Bob Vitamante to Give SABER Presentation on ‘What Is a Mentor?’

The Santa Barbara Executive Roundtable (SABER) will host a presentation titled “What Is a Mentor and What Does It Mean to Have One?” by Bob Vitamante, CPA, business consultant, executive coach, investor, volunteer and chairman of the Santa Barbara Chapter of SCORE.

The presentation will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 14 at the University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara St. in Santa Barbara.

The cost is $35, or $40 at door, and includes breakfast. Seating is limited. The registration deadline is noon Wednesday, Feb. 13.

With his vast and varied background, Vitamante will share his wealth of practical insights in a form that has always been at the core of his consulting services — that of a mentor.

Attendees will learn about using a mentor and will walk away knowing how this form of advice can be the safest, sanest, most effective and least costly path to developing winning strategies. Topics will include what a mentor is, how they operate, how they differ from other advisers, and how they can help in numerous ways that other professionals can’t.

Vitamante has had a successful career in assisting business leaders and organizations in resolving the challenges that face all of today’s businesses. From raising capital, to going public, to business acquisitions and reorganizations, he has functioned as a C-level operating and financial executive of A-List companies such as Select Temporaries, Pinkerton’s Inc., The Olsten Corporation and Columbia Pictures Industries Inc. He also has taken a technology company public as well as launched a retail store, a consulting service, an importing company and two MLM companies — all in addition to a successful early 10-year career as a CPA with KPMG Peat Marwick, the world’s largest CPA firm.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
