Full Speed Ahead

In Mentorship on February 2, 2011 at 8:50 pm

The mentorship team has met with the CPRS board and set goals for the next half of the program! We appreciate the consideration the CPRS team has given us; all input improves our experience in the mentorship program. Here are a few areas we will focus on in the coming months:

–          Have a mentor or two meet with all of us “mentees” in order to open up our sessions to a broader group discussion

–          We plan to visit the Glenbow Museum to check out the CPRS archives and see what we can find

–          Each of us would like to make an effort to chat with our mentors about the benefits of CPRS and review the ethics standards the   organization upholds

–          We are going to read Marsha Sinetar’s book, “The Mentor Spirit: Life Lessons on Leadership and the art of Encouragement.”

–          Blog about CPRS and related events we attend

–          Additionally, we are excited to launch “30SecondsWith” – a video project featuring quick-tips from Calgary-based PR & Media professionals on a variety of Communications-related topics. Visit http://30secondswith.blogspot.com/ over the next few months to check in on the project and to join the conversation! If you have a suggestion for a speaker or topic, please email cprscalgarymentorship@gmail.com.

That’s all for now. We’ll keep you updated as our adventures continue. Feel free to share any comments or ideas!
