Happy 2014 from the Webinar Program!

There are a few reasons why I’m especially excited about the lineup of webinars we’re bringing to our alumni in the first month of 2014.  I am focused on making January a month of reawakening as our office rethinks the strategy behind many of our programs and prepares for a busy second semester.  I believe our lineup of January webinars reflects the mood, as all of our presenters are highly energized and talented professionals that bring something unique to the “table.”

Seven of the ten presenters (four Hoyas and three “friends of Georgetown”) have never done a webinar for ACS, and I am glad to kick off our year with fresh faces so we can ensure we are offering content that fits the needs of all of our alumni.

An impressive nine out of our ten January presenters are entrepreneurs.  Each hail from a variety of industries and experience levels, but they all unite in a common thread: their business seeks to improve the lives of others in some way, shape, or form.  There’s Health Coach Janice Levitt (EML’12) who works with her clients to address their personal/professional issues holding them back from their ideal health and happiness.  There’s Arthur Woods (B’10), who left Google to co-found Imperative, a company that promotes discovery, self awareness, and community involvement on the path to a purpose-driven career.   There’s Christine Brown-Quinn (I’82), who left a 20+ year career in finance to launch ’Women in Business Superseries’ in order to create a platform to share success strategies for getting ahead in demanding corporate environments.

Each of these presenters will not only discuss their very interesting career paths, but they will also offer advice on leadership, branding, start-up environments, flexible workplace initatives, storytelling, time management, planning a purposeful career, and nanotechnology.  I hope you will join us for at least one of our January webinars and feel energized.  Cheers to you and your career in 2014!
