The first ever Speed Mentoring event took place on April 13th in The Hague. Expatstimes organised the event which focused on mentorship and guidance. The participating audience were young professionals, entrepreneurs, and expatriates. Opening speeches were held by Expatstimes Prashant Shukla and Johann Stan.
