Mentoring Program

Proudly sponsored by Personalised Freight Solutions

Each year APPA members and their employees are invited to be part of a mentoring program specifically for professionals within the promotional products industry.

Whether you are a mentor looking to make a difference or a mentee ready to take your next career step, the APPA Y-Promo Mentoring Program offers a unique professional development experience for people passionate about working in promo.

The 2021/22 Mentoring Program is currently in progress and the next intake will occur mid-2022. To express your interest, please email  


A mentor is a member of the APPA membership who is an experienced promo professional with at least 10 years of promo industry experience and who feels they could assist in the growth of a less experienced promo professional. A mentor is a person who shares knowledge, offers advice, shares experiences and provides support to assist in the career development and professional growth of a mentee.

Why become a Mentor?

  • Gain recognition for your skills and experience
  • Exposure to fresh perspectives, ideas and approaches
  • Self-development through personal reflection
  • Development of your personal leadership and coaching styles
  • Benefit from a sense of fulfilment from giving back to the promo industry



A mentee is a member of the APPA membership who may have recently entered the promo industry or wanting to progress their career. A mentee must be willing to listen, learn and challenge their ideas to get the most out of the mentoring relationship.

 Why become a Mentee?

  • Learn from the best in your industry
  • Gain an outside perspective to workplace related challenges
  • Target your areas for career development and professional growth
  • Exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking
  • Pathways into leadership within the Association and the profession in general
