We have a great group of mentees lined up, but are in need of more mentors to participate.

You will also be expected to meet weekly one-on-one with your mentor or mentee, and to complete a few required elements like a Mentoring Agreement, a Matching Application, and a post-program Survey. The time commitment required is approximately 16 weeks.

The Bay Area advertising industry’s favorite event is coming up on October 18th!
In 2010 the Education Outreach committee launched the first BAARC Mentoring program.
For the 6th and upcoming Fall 2013 Mentoring Group, BAARC is seeking approximately 10-15 mentors and 10-15 mentees from media companies, digital firms, ad agencies, media agencies, marketing organizations, etc. Some of these individuals will come from industry partners like STAR, SFBig, Greater SF Ad Club – so it will be a very diverse group to make the learning experience as rewarding as possible. Each Mentoring Pair will be matched according to common objectives and interests, and there is a structured curriculum including monthly group sessions with facilitated meetings and activities.

In my role as managing director of our San Francisco/Western Region office, I have the pleasure of meeting many unsung heroes in the rapidly growing mobile commerce economy in North America. Most of my connections are with start-ups and mature companies focusing on consumer mobile services, so it’s always refreshing—and sometimes eye-opening—to meet someone driving massive mobile dollar volumes “behind the curtain” of enterprise mobility.
Our office recently hosted an evening for about 100 members of the San Francisco branch of the American Marketing Association, and I had the pleasure to be on a “What’s Happening in Mobile?” panel moderated by Will Decker, vice president and product manager for the Wells Fargo corporate mobile banking platform, the CEO Mobile® service.
Will kicked off the panel by asking the audience to guess how much money moved through the CEO Mobile service (mobile web and iPhone app) in 2012. He offered three choices:
- $170 million
- $1.7 billion
- $17 billion
The winner? $17 Billion!
