LEVEL UP! is a Speed Mentoring Night like no other for creatives working or studying- Fashion, Photography, TV, Media, PR, Advertising or Creative Direction. The event will allow 30 pre-selected young and established creatives and professionals, meet and connect with 8 industry leaders, get career and business advice, show off their portfolios, discuss projects/ideas and network with like-minds.
This is a unique chance to have a chat with trailblazers, seasoned pros, top execs, senior creatives and managers in Africa’s fashion/arts industry directly. Attendees will have timed sessions with each Guest Mentor to get their burning questions off their chests and give their best impressions.
Yoanna ‘pepper’ Chikezie, Founder of The Assembly says; “The idea of the speed mentoring night bridges the gap between young creative talent and seasoned professionals. It also helps one to focus their questions and sales pitch if you like, because just like in real life you only have a small window of opportunity to leave an impression and get the information you need.”
