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.

Working in the Medical Device Industry- Engineers Need both Soft & Hard Skills to Maximize their Opportunity
by Lisa Sasso, Executive Coach & Motivational Speaker, Medical Device Partners and John Sasso, Medical Device Product Development and Commercial Consultant, Sasso Solutions

Did you know there are 480 Medical Device firms in the Boston area. Massachusetts ranks third in the country for Medical Device Employment after CA and only slightly after MN in this sector. Lisa will share this and other important facts that will help you to better understand the industry and determine the opportunity. While many of these firms are looking for individuals (consultants or otherwise) with specialized electrical engineering skills, there are other considerations, such as being able to effectively communicate your offering and demonstrate understanding the customer (in this case the medical device company). In Lisa’s current role as an Executive Coach, and as the past President/CEO of a medical device company that she grew from inception to $28M, she will make the case that working on your soft skills is equally important and needed today for personal and professional success. These skills will not only be of value to you in the case of a medical device company, but also with your other clients, industry partners and in your daily life.

Many of you possess sought after specialized skills that are applicable across industries. But when you talk to someone in the medical device industry, are you able to not only clearly point to your relevant experience, but also talk to these individuals using their jargon? As a consultant and operations executive with extensive medical device product development and commercialization experience, John will bridge the gap from your hard technical skills to medical device field terminology. While it may be that you are only hired for a certain specific project, how can you expand that engagement to provide more value and establish more domain knowledge? John will make the case for leveraging medical device application/end user needs understanding as part of your communication.

PLEASE NOTE: The meeting is open to the public. No charge for anyone that knows me and mentions my name, Lisa Sasso (when registering). Casual dress. Registration
(no registration required)

The Consultants Network meeting starts at 6:30 PM. The meeting will take place at Constant Contact, Reservoir Place – 1601 Trapelo Road, Waltham, MA 02451, in the Great Room on the first floor
