Palm Bay, FL— Florida International Talkers invites Brevard County residents and remote guests to a special Toastmasters program, “Keys to an Effective Mentorship.” The free event will be held Sunday, May 2 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Memaw’s BBQ Restaurant, 4916 Babcock Street NE in Palm Bay, as well as virtually on Zoom.com.
“Being a successful mentor, as well as learning from one, are skills that are important in the business world,” says Deborah Wilde, chapter president. “We welcome the public to attend, either at the restaurant or online. This is a significant professional and academic topic.”
Following the keynote speech by Wilde, members and guests will enjoy an impromptu speaking activity. Public relations chair Rachael Assignon, who has served in several roles with the group, will assist with the presentation.
“Mentorship is valuable for both the student and mentor,” says Assignon. “It’s a win-win.”
