Hello and welcome to this talk on Mentoring and First Line Managers. My name is John Neugebauer. After a first career in the UK National Health Service, I worked in International Banking Human Resources, and I've held senior positions in HR in the UK. I've been a university business school lecturer and a management consultant. So why should I be speaking to you today? Well on mentoring, I've acted as the UK and international mentor to managers and to aspiring managers, and I have taught mentoring. I have also worked as a consultant in a mentoring project at the University of West of England in which we worked with Airbus, the Royal Air Force and the Royal Aeronautical Society. This was a special project to develop careers of women in aviation and is called Alta. I'll say more about special interest groups for mentoring later in the presentation.

The aims of this session are to understand, what we mean by the term mentoring; the benefits of mentoring to the mentor mentee, and for the organization; we'll look at how to work effectively in a mentoring relationship; we'll then look at when mentoring may be especially helpful; and we'll finish with some suggested action plans.
