A mentor can introduce you to other professionals in your field or industry, helping you expand your professional network and potentially opening doors to new opportunities.


Being a mentor can provide numerous personal and professional benefits, while also allowing individuals to make a positive impact on the lives of others.


Learn and grow through the experience of mentoring, gaining new perspectives and skills that can be applied to your own personal and professional lives. 


Seize opportunities to share expertise and knowledge, and to stay up-to-date on industry trends and developments. This can help you stay relevant and competitive in your field

A Mentorship Program for the Nordic Business Council Members

Through the Mentorship Program, NBC and the other Nordic Business Councils will link ambitious professionals with knowledgeable executives and entrepreneurs.  Our mission is to promote a mutual exchange of ideas and experience between mentors and mentees. The program provides participants with personal career guidance, ideas, business training and networking opportunities to foster the relationships between the more experienced members and the young professionals. The goal is to create valuable synergies between mentors and mentees, where both can grow from each other’s experiences.


6 Month Program

  1. A Launch event, where all participants will receive a framework as a guideline.

  2. A Mid program review event, to check how the progress is developing.

  3. A Closing grand dinner event, sharing stories and insights from each couple.

We would like to point out that it is the mentor and the mentee who decide how the mentorship program and their relationship develops. When and where they will meet, how the plan will be shaped, the communication executed, and issues tackled. It is important to know and acknowledge before applying, that is recommended that the mentee is responsible to drive the program and it is HIS/HER responsibility to learn and develop.

Please note that all applicants must be members of NBC or any of the other three Nordic Business Councils in Dubai. There is limited availability and mentee priority will be give to Young professionals. The participation in the program is free of charge and is subject to availability of a suitable mentor and a mentee.

We look forward to receiving your application:
