Paul Osincup | Leveraging Levity: Humor as a Strategy for Workplace Positivity

This high-energy, funny, and content-rich talk will explore both why and how to use humor as a tool for positivity, productivity, and success at work. Although it's packed full of actionable and research-based ideas for implementation in the work of symposium attendees and their clients, this talk is only appropriate for those who enjoy laughing.

February 6 | Resume & Profile E-Summit: Master Lessons in Writing Executive Resumes & LinkedIn Profiles

The session will be recorded and all registrants will receive access to the materials, live session, and recording. Qualifies for 2 CEUs.

Learning to write executive resumes and LinkedIn profiles is MORE than just being a great writer! You must understand what these clients do and how they do it … interview them to capture the critical information you need … know what achievements are the most significant and how to best showcase them … quickly demonstrate, in your first communication with each prospective client, that you are THE best resume writer for them.

Learning to communicate with senior management and executive clients can be challenging. They have high expectations and want you to speak their language. It's essential for you to know what resources are available to educate yourself about executive job seekers and what proactive steps you can take to grasp a wealth of knowledge about words, concepts, strategies, business operations, and so much more.

In this intensive 2-hour webinar, Wendy and Marie will share their expertise about how to write, structure, and design resumes that will satisfy the most discriminating clientele and successfully position them for high-level opportunities.

In addition to the information-rich webinar presentation, you'll also receive a portfolio of sample resumes and LinkedIn profiles, a list of resources to enhance your executive knowledge, and other handouts to guide you as your build and/or expand your own executive practice.

February 4 | Certified Personal Brand Strategist Program Registration Closes

Personal branding isn't the flavor of the month. It is a transformational process that entrepreneurs, small business owners, executives, professionals, and job seekers use to find authenticity and articulate the branded value that makes them more influential, indispensable, and incredibly happy at work.
For your clients, personal branding is the future of career management and a proactive solution for their long-term career success.

Personal branding launches your career, boosting your confidence to know you are doing the best for your client, taking the right steps and not having to make it up as you go.
After the CPBS program, you'll sound and feel like an expert, exiting the spiral of constantly hunting new clients at a low price point with your new, long-term value proposition that converts your ideal clients.

In the Certified Personal Brand Strategist program, you will learn the Reach Personal Branding, a comprehensive, three-step process for uncovering, communicating, and nurturing your personal brand.
