Global Mentoring Network

AgileUplift's "Global Mentoring Network" is a peer-to-peer mentoring and coaching initiative aiming to support professionals by connecting mentors and mentees together. It focuses on providing support in all areas related to product discovery, development and delivery, in particular using agile/lean approaches. Many of our mentees are aspiring Scrum Masters or Product Owners or otherwise aspire to apply lean, agile thinking to their current role and organisation.

Our network of mentors consists of both professional coaches and trainers as well as a community of peers who have been through this journey themselves and are willing to pay it forward.

This initiative is a non-profit program by AgileUplift bringing together a growing number of mentors and coaches who join the network on a voluntary and by-invitation-only basis. This program is currently in pilot and only available to AgileUplift clients and alumni. Contact us for any questions.
