Speaking Engagements

CAREER COMPASS GROUP-Professional Boston Meetup Group

Career- Position and profession you want
Compass- Directions to get there
Group-Place and event to find your position and directions ( such as a 
Meetup event )

I created this group as a potential road map for professionals in the local Boston area who want guidance in landing a career or progress their career forward in Technology or Business. The goal of this
Meetup,  Career Compass Group, is to be an Information Resource for career minded individuals working in Business with emphasis in ​(Technology/Management/Sales/Marketing/HR) to learn about designing a strategic career search. The meetup events will center around using the latest job search tools out there.  We will help educate our audiences how to brand yourself as a viable candidate within the business or technology profession, as well as provide a forum for professionals to network with other individuals in a collaborative environment.  The most important function of this group is to provide a safe haven for professionals to ask questions in a confidential environment. They won't have to worry about being judged or fear for their current employer finding out that they are seeking information to possibly make a job change.  This group will provide a compilation of various job search seminars I will be teaching along with bringing in guest speakers.  The emphasis will be sharing insights from a variety of perspectives from people who have successful careers in Business & Technology.

As someone who struggled with finding their career passion for many years, I finally found it it in Talent Acquisition.  I wish I had a group like this to turn to that offered insight, information and advice into different career options when I was trying to discover my career passion. I started this group to give back and pay the favor forward to all the people who have had a piece in helping me to progress in my career!

​​​When I speak to audiences I really try to make an effort to make sure that my presentations ​won't include the attributes that I hated when I attended speaker engagements!  So what does that mean?

When you attend a CCG Speaking Engagement ​your time and attendance will be respected!  This means you will be exposed to a speaking experience that is informative around your specific agenda, along with being entertaining and interactive to constantly keep your interest engaged!  Also we want to create opportunities for valuable networking which is critically important to people in job search mode.
