Global Mentorship Program

The Global Mentorship Program creates Mentor-Mentee relationships for Spa, Wellness & Hospitality professionals around the world. By matching Mentors & Mentees, the Global Mentorship Program is helping talented & motivated Spa, Wellness & Hospitality professionals develop the skills necessary for a successful career and allowing those with experience to pass along their best practices.

This first-ever global mentorship initiative was launched by a committee of Spa professionals at the 2014 Global Wellness Summit in Marrakesh and is based on the International Spa Association's list of core competencies for spa management professionals. With the support of the pioneer sponsor, Biologique Recherche the 2015 Global Mentorship Pilot Program ran January to June, hosting two three-month sessions that paired 33 Mentees with 16 Mentors across 22 countries.

Detailed reviews from the 2015 participants indicated that the program was very successful and everyone found value in their mentorship experience. Discussion topics varied across the countries, however more than 50 per cent of the mentorships discussed Leadership & Management and Strategic & Business Planning.

In 2016, the Global Mentorship Program doubled the mentoring time allocated for each Mentee, featuring two six-month sessions instead of the three-month sessions offered during the 2015 Pilot Program. The number of Mentors and Mentees is also increasing, with almost double the participants in 2016. Mentees and Mentors represent over 30 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jordan, Kuwait, Maldives, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Thailand, UAE, UK, & USA.
