GIODN is pleased to welcome author Elaina Zuker to discuss her book, “YOU x 2”. Peer Mentoring is a combination or confluence of two trends (networking and mentoring). Peer-Mentoring is a simple, but powerful technique for achieving success in a focused, target and accelerated way. Using clearly defined separate goals, two individuals form a mutual “Support for Success” contract to achieve real results, exchanging complementary skills and resources. In this session Elaina will describe and demonstrate a model of Intentional Networking and Support via Peer Mentoring for your practical use throughout your education, career, and beyond.
