Cape Cod Young Professionals (CCYP), a nonprofit organization that works to connect, engage, and advance young professionals on Cape Cod, will host a “Mentor Tuesday” event on February 13th from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Alberto’s Restaurant (360 Main Street, Hyannis). The event is designed to provide attendees with the benefits of mentoring in a fun and interactive format. Mentor Tuesday is open to the public. The cost is $10 for CCYP members and $15 for non-members. Space is limited, so attendees are asked to register in advance at www.capecodyoungprofessionals.org/MentorTuesday.
The featured speaker for the event is Stuart Simon, LICSW, MCC, a senior faculty member of the Gestalt International Study Center in Welfleet with thirty-five years of experience as a Master Certified Coach, psychotherapist, consultant, and trainer. Mr. Simon’s presentation – titled “Why Don’t People Change When I Tell Them To? Applying the Paradoxical Theory of Change to Career Development” – will highlight common barriers to professional growth and offer solutions as to how attendees can overcome them.
Following the featured presentation, participants will split into rotating “speed mentoring” breakout sessions, led by a group of community business leaders. These “table mentors” will facilitate discussion on the featured topic and share their own wisdom and experiences with attendees. Participants will rotate between Table Mentors every fifteen minutes to allow for dynamic and varied conversation. The slate of Table Mentors for the evening includes:
John L. Allen, Executive Director, John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum;
David Augustinho, Executive Director, Cape & Islands Workforce Development Board;
Paul Dunn, Project Manager, Cape Associates;
Polly Goddard, Professional Development & Leadership Coach, Sandbar Coaching and Counseling;
Tammi Jacobsen, Director of Workforce Development Training, Cape Cod Community College;
Beth Marcus, Owner, Cape Cod Beer; JR Mell, Executive Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands.
Laura Newstead, Chief Human Resources Officer, Cape Cod Five; and Stuart Simon, Faculty and Professional Associate, Gestalt International Study Center.
“Mentor Tuesday presents a really unique opportunity for attendees to benefit from expert-level career coaching and guidance from a range of accomplished leaders right here on Cape Cod,” said Lauren Barker, Chief Executive Officer of CCYP. “It’s rare to get this quality of mentoring from so many different sources all in one night.”
