Could you mentor a rookie?

One of the primary aims of BSides Manchester is to develop the grass-roots of the InfoSec community, and that is why we have always run a Rookie Track at our conference. We want to give a friendly platform for people to get into speaking at an InfoSec conference.

To help and support our rookie presenters we have always offered them a mentor - someone to support, guide and coach the rookie speakers, and give them the benefit of their experience as they prepare to give their talk. If you want to get involved then please let us know and we'll hook you up with a rookie.

All mentors will get a guaranteed conference ticket and the kudos of knowing they are supporting the up and coming InfoSec community.
