This webinar will show you how these things are done using an online and how other technologies can help or hinder.

Why should you attend:

Rene D.Petrin After spending years in human resources and discovering that most companies weren't doing an adequate job developing their number one asset-employees-Rene D. Petrin had a mission: to create an organization devoted solely to teaching businesses how to mentor talent.

This entrepreneurial spirit combined with his keen insight into human behavior led Rene to found Management Mentors, Inc. in 1989. Management Mentors’ philosophy is simple: to show companies how structured mentoring programs are the most powerful and effective strategy for professional development within an organization.

With more than 12 years of experience as a Vice President of Human Resources in both healthcare and sales organizations, Rene has experience managing all areas of human resources, but he’s always maintained a special interest in employee development. Through his concentration in this field, he began to realize the power of mentoring in organizations and increased his focus on this area. Rene’s educational background is equally impressive: he earned a master’s degree in consulting and counseling psychology from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree in health administration and planning from the University of New Hampshire.

Today, Rene strives to be a leader in the mentoring field rather than just "another" consultant. To this end, he has developed mentoring tools, such as online tutorials, that are unique in emphasizing the interpersonal dynamics in mentoring while at the same time working toward creating standards of excellence so that the mentoring profession maintains its integrity and promise.
