Your Professional Brand and Career Strategy

March 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST


Hosted by Stella Mashkevitch and Mridula Allani

Please join us to celebrate International Women’s History Month by building your career brand and strategy while networking with fellow professionals. This inspiring career development workshop will be led by the found of NowForward Coaching, Bob Loftis.

Successful people step back from what they are doing periodically to evaluate progress: am I headed in the right direction? How will I know when I need a change? Am I getting the support I need to grow and improve?


Our values drive our behavior and our job satisfaction. Knowing and using your values helps your visibility and recognition. If you are not feeling excited at your work, probably some key value is not being met.


In this session we’ll discuss values, how they contribute to your “brand” at work, and how to create a strategy for your own growth. With an Aim for your career, plus realistic goals, you can track your progress and move ahead at the pace that you most want. Join us for some practice to get you started…or make faster progress!
