April 3-4, 2019 – Iowa Employment Conference
“Your Success is in YOU!”

I’m VERY excited to present at the 2019 Iowa Employment Conference. Not only will I get a chance to meet, speak to, and learn from great people at the conference, I’ll get to revisit my old stomping grounds, Des Moines, IA, where I attended undergrad! Drake Bulldogs, here I come!

April 20, 2019 – Professional Women’s Group
“The Art of Negotiating”

On average, U.S. women still only make $0.80 for every dollar earned by a man. This just should not be! As a former Talent Acquisition leader, I know the gap isn’t always a result of discrimination. Often, women (and people of color) don’t know to or know how to negotiate for more. In this session, I’m going to help the women level the playing field and get what their worth! Join us!

May 1, 2019 – Missouri Employment Conference
“Your Success is in YOU!”

This will be my first year presenting at this conference and I’m so excited! As an HR leader and practitioner, it’s always a good feeling to speak to your former peers. I’m looking forward to learning as much as I share, and can’t wait to meet everyone!

May 2, 2019 – AAIM Leadership Conference
“Let L.O.V.E. Grow Your Results: Engaging Your Employees for Productivity, Profitability, and Competitive Advantage”

When AAIM came calling, I had to answer! What a treat it will be to share this talk (and personal story) about a leader I know who was able to accomplish AMAZING results through his people, all because he understood how to use L.O.V.E.

May 7, 2019 – National Assn. of Workforce Development Professionals
“Your Success is in YOU!”

Another first! I’ve never spoken at this conference, but am looking forward to sharing this powerful message! Let’s do this!

January 8-12, 2018 – Join me on Facebook Live!

I’m so excited because today is the 7th anniversary for my business, CAREERCompass, LLC!  On this day in 2011, I decided to take the plunge to do the work I love and felt called to do.  A lot has changed since the beginning including my business’ name (anyone remember CareerVolution, LLC?), and the most recent change – my hair!  Hey, I’m a girl, that’s what we do!

While trying to decide what I’d do for myself to celebrate, I thought it would be a fabulous idea to do something for all of you too!  So, I’m inviting you to join me on Facebook Live next week.  Every evening for SEVEN minutes, beginning at SEVEN pm CDT from January 8-12, I’m going to give you a POWERFUL tip on the top issues so many professionals are struggling to overcome in their career.

That’s right, you only have to invest SEVEN minutes, but I believe this small investment of your time will be a game changer for your career!

To participate, all you have to do is “Like” my Facebook fan page (http://bit.ly/2AQ4a5G), set your alarms, and join me next week on Facebook Live.

Let the celebrations begin!  #TakeBackYourCareer
