What kind of impression do you want to make?


Professional branding is the practice of marketing your career and business as a brand. It is the ongoing process of establishing an impression in the minds of others about who you are, and what services or products you provide.  It is how you show up in the world for your prospective employers, current employers, or clients and customers.


You have the opportunity to be strategic and intentional in creating your brand. These presentations help you to create a high-impact LinkedIn profile to increase your visibility, whether you are on a job search or connecting with potential customers. These presentations are offered to organizations and associations who want to support their clients and members in their LinkedIn professional branding efforts.


Contact Sheila to discuss how she can customize the presentations to meet your specific needs and objectives.

Training Program

Thriving in a Multi-Generational Workplace

This is a timely topic because currently there are five generations working together in the workplace.  These generations – The Great Generation or Veterans, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y (Millennials, Echo Boomers), and Generation Z  – all have different expectations, values, perspectives, and relationships with communication, technology, and the concept of “work”, including management expectations and career paths.


This workshop is custom designed to meet the specific needs of companies and organizations. Workshops include interactive exercises and educational content incorporating generational differences, individual strengths, and effective communication strategies.  It is designed to help individuals recognize the value in differences and individual strengths, and how to use these for clear and positive communication to create a more cohesive work environment.


Contact Sheila to discuss facilitating this training program for your company or organization.
