2023 HBA Asia-Pacific Region Mentoring Program

Please visit our mentoring program FAQs page for information about program expectations, the application process, refunds, and much more. Registration has been extended to 7 February 2023. Pricing is listed in USD and Euro.

HBA Asia-Pacific will offer the HBA Mentoring Program for the first time in 2023 and will employ either a 1:1 or group mentoring model. The program is international and, as such, mentoring pairs usually meet virtually, except where mentoring pairs may be co-located. If you are an industry leader — or want to become one — here’s your chance to learn, grow and forge meaningful relationships with others. This mentoring program harnesses the power of mentoring relationships to help mentees set and achieve professional/career goals and forge new connections. Each mentoring relationship functions independently, setting its own meeting dates, times, and locations.

IMPORTANT: Please note that meeting times will be held during times convenient to individuals living in the Asia-Pacific Region. If you are not located in the Asia-Pacific Region and choose to participate in this program, please be mindful of time zones.
