July 2012 – No Meeting

Due to summer vacations we are not holding a meeting in July. We wish everyone a safe and happy summer and we look forward to seeing you again Friday, August 24th!

August Meeting Topic

We’re extremely proud and fortunate to welcome internationally known speaker, Linda Davis OConnell, to talk to us about “Storytelling to Win!”

Storytelling is a powerful means to engage and inspire others, and a vital skill for leaders to master. In the past many of us have depended on data to convince and compel others. The problem is data tends to be dry, boring and often does not show the whole picture. In this presentation you will learn to craft stories that are credible, succinct and emotionally powerful. These stories will enhance your data, engage your listeners, illustrate value and long be remembered.
Linda is the owner of Learnologie, a company providing learning and development solutions to improve the effectiveness, productivity, engagement and job satisfaction of leaders and professionals. She has her Masters in Human Resources Management along with 25 years working for technology and financial services firms. She is known for her groundbreaking and acutely relevant programs that address the unprecedented challenges of the 21st century workplace. Linda is an international conference presenter and a frequent professional association speaker, engaging her audience with energy, storytelling and humor.

Please plan to join us for our August meeting and Please RSVP. While you’re at it, like us on Facebook so we can continue the dialogue!
