Fall is finally here! For most people, that means the return to classes, or balancing work and student schedules, but for me it signals the start of conference season. I’m very excited to announce three upcoming speaking events. Hope you’ll check them out!

Tuesday October 7, 5:30-6:30 – CV to Resume Webinar from The SearchLite
One of my favourite topics! This free webinar is being offered by The SearchLite, an amazing group based out of Michigan that hosts a fantastic Innovator in Residence (IIR) program for PhDs and postdoctoral fellows to gain real industry experience, from wherever you are in the world. For registration and more details, see http://thesearchlite.com/cv-to-resume-workshop/

Saturday October 18, 9-5 – “Branding You” at HIVEX 2014 from the Hamilton Hive
I was thrilled to be invited to speak on personal and professional branding, and developing an effective social media presence. Woohoo! Another chance to talk about LinkedIn, and to interact with Hamilton’s young “movers & shakers.” Can’t wait! Check out the full lineup and register at http://www.hamiltonhive.ca/event/hivex2014/

Saturday November 8, 9-4:30 – “How to Seize Opportunities for Personal & Professional Growth” Leadership Summit for Women from the YWCA Hamilton, McMaster University & the MSU
This is one of my most exciting fall initiatives. In speaking with other professional women, across fields and disciplines, I have found that we all struggle with similar areas: self-assertion, firm and clear communication, and negotiating for our own goals. I absolutely cannot wait for this interactive, hands-on workshop to share tools and strategies with the women of Hamilton.
