The Australian Airports Association Mentoring Program helps develop airport professionals in their current roles and prepares aspiring leaders to achieve their career goals within the aviation industry.

It is designed to build leadership capacity by pairing airport professionals with experienced mentors and give them an opportunity to develop and fine-tune leadership skills. Participants in mentoring programs report several benefits including improved confidence, self-awareness, clearer career direction, better communication, listening and feedback skills, more assertive communication and enhanced management skills.

To join as a mentee, you must be working at an airport within Australia that is a member of the AAA and looking to develop your skills and leadership in the Airport Sector. Contractors/Suppliers or Corporate members are not eligible to participate as mentees.

To join as a mentor, you must be a CEO, former CEO, General Manager, experienced Senior Manager or specialist in the area of your field. Mentor opportunities are open to AAA airport members and AAA corporate members only – Contractors/Suppliers are eligible if you are a member of the AAA.

Both mentees and mentors must also be willing to attend the scheduled webinars and complete the training provided.

There is no charge for the AAA mentoring program, but apply now as applications close on Friday 28th June 2019.
