Climbing the career ladder is a lot of work, with the ever changing work place and job expectations in the 21st century, it is crucial for young professionals to be adaptable and develop desirable soft skills to succeed in the work place (from public speaking to conflict management, leadership and networking.).

How successful you are in your career is no longer just based on WHAT you know, but on WHO you know. You can be the best in your field (Accountant, Lawyer, Sales rep, Biochemist, Teacher, Nurse, Engineer, Program coordinator, Data analyst etc...), but if nobody knows who you are, your dedication and quality of work, you'll constantly find yourself being overlooked for promotions and opportunities.

The good news is you're not alone! There are countless resources out there from networking events to free/affordable workshops on public speaking, and what's more encouraging is there are others who are interested in meeting with one another to share ideas, experiences and supporting one another to succeed. Whether you are recently out of school or years into your career and looking to advance, this group is for you. Come and Meet other professionals, build your network, develop your professionalism and learn from those who have the results you want.

Experience is a good teacher but comes at a cost of TIME and OPPORTUNITIES, but next best is other people's experiences! Let us come and share with one another ideas, experiences, aspirations and succeed together!

Brainstormed ideas to be covered this year:

  • Networking skills and Networking workshops
  • Workplace etiquette (watching the Office doesn't help)
  • Industry expos
  • Toastmasters
  • Leadership book discussion/sharing
  • How can social media help you in your career?
  • Attitude is key
  • skill development workshops
  • Mentoring
  • Financial Literacy
  • Public speaking

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
