Mentor/ Protégé Program

SMPS Dallas offers educational programs, networking events and professional development for all aspects of a marketer’s career, but have you ever wished you had a personal mentor? Someone who would meet with you one-on-one to focus on your career goals?

The SMPS Dallas Mentor Protégé program matches entry and mid-level marketers with mentors who have at least 5 years of additional experience, and matches senior leaders in peer-to-peer mentoring relationships.

As part of the program, you will:

  • Kick the program off with a half-day workshop in January focused on personal development.

  • Meet monthly with your mentor or protégé to discuss career development and focus on meeting goals. (Each mentor-protégé pair determines for themselves the best time to meet.  Often this is over breakfast, lunch, happy hour or even a scheduled time to walk in a park together.)

  • Have a trusted relationship where you can reach out to to get help as you need it.

The cost to participate for the year is $100 for member protégés, and $175 for non-member protégés and complimentary for mentors.
