Session 1 - When Your Ship Comes In
Do you feel like you are the captain of your career or more like a galley slave - chained to a job you do not like or perhaps one that pays slave wages?
In the first session of the evening, Jack will discuss short-term tactics and long-term strategies for increasing your corporate value - and thus your standard of living.
"My career has had its highs, its lows and everything in between. I learned from each win and each challenge. I will share my life and career changing realizations with you in this entertaining and informative session.
As a mentor once told me: 'Learn from the success and failures of others - it's faster then making them yourself'"
Session 2 - Advancing Your Career Using Personal Branding
I recently went to a conference where attendees' name tags included the phrase, "Ask me about ______[then the answer attendees provided when registering]." While the intent was to give attendees a way to break the ice when networking, I realized the whole concept of personal branding could be summarized by that simple statement, "Ask me about _____."
How is project management viewed in your organization? Does your boss's boss think of your department as a core part of the development team or a commodity to be acquired at the lowest possible proce given and accepatable level of quality?
In this session, Jack will discuss not only how you can increase the value you bring to your organization but also increase your perceived value and the increase the income that comes with it.
