The FEI Peer2Peer Program provides the opportunity for FEI members to leverage the depth of knowledge and experience available across the FEI network, while making new professional connections nationwide.
How it works
All members, other than our mentors, are asked to volunteer areas of functional expertise, career and leadership experiences and industries that they’d be prepared to discuss with other FEI members over a call or coffee. Premium, Alumni and Mentee members can request to be ‘matched’ to an FEI member on the basis of a specific need or area of interest. As for our mentoring program, we handpick the most suitable FEI member and provide an introduction. With up to 3 introductions a year, we make it easy to expand your network in a way that’s comfortable and meaningful for you.
The FEI Alumni Program is designed to help our mentoring program alumni maintain and develop their senior professional networks while on their journey to CFO (and becoming an FEI Mentor!).
‘Rel8’ CFO/Mentee Networking Lunches
FEI Rel8 lunches are a ‘no excuses’ option to ensure that our former Mentees remain connected to their FEI Mentors and build their professional networks in the process. Mentees are invited annually to a small group lunch — with their FEI Mentor and 3 other former FEI Mentor/Mentee pairs. Groupings are hand picked by FEI to ensure that Mentees connect with not only their own cohort, but meet other CFOs and senior finance executives.
FEI Mentoring Masterclass
FEI Program Alumni may also attend our annual Mentoring Masterclass to hone skills for their own turn at mentoring. Delivered by an external expert, the FEI Masterclass is pitched at senior executives wishing to enhance the critical leadership skills that make a good mentor. While our FEI Mentors make it look easy, good mentoring requires knowledge and practice — and FEI can provide both to our alumni. After a career enhancing experience in the Flagship Mentoring Program, Mentees can take this opportunity to ‘pay it forward’.
The FEI Events Program offers a range of unique events and formats for finance executives to meet and connect with their peers and enjoy interacting with a variety of relevant, insightful and educational speakers.
