New members are invited to be part of the Mentoring System in Lucan Toastmasters. New members, if desired, can be assigned to a Senior Toastmaster who will mentor them. Mentoring is a good way of seeking advice and support from more senior members of the club. The mentoring system helps newer members learn about how the club operates.
Mentoring is especially beneficial when new members are preparing to deliver their first speech. Usually mentors’ services are required for the first three speeches but they can always be called on when a mentee requires their support. Mentoring a new member can be beneficial for the mentor also as mentoring is project 9 in the Competent Leader programme.
If you would like a mentor or to be a mentor contact our current Immediate Past President, Philip O’ Callaghan.
