About this Event

What is Mentorship WeCan?

Mentorship WeCan is a project series under the Young Professional Network Brunei (, hosted bi-monthly over a weekend where members of the public are welcomed to have a discussion with other like minded individuals over specified topics moderated by the mentors of YPN.BN who are key in the field. Over the past quarter, we have sat down with over fifty (50) individuals from different walks of life and demographic. Students, fresh graduates, newly employed, entrepreneurs, businesspeople, lecturers, retirees, and even government officials have joined us in our table talk. At the table, we strip away your titles and statuses, and all that remain is your individuality and experiences. Everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and emotions in a safe judgment free zone. During our Mentorship WeCan sessions, we aim to practice empathy, authentic engagement, and actively work on the social issues the community is facing.
