The third CTW China takes off today with the introduction of its new mentorship programme that facilitates expert delegates to connect with other practitioners in the vocation throughout the event. With deliberate interaction and socialisation activities built into their 3-day programme, a key benefit for all delegates will be the takeaway of collective wisdom of their mentors and assigned groups.
Through this initiative, many of the relationships established during CTW China 2017 are expected to transcend beyond the event and weave into each delegate’s growing professional and informal networks.
Mentors headlining this inaugural initiative include Adidas, Apple, Lenovo and Siemens amongst others. They join over 30 other notable organisations like AirPlus International, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Delta Air Lines, DIDI Chuxing, MasterCard Asia Pacific, Michelin (China) Investment, Travelport and Unilever as expert speakers staging the 10 anticipated conference sessions.
“My own humble beginnings of being a corporate travel professional for 11 years have led me to believe in and value the immense benefits of peer-sharing and co-learning. During my early years, I would have appreciated the opportunity to harness the knowledge of seniors in the field. Being a mentor at CTW China will allow me to give back to the community. I look forward to sharing my experience, energy and ideas with more industry friends here,” said mentor Li Lei, Founder of Youli Consulting.
The winner was hand-picked after an intensive selection process that included preliminary nominations, written interviews and endorsements. Liu won the eventual titles over 18 other nominations. The final selection was made by the judging panel comprising of TTG China and TTG-BTmice China’s editorial panel, representatives from co-organisers TTG Events and Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) China, as well as industry partners Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) Asia Pacific.
Expressed Liu, “It is an honor to be recognised by the very industry that I have had the pleasure to witness and also enjoy tremendous growth in the past 10 years. In addition to the trust and vote by CTW China Awards’ nomination committee.”
