What is this?

Mentor in a Box is an education project to develop a video web library, teaching competent leadership skills to mentees of I'll Drink to That Toastmasters.

Inspired by the OpenCourseWare (OCW) Movement, the library will prepare mentees for the basics of competent leadership so they are more engaged during the weekly meetings. Mentees can search for a subject through the blog archive; play, pause and rewind tutorials; and stay up to date of new videos and postings by email.

This is certainly a work in process. So please feel free to subscribe to stay current! If you have questions, comments or would like to contribute to Mentor in a Box, email me @ mentorinabox@gmail.com. Mentor can also be found on YouTube here.

Although this video is not specifically about competent leadership skills, it does provide a great starting point to write a great speech; and great leadership takes great speeches.

  1. If you have never written a speech, it could be difficult for you to write it successfully for the first time. In order to impress your audience with your speech you have to spend a lot of time on making an outline, writing and revising.
