15,000km away in Australia. Since the Sydney-based Canadian Australian Chamber of Commerce (CACC) was reinvigorated four years ago, it has gone from strength to strength. The CACC now boasts more than 30 volunteers, as well as some incredibly high-profile corporate sponsors and members. The focus is now on expanding the Canadian arm of the Chamber. Following the successful launch of the Melbourne Committee of the CACC 12 months ago, a Toronto Committee is now being established to increase the Chamber’s volunteer and supporter base. The Canadian Australian Chamber of Commerce (CACC) is a non-profit, business-focused organisation that aims to build business connections and assist trade and investment as a means to bring Canada and Australia closer together. The CACC was established to strengthen business relationships between the countries, making it easier for companies to establish themselves in both Canada and Australia. The Toronto Committee is now calling for expressions of interest from potential members and volunteers interested in sharing business expertise that will further enhance Canadian-Australian trade and investment relationships. People with connections to or business interests in these countries who want to assist in strengthening these ties should get in touch with the Chamber to get involved. The Toronto Committee will be headed up by directors Greg McNab and Ross Campbell. Mr McNab has a strong history with the Toronto arm of the CACC, dating back to 2009, while Mr Campbell has recently joined the Toronto arm after relocating from Sydney where he was heavily involved in the Australian arm.
