The Cape's young professionals can expect a business boost thanks to a new monthly mentoring program in Hyannis. Cape Cod Young Professionals (CCYP) announced the start of a new series entitled Mentor Monday. The program which starts in December is part of the organization's Career Connect Mentor Exchange.
"Mentor Monday is an exciting new program that is, in essence, speed mentoring," said CCYP Executive Director Anne Van Vleck.
Young professionals interested in attending the monthly presentations need not be a member of CCYP. Each month a new presenter will tackle a different topic. Following dinner and the presentation, attendees will split into small roundtable discussions led by mentors. "Mentor Monday is a pillar of the Mentor Exchange to help young professionals start or advance their careers or businesses," said Van Vleck.
The program kicks off on Monday, December 8 from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at Alberto's Ristorante, 360 Main Street in Hyannis. The topic will be "Work Life Balance: How to Manage It All and Have Fun Trying". The December 8 speakers will be Courtney Poignand, founder and principal consultant of the Center for Self Care and Brad Glass, leadership coach for the Road Not Taken.
Upcoming Mentor Monday topics include:
