Kirsty Shearer joins CREW Mentorship Programme
Agilité Solutions’ development director, Kirsty Shearer, has been invited to act as a mentor for members of the CREW UK network – with a trio of one-to-one sessions already confirmed over the coming weeks.
Launched last month (June 2020), the mentorship programme provides CREW affiliates with valuable opportunities for personal and professional growth through focused, hour-long sessions with thought leaders from across the global construction industry.
As part of her role, Kirsty will set aside two days per month to share ideas and advice with the wider CREW network. Discussions will centre around various topics, including Agilité’s core skill-sets – such as construction management, general contracting, consulting, business development and relocation services – but also transferable conversations around soft skills such as communication, time management, cross-border collaboration and further opportunities to grow respective networks.
The US-based 12,000-strong member community has a global footprint spread across 75+ industries, and is known for transforming the international commercial real estate industry by advancing women globally.
Having joined CREW earlier this year, Kirsty said: “I’ve had lots of insightful discussions with my fellow members since signing up, and I’m thrilled to be able to formalise my role by sitting on the panel of mentors.
“Of the sessions I have held to-date, I found them to be very much a two-way chat – with both of us sharing challenges, opinions and ideas. It’s great to be able to connect with people across the globe and learn from those who are facing similar experiences – albeit in different geographies.”
Prior to officially joining the mentorship scheme, Kirsty joined representatives from MillerThomson LLP and The Instant Group for a ‘CREW Coffee’ in May. The trio hosted a COVID-focused webinar which reflected on ‘How to grow your network in a virtual environment’ – a session which was well-received by the wider group.
