Our mission

To coach the next generation of marketing professionals in Dallas-Fort Worth by providing an environment defined by a growth mindset, inclusion, and compassion.


What does it mean to be a protégé

A protégé is a marketing professional who has identified an area of growth they’d like to address related to their career or leadership skills. For example, as a protégé you may feel like you’re not getting enough coaching or support in the workplace, or you crave new learning opportunities, so you may be looking for a mentor to help you grow. If this describes you, you’re in the right place!

Areas of support you may be looking for from a mentor include: 

  • Communication / presentation skills
  • How to achieve a promotion
  • How to find a new job
  • Navigating relationships across departments
  • Technical marketing skills
  • Industry-specific knowledge
  • Developing and executing a marketing strategy
  • Leading a team
  • How to craft your resume
  • And much, much more
