Elevate, the not-for-profit mentorship programme supporting event professionals, has announced the launch of its eighth season for new mentees and mentors.

Free to join, Elevate is designed to inspire, inform and empower people within the events industry, and both mentees and mentors are invited to apply here.

Founded in 2016 and led by Melissa Noakes, Max Fellows and Peter Kerwood, Elevate is now the biggest community of its kind in the world with an alumni of over 1,500 from across every sector within the events industry.

In 2023, 268 mentors and mentees from eight countries successfully completed the mentoring programme. Mentees benefitted from 800+ mentoring hours fuelled by a combined 2270+ years of experience from their industry mentors. Programme mentors volunteering their time join Elevate from across the full breadth of the events industry from venues to agencies and brands, such as TikTok, Pinterest, O2 and Netflix.

Dan Keene, Elevate advisory board member and director at Wonder commented: “As an industry, we all have a collective responsibility to pass the baton on. Like many others, I wouldn’t be in the lucky position I am today without the help, belief, guidance and support of kind peers and mentors at critical moments of the journey. In its eighth year, it’s doubly impressive that we’re already seeing Elevate go full circle, with mentees of yesterday becoming the industry leaders and mentors of tomorrow.”

Anton Jerges, CEO at We Are Collider, who joined the Elevate advisory board this year, added: “The Elevate programme is fantastic and the people behind it are brilliant. Mel, Max and Pete have created something incredibly professional. They are people with big hearts, and they set the tone for the organisation. A community of lovely, friendly people who want to do good things and help people do better, it’s amazing to be involved in something like that.”

Registrations will remain open until February with all mentee/mentor partnerships  announced soon after.
