Goal Setting for Success Jan 20 2016

Complimentary workshop Set Your Personal & Professional Goals for 2016

This is the one program that I do annually, where everyone is welcome! (For several years, it has been a webinar. This year I decided to hold the program as a workshop which will also give attendees the opportunity for networking.)

For this workshop you do not have to be a Medical Device Professional, all are welcome. The objective of the workshop is to start everyone off right with appropriate goals for the year. Also, please encourage your friends & colleagues to come as well so everyone can be on the same page about what it takes to be successful by Learning how to Set your Personal & Professional Goals for 2016. Click here if you want to more info. or to hold your spot.

There is no charge for attending the workshop, this is my gift to you.  However, I am asking that you make a nominal donation to one of my favorite charities.  I am making a donation for any of my current clients who attend.  I will have donation envelopes available for the American Heart Association, Children’s Hospital and the Little Hearts Organization. It is about starting the year in Gratitude.

I hope that you join me to start 2016 off right. Giving is not only a December activity, we can all make contributions (gifts) throughout the year. Together we can make the world a better place. Click here to send me an email and reserve your spot for this workshop.

Please leave your name and email and any other comments on what you want to get out of it. You will be added to the Goal Setting list (people that are planning on attending the event). It also helps me plan for an approximate count for snacks, set-up and your personal needs.
You can still decide on Jan 20th to join the workshop and certainly attend.

I look forward to spending the evening with you on Wednesday, Jan. 20th. You will leave with some tangible goals and a mini-road map for going forward in 2016. There will also be a
FREE drawing for people in attendance at 8:00 pm.
